A sneak peek at Southern Ocean Lodge

I’ve been burning the midnight oil this week working on my blog redesign* (yay!) as well as new client work.

When life gets busy my house starts to fall apart – I can’t even see my kitchen benches right now. I could’ve hugged my sister in law the other day when she joked that her house always looks like it’s been robbed: if you’re a working parent of small kids your home is always teetering on the brink of chaos. Unless you have live-in help, that is, in which case I might have to move in with you.

My mother overheard us talking and told us that her home was never messy when my brother and I were small. However, she also told me that my brother and I never had sleep problems as babies, either — “we just drove you around in the car until you fell asleep” — so I’m not sure we can really trust what she says.

Anyway, the point of this rather indulgent spiel is that I’d hoped to have a new recipe post up today but it just didn’t happen because I had to occasionally, you know, sleep. Without anyone driving me around until I fell asleep, no less.

So here are a few photos from my recent visit to the Southern Ocean Lodge on Kangaroo Island instead. I will be blogging my visit in detail later on and you won’t want to miss that because it is really quite a special place. Plus, I have some great photos of a seal rolling playfully around on the beach. It’s way cuter than it sounds – I’ve never met a more charismatic and witty seal.

Have a great week.

*My new site design will be up early September.
