Last weekend we went to visit Matt’s family on their farm.  It’s about 15 minutes from the lovely, eccentric little town of Daylesford.

Set in the hills (a nice change from the rest of this flat state) it has an old fashioned charm. Ironically it’s a progressive place, known as the gay capitol of Victoria. This means there are some awesome and eccentric people milling around, another welcome change from your typical Aussie-country-town.

Want to get your Tarot cards read or buy some new crystals?  Just use the GAY-TM to withdraw some cash (I regret not snapping a photo of that rainbow ATM in all it’s awesomeness). * Update: here it is! Here it is! Thanks Skye*

Ask me why I’ve only been to D-ford like three times?  I can’t tell you.

For our latest visit with the folks I suggested to Matt that we drop Lavinia with her grandparents so he and I could have a lunch date alone. I really hope we can make it a regular thing. Lavinia gets some alone time with her Nana and Papa and Mommy and Daddy get a break. Win-win.

We also stumbled upon a new-ish American restaurant called The Galley Diner where they serve Anchor Steam (one of my fav beers of all time) too bad they were all out.  Yet another reason to head back.
