This week I had a chance to take a half day off of work and watch Little Miss A perform with her kinder at Abbotsford Convent, and the weather was a glorious Autumn day.
Abbotsford Convent is an amazing public space situated on the Yarra River, close to the centre of Melbourne.
Now made up of artists studios, a school and cafe's, art gallery and function rooms, it was built between 1900 - 1903 and its original purpose as a convent is still obvious.
The grounds are equally as beautiful. Thankfully they wrapped up filming an Ethan Hawke film by the time I went for a wonder, no I didn't see Mr Hawke, I don't know if I would recognize him? How long has it been since he's been in a decent film?
The flowers were in full bloom and the leaves so, so green and healthy.
After a long, hot summer, seeing green lush foliage is amazing.
I tried to do my best 60's fashion pose (ha ha ha) with workmen just around the corner I did a quick timer job and ran off and up the hill.
And my shoes got very wet - must remember to scotchguard my shoes again before the wetter weather.
Then I spent the last hour or so (before I picked up Little Miss A from kinder) doing a spot of shopping. I didn't purchase this turban and I'm a bit sad I didn't but I did find a brown felt cloche that I would get more wear out of.
It was a relaxing afternoon and so lucky the weather was an amazing, crisp Autumn day.
Here's to more.
