We're Home From Our Trip

We have returned from our trip to Victoria aboard the Spirit of Tasmania.

It was a novelty for the girls to sleep in a cabin on the boat as we always fly when we take interstate trips.

If you ever get the opportunity it is a lovely trip especially for the children. Here are the lights of Devonport as we departed.

We had an action packed few days with a long list of places to visit. On top of the list for me was the TS14 Factory Outlet - Thanks Rosalie for telling me about it - I loved it and will definetely make it a permanent stop each time I am in Melbourne.

One of the main reasons for our trip was the opportunity to watch our beloved "Geelong Cats". It was at the MCG and it poured with rain but luckily our seats were under cover. We were beaten by St Kilda which was really disappointing but it was a great thrill to watch them live. As you can see Kaitlin dressed for the occassion complete with cat's whiskers and her membership tag around her neck. She is a very passionate supporter.

Here they are our Geelong boys........

Another highlight of our trip for me was a much over due visit to the Robert Gordon Factory. I simply adore anything Robert Gordon and have really wanted to go for ages.

I was not disappointed !!

Look at all of this yumminess......................

I did buy one or two things - More like 10 or 12.......... LOL but they were all lovely and of course all BARGAINS !!

Only 1 week now until the Hobart Craft Fair set - up day so I am busy cutting fabric and getting things ready. If you are a local and are going to the Fair drop by my site and say Hi - You will see Jo and Helen there too....

Now I know why you had to take the car! YOu would never have fit all your shopping into a 20kg suitcase!! Kaitlyn looks fabulous in her teams colours. I bet you all enjoyed the time together.
Talk to you before setup day!

Belated visit to this post - but goodness me! If I'd realised you were coming into my neck of the woods - I would have been able to escort you around the RG pottery - it's only a couple of km from my house!!!!
Glad you had a great time in Melbourne - including the footy!
