A week in Brogo!

Well today was my first day back at work after my lovely week off. Jeremy and i went down to a little known town called Brogo - it's an exaggeration calling it a town actually. There's no town center! Not even a corner shop. Anyway, it's about 20 minutes from Bega. The place we stayed at was Rock Lily Cottages, which was a lovely little cottage on a property. We took our puppies along with us, and they had a lovely time too - especially sniffing around in the backyard and going for walks on the property.

So we drove down on Monday - we stopped in Mogo for a coffee in the afternoon, and i stumbled across Amanda's of Mogo - a fabulous scrapbook/stamping/art/craft store. I spent ages in there and i just couldn't believe how much amazing stuff they had!!

Tuesday we went for a lovely walk around the property with the puppies - they just loved that. In the afternoon we went for a drive down to Merimbula, which was a nice little town. We had a coffee there and a short look around the shops.

Here's the view from the backyard in the morning - so beautiful!

Wednesday we had a quiet day at the cottage since the weather was a bit ordinary. I did a bit of scrapping and Jeremy watched some DVD's.

Thursday we went to Tathra and took the puppies to an off-leash beach. Jeremy and i got fish and chips for lunch and the puppies wore themselves out while we ate. Then we went for a lovely walk before we went back. Here's some photos from the beach:

While we were at the cottage, the puppies were always at the door wanting to go out - they're use to having a doggie-door at home where they can come and go as they please. They looked so cute standing at the door:

Another great thing about the cottage was the fireplace. The puppies would lie in front of it at night - it kept them so warm!! Most afternoons we would put it on at about 3, as it was so cold down there!! It was lovely to keep us warm all night too!!

Back to reality now though. I've only got 7 weeks left at work before i go off on maternity leave though, so that's pretty exciting. I'm also off on the Scrapboutique Winter Retreat this weekend with my mum and all the lovely boutique babes. It's at Noonaweena resort - should be lovely!!
