Time for some snap shots again 😀
No pretty architecture this time unfortunately because I didn’t really go anywhere… at all. In fact I haven’t left the house since Saturday because James caught the flu that my Mum had when she was here so he’s been bed-ridden for the last week. We were quite worried that he was relapsing into glandular fever again which would have been terrible!
So here are some more pictures from before he was ill!
When James‘ parents visited they took us out to the Mitre Tavern which is a steakhouse near our place.
The guy from some tv show called “Ghost Hunters Australia” was filming right above our table! How exciting!! We asked the waiter about it (who was really nice and super helpful btw) and he said that the place is haunted by a woman who hung herself there. Apparently all the staff are scared of her! :O
Luckly she wasn’t haunting the scallops I had… they were delicious 😉
The day that my Mum and I actually got to leave the house we pretty much just went to a whole lot of chocolate stores. You can see where my addiction comes from! The first on the list was Theobroma.
She got me the *best* thing anyone has ever bought me… a self heating mug!! You put a little candle in the base and it keeps your drink warm! I like to drink my tea slowly so this is PERFECT for me! I can’t tell you how awesome it is, I can drink the same cup for hours and it’s still steaming hot to the last sip. LOVE IT.
While we were making our way to the next chocolate place we bumped into a charity selling cute piggy merchandise to support families with a sick child. You can visit their website and donate here.
My Mum and I bought 2 pens and a piggy bank.
The pen is fully of liquid with glitter and two little piggies in it! SO CUTE!
After that we visited Haigh’s which is a famous chocolate store.
They had some delicious taste testers there! We got some chocolate berry balls and this little suitcase tin full of chocolate freckles. How adorable is the suitcase?? It’s the perfect size to keep my make up in my bag! The freckles inside are the best I’ve ever had too.
Lastly we visited the Face Shop. I normally don’t like to go into the one in the CBD because the staff have been very unfriendly in the past but this time I met the owner and she is just so lovely! I will definitely go back next time I see her in there.
Our combined haul! I’m really looking forward to trying out some of those masks, my skin could really use it right now >_<
The last thing we did before she went home was visit a tiny little Japanese lunch place I’ve been wanting to do to for aaaages called Don Bay. According to James it has 100% positive reviews so we have been looking for an excuse to be able to try it.
It’s absolutely tiny! There were 3 chefs in that tiny space :O
Me with the very important number.
I had the unatama bento. I’ve never had eel before but I really didn’t like this version of it. Everything else in the bento was delicious though.
Mum had the lunch box and it was massive. I tried it all too and it was super yummy.
James had katsu curry and it was delicious too! The wait was around 10min and it was completely worth it. Every thing (other than the eel) was delicious and really well priced too considering the volume of food.
VERDICT: Super yummy and I’m going to go again as soon as I can find another excuse!
Lastly a bonus shot of James enjoying his croissant at our favorite bakery.
I also got some really lovely packages in the mail this week too but the photos are still on my camera so you’ll have to wait until next time ^_^
What have you all been up to this week?
