Girls Weekend Away....

Last weekend I went on a girls weekend with my 2 sisters, niece and 8 other girls to Moss Vale in the lovely Southern Highlands of NSW. It's just over 1 hours drive from where I live so its not too far to visit for even a day trip, so I am sure I will return for a day visit.
The "oldies" (as we were called) went down on the Friday.  First stop was Mittagong, where I bought this cute rusty rabbit to put in the garden, then it was on to Berrima. This is a lovely little town, I haven't been there for a few years but it is always good to visit.

This is a lovely old sandstone house on the main street which has been turned into a Restaurant.

Looking up the main street of Berrima, some older building are now shops.

Then it was on to Bowral for lunch...this is the main street of Bowral. There are some nice shops to look at here.

Then it was on to Moss Vale where we had rented a house for the weekend.  This is the  main street of Moss Vale.

Home Sweet Home....well for 2 nights anyway!

The house was so big, it had 6 bedrooms each with 2 king single beds

There were 3 bathrooms...this one had a clawfoot bath. 

The games room with billard table and a big range of other games including tennis rackets for the tennis court outside
The Living room.. 
The farmhouse style kitchen was my I was the cook for the weekend (my choice), I couldn't have been happier to work in this kitchen....

The fridge is behind the middle cupboard, good idea!

Friday nights dinner was Baked Pumpkin Risotto.
Sitting down for dinner...

Dessert was Sticky Date Pudding with Butterscotch Sauce....forgot to take a photo, everyone said it was yum!

Saturday we met up with the rest of the girls who are the "young ones", so we all headed back to Bowral to finish off the shops and then headed to Moss Vale Hotel for lunch and then hit the shops at Moss Vale.  We found Bernie's Diner, which is a 50's style diner so we decided to rest our feet and have an old fashioned malted tasted so good!
  Saturday nights dinner was a Baked Lamb Roast and the same dessert....forgot to take a photo, it was yum too!

This is all the girls (minus 2 who had to leave early).

A great weekend with a few lot of champagne and wine being had by us all with games and plenty of laughs, which made some of us have tears rolling down our faces!

Looking forward to the next one.

Enjoy your day!


  1. Hi Karen,
    Well I'm hurt that THIS KAREN wasn't on that little jaunt with all you beautiful ladies.
    How fun and the towns look so inviting.
    Look at those trees lining that street, like a canopy - how beautiful.
    Goodness the house could not have been more lovely...everything looked brand new. I too loved that kitchen. Oh my...a farmhouse sink!!! One of my WANTS!

    1. Haha, next time Karen I will invite you. I love the farmhouse sinks too. My grandparents had and original one in their house which is still there to this day!
