The (much needed) long weekend is here! And so we decided to get out of Melbourne for the day (genius plan, I know!) for some fresh air. So, we drove upto Daylesford and decided to wander around the Wombat Hill Gardens and grab a bite at the Cafe.
I had the Cottage Pie with salad (it came with a green salad but I swapped it for the Quinoa & pumpkin salad they had on display as it looked beautiful) and tomato chutney. Perfect meal for a wintery day.
Mr. Pre had the yummy beef roll with chips, salad and tomato chutney.
So, the air was fresher than I expected up there and the blunder I made was not carrying a warm enough jacket. Rookie mistake. The chivalrous Mr. Pre came to my rescue and like the hero of a mushy, romantic movie, took off his own hoodie just so I could be warm (and so that he wouldn't have to listen to anymore whinging about how cold I was). I, however, felt too guilty making him pay for my mistake and like the heroine of a movie yet to be made, took off the jacket and gave it back to him and continued to suffer in the cold with just a cardigan over my top (and continued to whinge about it). But we didn't stay outdoors for too long so it was fine. I kept it on for long enough to take an outfit photo, though. May have started a new trend here with the "Husband Hoodie" (sophisticated twist on the "Boyfriend Blazer").

For a little more warmth we went into this cozy bakery on Vincent St. to have another coffee accompanies buy a Vanilla Slice and Lamington to share...mmm...I want to go back. Soon hopefully and well equipped this time for the nippy weather.
