Exciting New Venture Announcement!

Something else exciting that I’ve been planning is starting to come together, and I’m very excited to give you a sneak peek of what’s coming!

I’m teaming up with my good friend Michelle from One Early Bird to offer Weekend Craft Getaways at Marita’s Place!!

Details will be finalised very soon, but the first opportunity for people to be part of these will be either the second or third weekend in September and include the following:

  • Small groups, with a maximum of 8 guests
  • 9hrs tuition in some amazing and fun craft activities led by the incredibly talented Michelle Collins – suitable for the novice or expert
  • All materials for the craft
  • 2 nights comfortable accommodation, with double, single, twin or dormitory options
  • Fabulous meals from supper on the Friday evening to afternoon tea on the Sunday afternoon….gluten free, dairy free, vegan or any other dietary need catered for, but definitely all delicious!
  • Serenity, spectacular views, and scenic beauty of Marita’s Place
  • Special Introductory All-Inclusive price offers! Only $330 per person, or $280 each if 2 people book together!! (slight extra for single room option)
  • Optional extras can include: walking trails, meditation, Qi Gong, AromaTouch, and more!

So if you think you and/or a friend deserve/s a relaxing weekend break that  brings a sense of achievement and peace then stay tuned! Bookings will open on the 10th of August, but we are now taking questions, suggestions and expressions of interest…..Watch this space for final itinerary!

Catch up

Well I’ve had a break of a few months from writing here, so easy to get sidetracked with life really, and so many lovely things happening….

I went on a wonderful 7,000km road trip with some great girlfriends up to Australia’s Red Centre and back – camping and backpacker lodges mostly.

Fantastic trip, but no matter how beautiful the country is up there, and so different from where I live, it’s always nice to return home. Even though home over the past few weeks has been quite cold! We are well and truly in Winter.

Pleased to say that the house and cottage are lovely and warm though, split system heating to all the rooms, plus a gas fire in the lounge to stand in front of when I come in from the cold.

The exciting news that’s keeping me busy is that my eldest son has decided to have his wedding at Marita’s Place! So much gardening needing to be undertaken to have it looking at its best for October!

New flooring has been purchased for the cottage, now I just need to get it laid at a time between visitors, and then I’ll post some photos. đŸ™‚
