Melbourne



So Miss P and I had a brilliant time in Melbourne! Firstly, we were child free! That is always a serious bonus.... secondly we were spouse free, which meant LOTS of shopping :D
Friday we hit the city... lots of little boutiques & lovely alley way coffee shops. Not to mention the chocolate shops! Mmmmm..... Late friday afternoon we treated ourselves to some pampering. Miss P had a 40 min back & shoulder massage & I had a 40 min foot massage. Heaven! I actually fell asleep hehe....
Friday evening we ate at a lovely Italian Restaurant then had a romantic horse & carriage ride around the city. (Very well worth the price).
Saturday was spent doing MORE shopping at one of the HUGEST shopping centres in the southern Hemisphere. My feet were sore by the end of that! Then I got to visit a good friend and her brand spanking new baby in hospital...
Saturday night I was TOOOO tired & my feet were too sore to head out, so we got take away for dinner & watched a movie in our room.
Sunday we hit the St Kilda Markets, they were a little dissapointing I must say... But The cake shops on Ackland St were certainly NOT a dissapointment.....
Then it was back to the city & the Queen Victoria Markets for an hour before heading back to the airport. A whirlwind tour indeed!
Where in that period of time do you think I contracted Swine Flu?

That looks like an awesome weekend! I am glad you got to do that before #3 comes!

Were you shopping at Chadstone? I'm ten minutes from there! St Kilda market is fun but not if you want to buy anything... it's all very expensive.

Yes Chadstone! :D

And St Kilda Markets are really small!! ( I still managed to spend though!)

Sounds like an excellent weekend, but still sorry about the sadly porkine sequel.

Wow! What an awesome weekend. How good are alleyway coffee shops!!! The perfect place to sit in the corner with a book and escape the hustle and bustle :)

A bit of a bummer about the swine flu though.
