Review of Flying Fox Cafe, Mona Vale

October 22, 2014

The Flying Fox Café opened in March 2006 and has quickly become one of the most popular destinations. Sydney magazine recently voted Winnererremy Bay as the “best park in Sydney” and their food is AWESOME!

The café has a sail roof and clear screens that open fully on three sides to take advantage of the great views to the Bay. There’s seating for 80 undercover and space for at least 30 more in the landscaped garden area at the front of the café.

It’s a modern Australian menu with a relaxed atmosphere and they pride themselves on being VERY family friendly. With the addition of the great park next door they have a dedicated kids menu, toys, activities and plenty of highchairs.

Trunki review

October 16, 2014


With our USA trip fast approaching it was a battle to try and find a suitable bag for Luca’s stuff for the long haul flight. Backpack or wheely bag? Shared nappy bag or large carry-on? I must have read every travel tip forum to try and make the right decision.

By pure luck we came across a Trunki at our local David Jones store – we saw Luca sitting on one and wheeling up and down the aisle – little did we know that this little scootery thing was a suitcase…

We weren’t prepared to pay the $80 price for one of them but after less than an hour looking online for deals we found one for $30 (why was it so cheap? Because it’s London Olympics stock with just a union jack…but who really cares, right? Its still a lot of fun!)

The real test will happen when we fly – but just packing it now, I already know how great its going to be.

Here’s our review….

Crochet Gem

October 14, 2014

Nicola had outgrown the winter hats we bought for her and I didn’t want to spend any money buying a replacement for our US trip in two weeks time (she’ll be 18 months by the time winter rolls in again).

So I made one…

The first place I look for patterns believe it or not, is YouTube. I love following along with the instructions and if it’s a good channel they’ll have a printable version in a link somewhere.

This adorable little bonnet was a really quick and easy patten – the video instructions were average though..especially when it came to the back…so follow closely to the print-out.

It’s very rough..done while exhausted..but it will do its job.
