The Magic Pudding

Hubs and I have just returned from a few days at the Mountains and on our way up we stopped off  at the Norman Lindsay Gallery at Faulconbridge.


This was the home of the author of the Magic Pudding.  I have to confess that I have never read the book but  will endeavour to do so in the near future.   The pudding always seems to have a very angry expression on his face and I think that this is the turn-off for me.


Our next stop was for some bush walking - as one does in the Mountains.   Not much further to go to get to the top.


Most of the leaves have now dropped off the trees


However a few colourful ones still remain


Time to check into our accommodation for the next few nights


Our very comfy bed


And spacious lounge area


The temperature can drop very quickly in the Mountains and our maximum yesterday was 5.5 as can be seen on the temperature gauge in the car.


And the fog can settle very quickly also.   This was the view from our room mid-afternoon.


Somewhere out there  beyond the trees is a valley.   Not to be seen during our stay however we were nice and warm inside and rugged up when venturing out.

Back soon and in the meantime

Happy sewing all

Oh, where are you staying? Pity i didn't know you were going through, i could have met you for a coffee at the Norman Lindsay cafe. I don't live far away and I enjoy the gallery now and again, and the grounds are good for photography sessions.

Such a lovely place to visit. I agree about the angry face of the pudding but I did have the book as a child. Hope you have an electric blanket on the bed. I am feeling cold just looking at your pic LOL.
