I’m sure a lot of you have realised that I have been absent from your blogs as well as mine!! Reason being is that real life has been pretty full on with lots of things happening in my private life – good and bad. Have I missed your posts and seeing what your all up to? Hell yes! Lol It’s an addiction that had to take a back seat for a while. 🙂
Trying to keep up with blogging when you’re life gets a bit hectic… It can get really hard. I follow many blogs and am therefore constantly reading at home, out on my phone and so on… So, when I get busy and stop? I’m waaaayyyy behind and have to skip some of your posts.
So where have I been this last week?
Well, in a place called Mount Beauty with a friend. And ohhhh what a beautiful place it was.
It was about a 5 hour drive from Melbourne airport. In winter, when the mountains are full of skiers and snow, I’m sure it would be breathtaking. Because it already was, without all of that! The roads up the mountains are pretty scary though, but well worth the view. When you feel low and you see nature at it’s best it just puts life back into perspective. We stress over so many things and life can get you down at times. But then there’s that view and everything negative you felt runs from your blood as if you’ve been giving a blood transfusion. Healthy pure clean fresh blood, one that makes you feel glad to be alive.
Our world is beautiful and it’s the simple, free things in life that make us happy and bring us down to Earth. Fresh air is like breathing for the first time, you close your eyes and feel the cool gentle breeze run through you like a cleansing of your soul. You open your eyes and everything around you is a natural wonder and your in awe of what nature has given us. This is our world… All of ours, and it’s free for the taking, so why not see and appreciate as much of it as we can and feel rejuvenated, right? 🙂
I walked on a golf course that looked soooo beautiful and green so I could get photos of the kangaroos for you all to see (the non Aussies, of course – lol We see plenty, right?!). But low and behold, part of it was slushy and slightly muddy… yet I didn’t realise this until I was in the thick of it! YIKES!! Me, girly old me, trying not to fall down and get my shoes dirty!! Haha so please like the kangaroos and the effort to take the photos. LMAO I can’t stop laughing and so would have you if you had seen me! I looked pathetic trying to dodge the slushy bits 🙂
Oh and yes the rain? This particular day I didn’t see it coming from the mountains and before I knew it my friend and I were soaked. I have to laugh as I haven’t walked/jogged in rain since school. When I wanted to have a new pair shoes, I walked in the puddles to ruin them!! Lol BTW: I didn’t get new shoes, I was made to wear them to school wet! Lol Makes me recognise how much our parents taught us to appreciate what we had!! 🙂
On the way back to Melbourne we went to a town called Bright. What a beautiful little town! It reminded me of a town out of Perth called Dunsborough. I soooo love little country towns and their gift shops they always have a huge variety of bits and bobs.
Then we went through Glenrowan… Ned Kelly country, where he did his last stand. Follow the link if you haven’t heard of our famous Ned Kelly Gang.
Then finally back to Melbourne where I got to visit the crown Casino again!! Lol I SO love the Crown Casino in Melbourne, if you ever go to Melbourne it’s a must visit!
I didn’t get a chance to visit our Mumsy from our blogging family as the trip was a last minute decision. But Mumsy when I do? I promise we will hold the bar up at the Crown and dance until our feet ache!! LMAO Love you, Mumsy!
To all my blog family I hope your world is shining! I’ve really missed you all and glad to be back.
So tell me, does fresh air invigorate you too?
Hugs to you all, Paula xxxxx
