If I’ve spoken to you in the last month you’ll know that I’ve hired a cleaner, which has actually been one of the best things I’ve ever done. Every second Friday while I’m at work, Christina comes to the house and makes it sparkle… there is nothing like coming home to a spotless house and realising Saturday morning that I don’t have to scrub the stove is incredible.
Now that we have an extra few hours on the weekend, we are taking the opportunity to explore Perth and all the new and exciting things it has to offer.
Ryan and I landed in Reykjavik after a fairly short red-eye flight from New York but because of the time difference of four hours, we managed to arrive really jet lagged and in desperate need of sleep (it was 6am in Reykjavik!). Still being way too early to check in, we dropped our bags at Snorris Guesthouse and went for an early morning walk around the small city – there was something special about wandering around a beautiful little town that was still asleep. I loved seeing the colourful houses with lace curtains… I couldn’t stop taking pictures of them!
August and September are beautiful months to visit York. Everywhere you turn, the yellow canola fields carpet the rolling hills and line the roads. Ryan and I took a trip up last weekend to help in my dad’s overgrown garden (we found a natural spring under his house!) so we took the opportunity to enjoy the golden fields and walk through the town admiring the vacant shops, which should most definitely be converted into coffee shops and art galleries.
