Time goes slow when your waiting for something, (like the end of winter) especially if you feel the cold. The great thing about Winter is it forces us to slow and rest our bodies, yes its ok to lounge around and read by the fire BUT I get a little restless after awhile and want to do something or I need a change of scenery.
My dear husband knows me so well (to well) and planned a short Getaway to one of our favorite destinations along the coast.
Lorne is a little seaside village on The Great Ocean Road in Victoria and only about a 2 ½ hour drive from our home.
The coastal road was built at the end of the 1st world war to provide jobs for return serviceman and as a remembrance to those who didn't return.
Fresh Sea Air
Fish & Chips
A Little Sunshine
And great company! My husband really does make Winter nice and cosy, we always have a store of firewood stacked close to the back door, he gets up first thing in the morning and gets the house warm.
Always quick to put the kettle on for a pot of tea.
He has just brought himself a Pizza Oven so Sunday nights are now his cooking night !!! and that's the best ever Winter Warming present any woman could ask for!!!!!!!!
