Spring has sprung!

Happy first weekend in Spring everyone! Well, if you're in the Southern Hemisphere like I am :)

It has really been quite a beautiful week of weather leading up to the first few days of Spring, despite a few rainy days here and there. I'm just hoping it is here to stay! Weather makes such a huge difference to mood and morale and there are many a psychological study to back this up - I remember learning about it in University psyc many a time.

Anyway, my weekend was spent visiting Costco for a bit of a stockup on all the awesome bulk buy things they have there like 1kg+ of chocolate coated almonds! Yum yum.

I also took some time for lunch at Gazebo Wine Bar for some tasty snacks and enjoying a bit of the outdoors. It was a bit chilly though it was nice to get out and about.

Here are some terrible photos of some of the food we ate:

  Pate + Bread and Gourmet Veal & Chorizo Sausage Rolls

Squid (this was so tasty!) and Bubble & Squeak croquettes

I opened the newspaper this morning and was interested to find that Matt Kemp previously of Balzac and Montpelier fame has been hired by the Keystone group to take over dining/food at Gazebo! Can't wait to see what he gets up to. Love the vibe and area of Gazebo, just hate the parking there.

What did you get up to on the first weekend of Spring?
