700 posts giveaway and Cooks Hill
After arriving at Newcastle airport, I headed straight to the Hunter Valley, spending Friday afternoon, Saturday and Saturday night there. First thing on Sunday morning I drove to Newcastle, intending on at least having a look around before flying home!
Since a friend had pointed me to the area, I stopped at Darby St, Cooks Hill, an inner city suburb. I had stuffed mushrooms for breakfast at 3 Monkeys, which was really tasty! The coffee (with an extra shot) was not strong enough, but a nice flavour. Service was sweet :)
High Tea with Mrs Woo and it was probably best for me that the shop isn't open on Sundays ;)
Blackbird Corner, which the lovely Jane of Kabwares suggested I visit as they stock her funky garden markers (the next pic shows the spoons and forks in their Blackbird Corner home).
Blue Star Elements and bought some gifts, some accessories for Sienna, had a long look around and they also let me use their toilet - always nice! There was a retro boutique called Ramjet that had some awesome men's tshirts and I also bought this dress as a special treat for myself... can't wait until it's boots and scarves weather to wear it. Today Kell and I went to Savers and I found a great, really wide, brown belt that will look fab with my new dress, happy days :)
