(yumm The kitchen smells of freshly baked rusks, baked in a woodstove in the old kitchen. Feels like Nana's kitchen, smells of aniseed.)
Hmmmmm die beskuit ruik lekker. 'n Ou koolstoof in die kombuis sou nou vandag gewerk het! Dit voel soos my Ouma se kombuis, ek ruik net Anys. "My nooi is in 'n Nartjie, My ouma is in Kaneel, Daar is iemand in Anys. Daar 'n vrou in elke geur!"borrowed from Nilo's FB.
Our little trip to Gippsland, was all about buying just such a woodstove, a rayburn not very big but boy it heavy. And on the way we stopped off at so many cute little spots you would not believe. Tilba Tilba is very much like PilgramsRus in South Africa, cute little shops where you can have tea and scones or what ever you like, look at antiques, a real lolly shop with rows of glass jars full of bright lollies. A cheese factory with way more than cheese inside. It's really the sort of place you would bring your girl friends to and make a day outing off it. Most men get dragged (by their hair)around by their wives while the kids suck on a huge flat spiral lolly getting their whole face full of sticky stuff, and grandma has to clean the mess.
Then there is the nursery!! and old wares shop and cafe, Now here I feel most comfy.Just a sneak view into the garden which promises to be a delight come spring, this alone is going to be worth a return visit. Here I am sure the fairies live, you just have to go quietly down the stepping stone path.
I invite you to come with us come springtime and visit.
