Oh i love Avoca...

There is a recently new cafe in Avoca Handweavers called The Fernhouse... Myself and dear C have been too many times to count, always going for the same thing - the mushrooms on toast which are delectable! Its such a lovely environment, so peaceful even when full to the brim... the decor is really different, hotchpotch of different tables and chairs, huge chandeliers hung with cutlery and ribbons, big wooden windows with views of the wood, lovely touches here and there...
So this morning myself and Ingrid (recently in receipt of a new baby girl) headed off with our "under the armers" for some coffee and a bite, and the obligatory browse which usually ends with an "i never knew i needed it but i do" purchase!It was a fine morning, after a nights raining, so the ferns and trees were wide awake and glistening and sitting by the huge windows was therapy indeed.
The two babies slept for most of it, although Joe did stay awake long enough to pick the raisins out of a scone, and we had a great catch up session! And after a browse in through the wares and sections we headed back again for another coffee and a slice of their sumptuous cheescake!
The food as always was beautifully presented, grandmother helpings, and very tasty! The service is laid back (sometimes slow but who cares) and friendly and the surroundings are unmatched... just the perfect way to spend a leisurely morning!

Sounds nice. You are lucky your little ones sleep. Mine is a handful at all time. Never still for a minute! He is the busiest kid I have ever seen.

I find it interesting in your post and comments how you use some different lingo and phrases than we do. It is fun, cute and entertaining. I like the differences the world offers.

Nice. I love nap time. But I tend to have to pick up the house or work.
