Our Christmas gift to each other was a waffle maker. In regular use of weekends, we have sampled almost every waffle variation. They are hard to find in Australia as waffles aren't really a thing here. This machine is so deluxe it has a timer setting called "a bit more".

Just before dawn on a weekday during the first week back to work in January, Scott and I drove up to the dockyards of Melbourne to collect my shipment of my things previously being stored in mom and dad's crawl space.
It was an adventure, and the dockies there made sure we were safe and the collection was easy.
We were rewarded by a spectacular sunrise over the city.
Scott and I have a tradition of "getting out of dodge" on the first weekend of our summer holidays. and this year (2016), we went to Daylesford, a really lovely little country town a couple of hours drive outside of Melbourne.
We had a cute little Air BnB cottage, just under a kilometre from the town centre, and we could walk to dinner and the shops while we were there.
The weather was fine, with some cool nights, and that was alright because we had a little wood burning stove at our place.

In November last year, we were happy to meet up with Trevor and Maureen for dinner one evening during their Aussie tour visiting friends in Melbourne and Adelaide.
We met for Dinner at Easey's, a restaurant and bar consisting of two railcars on top of a building.
The food, the company, and the graffiti were great.
