Wow! I can’t wait until next year when ACT and I visit my family and friends in Australia. If only to stay in one of Andre’s Mews, in Melbourne.
A boutique hotel-apartment-mews in (my old neighborhood) Melbourne’s Richmond, Andre’s Mews not only looks lush, but has a wonderful story behind it’s existence. A few handfuls of individually designed apartments, built by the owner’s daughter over 8 years to fulfill his dream. It’s really worth checking out their ‘About Us’ page and reading the full story. Full of love and character, this place is like something I’d love to create some day.
I haven’t written here for a while. Much of the summer I’ve been away on holiday, plus I’ve changed jobs (the 9-6ish kind that pays the bills), moved house, started dogsitting little miss Winnie (the pug), AND am about to move my lovely fella into the house too – not 100% about that last bit as he sits beside me singing as I write – !!!
One of the most pleasurable parts of the above is the furnishing of our lovely new home – on my meager (but thankfully existent) public service wage!
