Wine Country and lots of rain

Oh how I love the country but most of all how I love wine country. So hubbies second cousin’s son, who lives in Margaret River, had his first birthday so we decided to go down for a visit and a mini break for us three.
We left last Friday and had one day of a bit if sun and the rest of the four days we stayed down south it rained and rained and it rained some more. We got tickets to see Eskimo Joe live from my brother in law who had do cancel his trip down south. That was a great kids free night of dancing and very good wine in a cosy pub.

After that night it just did not stop raining, good thing I took my sewing machine and another knitting project that I am working on with down south. Managed to finish the stripy boarder of my quilt and also work on how to add the sleeves into Luke’s knitted cardigan. My husband was going up the walls with boredom and Luke too. But at least hubby got a chance to spend some time with his dad who is battling cancer.

We managed just to go and do some fun stuff the day before we left because the rain eased a bit. We had a great lunch in this small cottage in the middle of the forest and there I had the best date pudding of my life. We also managed to visit the silk farm and the reptile park which were indoors. Also we managed to squeeze in the chocolate factory, which was Luke’s favourite part of the day. Got some amazing cocoa powder there for baking.

We headed back home on Wednesday and brought the awful rain with us back to Perth. We had finally a bit if sun this afternoon, we headed to the park with Ned the dog so we all could soak up the sun for a little while. The rain is back while I write this and according to the weather news it’s here to stay another week!!! Hope u guys enjoy the pictures and hope that where ever you are it’s sunny and warm.
