The First Farewells And A Mother Daughter Monday

Sunday Aug 7th –

Church bells ringing… not literally but either way we were going πŸ˜‹

We also went to Dr. Javas.
Lunch for me (and mom) was my favourite panini from there, the aloha chicken πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Nap time beckoned me, so I went and as usual it turned into an all afternoon, going into evening event πŸ˜‹

Later that evening, Nathin, Becca and the kids came over for a visit and to say their goodbyes to me since they would be gone when I left.
Thankfully goodbyes pre-leaving day never seem as hard but it still isn’t a pleasant thing to need doing…



Monday Aug 8th –



The last town day to finish up this and that before I left home to head back to Holland on the upcoming Thursday.

One very important part of that day, a massage😍
Mom had booked one but no one else could take it/wanted it so it fell to me to endure πŸ˜‹

Twos hours later I walked out slightly less awake than before and a fair bit less energized, it was wonderful 😁

We headed to a new restaurant in town called ‘The Rusty Owl’ and sat down to try some lunch after a recommendation from Mel 😊

(Yes mom, I stole your sign picture from Instagram 😏 😘 @diamondandwillow )

The steampunk decor kept our eyes busy, looking from here to there and back again, trying to take in all the little, well thought out detailsπŸ‘ŒπŸ»

It would be a fun place to sit and enjoy a coffee and (large) macaroon while drawing or writing😊

We both ended up getting potato bacon soup with garlic toast for our meals.                          

Once we were through with our meals and ready to get back to the days tasks, a coffee and two macarons were required to boost our motivation levels.

The food was tasty, the service good, decor unique and well put together.
The prices are a little on the higher side of the scale but really, would you rather pay for a cheap, unhealthy, overly greasy meal and be unsatisfied elsewhere or pay a little more and eat a good, medium size portion but leave feeling full and like you ate something with some nutritional values left in it? 😊
The choice is yours.

All in all, I’d go back again…perhaps in December when Mike and I return 😁

Some much needed items which I can’t find back in Holland were purchased to pack up.
Salt and vinegar chips and Got To Be hair mousse are two such examples 😏

The unlovely task of unpacking everything purchased was taken care of once we got home and then we had a few moments to relax before supper.

Which was burgers (topped with grilled pineapple for mom and I) πŸ”

All in all it was a good day spent together and we did get things accomplished πŸ˜πŸ‘ŒπŸ»πŸ’•
