Whirlwind Melbourne Weekend

We may not have Thanksgiving, We may not have Presidents Day but Hallelujah, we have an Easter long weekend!

12.5- The number of hours spent in total pre flight, in flight, post flight.

5- The number of hours spent waiting for or on public transport in the timespan of 4 days (damn Holiday timetabling and traffic!)

5- Out of 7 meals eaten out of containers or in a restaurant

0- My current balance after buying a few work necessities and paying for said transport and meals out Priceless- A temporary cure for homesickness. That, my friends, makes it all Marvelous.

Well, for a Whirlwind Melbourne Weekend!

Marvelous is- Surprising my mum! I mentioned a week ago how this was my intention and My awesome mate Bec (see below) was kind enough to pick me up from the airport so I could follow through with it. Can we say success?


Marvelous is- Realising just how quickly a city can change. In a mere three months of not being here, so much has changed. This shopping complex was half finished and now….thriving.


Marvelous is- Catching up with two of my favourite people. Andria and Bec, two of my oldest friends were the rare few still in town over the holiday period. Although I didn’t get to spend nearly as much time with each of them, just seeing them briefly was enough to make it all worth it.


Marvelous is- Food made with love. Yes, friends. Mum made me saffron chicken and damn it was good. As are the two containers of leftovers I brought with me to Sydney. Not just that….I MAY have ninja’d the recipe from her.


Marvelous is- Chocolate not in egg form…and on sale during the Easter period. This should last me a solid week- as long as work isn’t hectic. If that’s the case, let’s give it 3 days. I can already envision them mixed into waffles. Well, these waffles.


Marvelous is- Having some consistent female content on here- After some feedback and requests, my sister whom has been featured on occasion, will be making a guest appearance on a more regular basis. Details to come!



This is the final instalment of the themed ‘Spill it, Sundays’- As of next Monday, a guest blogger will be putting forth a set of Questions for a fun, survey like post!

Spill it, Sundays #21- The Family Edition

Why can't every weekend be a long weekend? Can it be Easter every weekend? So I'm posting this from my home city of Melbourne! It's been a whirlwind trip so far but damn, it's good to be home. Let's gloss over the fact that I have to be up at 4.30am … [Continue reading]

Sea Salt Dark Chocolate Waffles

It usually takes me five attempts at a recipe to perfect it. The Anzac biscuit pancakes? Five attempts. The sweet potato and cheddar pancakes? Five attempts. The Grain Free Cheddar and Garlic waffles? Five attempts. This waffle recipe was no … [Continue reading]

Peanut butter loss and fig custard fail.

Melbourne. One more day until we are reunited. This has thankfully been a short week at work, but ironically, super busy. As great as being busy has been, I am damn exhausted! I'm looking forward to hopefully be sleeping in Saturday. Let's not … [Continue reading]

Butter me up. Buttercup.

Butter. Say it. Butter. Butter is something I use liberally on a consistent basis. Whether it be subbing it in for oil in frying, lathering my pancakes with it or using it in baking- I'm a fan of this source of fat. However I have one major caveat … [Continue reading]
