Support Local Living

Are you fed up of large corporations taking over and everything looking the same? I know I am. This blog shares a year in the life of a local family, supporting local living and local businesses.

All quiet on the Western Front

on February 27, 2012

I’ve been a bit quiet on here recently, ok, I’ve been very quiet.

In all reality I’ve been flat-out, but don’t worry I’m keeping up my end of the bargain – supporting local businesses day in day out.

I even have Little Miss 2 so well-trained that she knows we go into the fruit and veg shop before going anywhere near a supermarket (and that is only if we really really have to).

This week I am making plans for a weekend alone with hubby. It is our 5 year wedding anniversary and my parents are taking the kids for a couple of nights. Rather than go away we have decided to stay here and spend our days exploring our local surroundings. There are so many tourist sites, places to go and things to do that we just never got round to doing. Now I actually get a chance to book it all in 🙂

Is there anything special we need to do or see over the weekend. Drop your suggestions in the comment box below.

    Have you thought about a Devonshire Tea at Ormiston House?
    Dinner at the Lighthouse Resturaunt at Cleveland Point?
    A little bit further afield, but a lovely spot to view Brissie’s Panorama is from Mt Gravatt Lookout (Shire Street off Logan Road). There’s a Coffee Shop up there too and it is run to train and encourage local indigenous youth in hospitality practises.
    Then there’s a pleasant walk on the Mangrove Boardwalk at Wynnum North – it leads to a bird hide for birdwatching enthusiasts (especially popular later in Winter as this is the destination for many migratory birds some from as far away as Siberia).
    Happy Anniversary!
    You could also just stay home and stay VERY local… to each other !!!!
