camping in september

Last year was okay.  We went to Maryborough and the days were clear and crisp.  Not a lot to do in Maryborough … but the weather was fine.

This year however it has been the soggiest greyest and MOST AWFUL time to camp in Daylesford EVER (maybe … although it’s not snowing, and actually the last 12 hours have been okay … but there’s a huge storm on the way right?).

On the upside

  • The kids have still had loads of fun with their cousins – freezing cold tents, endless rain, mud and all
  • We had a great dinner at the Old Hepburn Hotel (parma night – my choice introduced me to be the joys of a schnitzel topped with fried onion, bacon, BBQ sauce and cheese!)
  • I didn’t have to cajole too much to get the kids to The Mill Market (some room to move around inside – and out of the elements – was appreciated for once).

Here are a few things I admired there …

1. $20 for this crocheted blanket.  I like the apple green and pink combo.  If only I knew someone with a new baby.


2.  Little blue drawers.  I love this colour (I think you know that).  And the drawers themselves might actually be useful.  Should I buy them?


3.  Either of these globes.  My grandpa had one when I was little and I loved looking at it.  These 2 are extra lovely.


4.  This fabric.  $50 for 2 metres is quite a lot, but it fits right in to my current interest in florals and green/blue.  I won’t buy it, just window shopping on this one.


5.  Old washing baskets.  These ones were v. expensive.  Which reminded me to take better care of the 5 I have at home.  I am prone to leaving them out in the elements by the line or filling them to overflowing with heavy crafty projects.


That’s it.  Actually there were more things that I liked, but my phone battery died (so annoying).

What I bought?  Obsessed with all things weather related I bought a hat.  It’s so soft and I love the big pompom.  It will be perfect for sleeping in in the freezing cold tent!


But today … Today we are going to the spa.  And it won’t matter what the weather is like there!
