Future Plans

Hi everyone - Happy Halloween for tonight and also tomorrow for my friends on the other side of the earth.

I have had a great weekend :) Friday night I went to the final Melbourne "Powderfinger" concert (for ever). It was a pretty good concert but I don't like the venue it was at. For my Melbourne readers it was at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. For my non Melbourne it is an outdoor venue with some seats, but the majority of fans are on a grass hill. Trouble with concerts there no matter where you are situated you can never get a good view of the band. But still, I did enjoy the concert because they are a great band and I love their music.

The rest of the weekend I have spent back in Daylesford. Daylesford hasn't always been, but is now a pretty trendy little country town which is well known for it's great restaurants and peaceful laid back feel. It is in the heart of what is called "Spa Country" as there are loads of mineral springs and places where you can have spa treatments in the area. The reason I have been going up there is because I have two wonderful friends - Tim & Brian - who own and run a beautiful B&B called "Old Chilli B&B. Now here's my exciting news - next year they are looking at travelling overseas for 12months and have asked me to manage the B&B for 12 months from May. Of course I have jumped at the chance and I am really excited about my adventure. So from May 2011, I will blogging about "My Year in Daylesford". It will be interesting to see how I go living in a country town as I am a city girl, but it sure does feel good when I am there - it is so nice and quiet - no traffic noise.

  1. Wow, for a full year? I hope that someplace within that year that you get some sort of time off. A B&B can be 'round the clock work. It is beautiful, it looks extremely peaceful and I can't even imagine the serenity there. You are such a kind soul Davine, doing this for your dear friends!

    I hope that you had a Happy Halloween, do you get kids coming around trick or treating there as well? Have a fantastic day!

  2. Wow, wow, wow!!! What an exciting year you'll have at the B&B. I'm a little jealous :-)
    Cheers, jj
