One of my dear friends moved to Queensland a year or two ago. She used to live in the next suburb over. That was quite a loss. My other friend has lived interstate for many years now, so we've adapted to the distance thing. But getting the three of us together is rare and very special.
What did we do?
Not much, to be honest.
|Even my feet got to relax.|
It seems that in any girls' gathering I'm involved in, I somehow end up adopting the role of bartender. I don't know why that would possibly be. ;) But I perfected two new drinks this trip. One, a refreshingly icy cocktail I'm definitely going to be making more of this summer. Mix roughly the same amounts of vodka (or gin), lime juice and elderflower cordial in a glass over ice. Top up with soda water. Drink. Yum!
Lest you begin to think it was a total booze fest, I also made a wonderful non-alcoholic fruit punch.
|I can't be held responsible if someone "accidentally" tipped a little|
gin into it while I wasn't looking, can I?
And, being Bundaberg, we of course had to visit its most famous export.
|I think I'm meant to be tickling his tummy. That's|
what polar bears like, isn't it?
Now, the hardest part following a week of fun like this is getting back into the swing of things! Luckily Melbourne has decided to put on some warm weather, so I'm not having too much trouble adjusting. Although my out-of-control "to do" list might tell a different story!
