Time with special friends are always the best and last week my dear and best friend of over 30 years Shannon and I headed out for dinner to my most favourite Vietnamese restaurant I've been going to for years, Can Tho
at Runaway Bay, which has had a new fit out. The restaurant now has this funky old world vintage industrial Vietnamese feel to it, and the food is as spectacular as ever. We had such a good time and it was just what I needed to have..... some kid free time.'
Dinner with Shannon came at the end of a very long day, as I had spent the day on a road trip out towards Ipswich after being invited by Renee of Née Say
to her grandparents home who are moving. Renee's grandmother has lived in the same home for 80 years, and she has kept loads of amazing things. I came home with even more amazing vintage children's books and comics from the 1960's amongst other things.
This past week has also seen us have some of the hottest November days here in nearly 50 years. Time outside has been limited because of the intense heat (40 degrees) but we've made the most of gardening, playing, water fights and general faffing about both indoors and out and polishing off the rest of my Lemonade, Pear and Ginger Ice-Blocks (recipe coming this week).
That's my week in retrospect a pretty joyous one filled with the most important things in my world, time and love with friends and family,......oh and of course the treasure hunting,
