We have enjoyed a magnificent Queens Birthday long weekend here in Australia and whilst I know Lizzy's birthday is in April I am still going to dedicate this post to an amazing woman who has inspired not only a nation, but a Commonwealth with her beauty, grace, humour and strength.
This is a gal that drove heavy vehicles during the war, strangled her own pheasants and had to make difficult decisions and yet still looked chic and stylish in divine frocks and to this day, still rocks a good hat.
And thanks to Liz I have had a fabulous long weekend with sleep-ins (huzzah!), watching my son play at half time during an AFL match (so proud!),
strolling around the stunning Southbank area of Melbourne,
enjoying family time at the Melbourne Aquarium (a whole post on that excursion to follow because there are soooo many happy snaps!) and a wander through the McClelland Sculpture Park.
That's a whole lotta pics isn't it?
Can you tell how much fun I have had this weekend?
How did you spend your weekend?
