Away from the Barn

On Wednesday we decided Brenda probably needed to see a little bit more of Australia than the inside of the Barn!!. And what better place than a drive through a bit of country Victoria to Millrose.

The day was a tad cold!

20141002-145944.jpgJudy was teaching and it was lovely to briefly catch up with her, and for Judy to meet Brenda (it’s very funny introducing Brenda, ‘cos all we need to say is, this is Brenda – no surname required!!).

One of Judy’s students, Colleen, was sewing on this beautiful machine

After an initial fossick, we headed next door for lunch

  1. Please tell the weather to warm up!! I’m lounging in bed after a long lie, while Malcolm has his shower, catching up with bloggy friends. Singapore is as hot, sticky, crowded and wonderful as ever!!

    Oh, you lucky girl — I loved Millrose — what a fun little shop. It’s so fun for me to read your posts now that I’ve been there — I can actually relate! And that machine! I’m a die-hard Viking fan and that color is awesome — it’s a good thing I didn’t see it when I was there — it might have disappeared!!!
