Melbourne really knows how to welcome back a gal. Brisbane was great and all, but Melbourne truly has my heart. On Monday when I got back it was all blue skies and 28 degrees and I met up with the hubby for a picnic dinner.
Tuesday didn’t disappoint either. Some morning work followed by a second breakfast and our weekly Klaus and Fritz editorial meeting.
Who said one breakfast is enough?
It was too warm for a regular chai latte so I got one on ice instead.
My second breakfast company.
After brekkie I headed into the city and worked for a few hours. For some reason I haven’t been at my office for quite some time, and I need to get back into my routine. At 5 sharp I packed up my stuff and headed downstairs to meet up this fabulous lady.
We made our way to Cookie for some cocktails and food.
I hate whisky but love whisky cocktails, so that’s what I opted for.
The menu had too many items that sounded far too nice. It wasn’t all that easy to pick.
DON’T LOOK AT ME!
Ange went for some fancy salad…
…and I was a wee bit boring and had a tofu pad thai. Bah, who cares, it was bloody awesome. Without blood that is.
My nail polish matched the napkins PERFECTLY. I was a bit ecstatic.
We were supposed to go to an art opening of some sorts after dinner, but we headed the wrong way and missed it. We didn’t worry too much and made our way to Neapoli, just off Bourke street, instead.
We had some wine and a banana soufflé which was absolutely divine.
Then we biked home, trying to keep up some sort of conversation while biking ahead/behind of each other down St Kilda Road. We might have come across like mad women to the people around us, but hey, I suppose that’s just us.
Days like this just makes me swoon over Melbs more. I just hope the heat can come back to stay soon. Because even though Monday and Tuesday were great, Wednesday and Thursday surely weren’t….
