Lovedale Long Lunch

“You can’t go in there – they’re the disabled toilets.” Apart from the poor grammar, there are lots of arguments about whether “disabled” toilets are for disabled people only, or whether they’re toilets that anybody – including those in a wheelchair – can access. But there was no discussion at the Lovedale Long Lunch, and …

When does a band become a tribute band?

When does a band become a cover band? I ask this because I had another weekend away with the girls at a Day on the Green concert. It was a fabulous weekend – beautiful accommodation (Maple Cottage at Berrima), great company and brilliant Aussie rock bands. And of course our obligatory gourmet picnic. Except … …

A weekend with The Outdoorsy One

The Outdoorsy One came down to stay for the weekend. She was missing her mum and wanted to hang out. So we did. Saturday was a beautiful day. We got up and sat in the sun having breakfast. I made spiced ricotta, raspberry and hazelnut muffins, which we had with real coffee and champagne (well …

High tea, champagne, jewelry and a didgeridoo

The Outdoorsy One and I went to high tea today at the Museum of Sydney. It’s been a while since we’ve had a Sunday lunch – somehow life seems to keep getting in the way. Too often, after working all week then doing housework on Saturday, by Sunday I just want to relax and maybe …

Lovedale Long Lunch – Sunday lunch project with Stormtroopers

I had lunch with Luke Skywalker and Chewbacca. How many people can say that on a Sunday? Unfortunately, Harrison Ford was absent. We missed the Lovedale Long Lunch on Saturday, so Sunday we made sure that today we were there on time. We got up this morning, had breakfast (over a number of shifts), then …

To lunch or not to lunch at Lovedale

The Lovedale Long Lunch. A marketer’s dream. A leisurely stroll (well … bus trip) from one winery to another, having gourmet meals matched with fabulous wines. At least that’s the theory. We arrived here yesterday. Some of us from Sydney, some from Canberra. Those of us from Sydney arrived first. We checked into our accommodation …

Rabbit fur, but rabbit stew off the menu

Autumn is a great time to visit the southern highlands of NSW. Well, if you like autumn colours and don’t mind cold.  I hate cold, but I love the colours, and they make great photographs. And it didn’t hurt that there was a market on. So Sunday lunch this week was at Robertson. The Green …

Gourmet food and revhead culture meet in Bathurst

During the week I went to Bathurst for work. In case you don’t know, for one long weekend every year Bathurst is home to Australia’s most famous race. The Bathurst 1,000. This is an institution among rev-heads and teenage boys in Australia. Holdens –v- Fords, driving round and round Mount Panorama (the same one that …

Sunday lunch Scarborough Hotel

One of those perfect autumn Sundays – still and warm with a blue, blue sky. Obviously Sunday lunch had to be somewhere outdoors. When Doc finally surfaced late morning he looked at me and said “it’s a perfect day for a ride” as if a) we had a motor bike and b) he could ride …

Meat pies & tomato sauce and bubbly in plastic cups! I had a great time.

Aah, Sunday lunch. Good food, good company, good wine. Conversation, wit, comedy, relaxation. It’s a great tradition. But not one we followed last Sunday.
