Bendigo

We needed a day out of town after having cancelled our winter holiday. A friend mentioned to me that she was just in Bendigo for the Mary Quant exhibit. “No way!”, I said – I had literally just watched a show called Secrets of the Museum about the V&A preparing for this exhibit just a…

Me and Miss C spent the day at Arthur’s Seat in the Mornington Peninsula this week. A friend of ours had a painting on display in an art gallery near to Mornington and she asked me to collect it for her which is what inspired our outing. After retrieving said art work, we drove to…
