This is a true story.
Yesterday I received an email from the administrators of the Black & White Spider Awards competition which said this:
"Your Certificate of Achievement from the 11th Annual Black & White Spider Awards has been packed, stamped and mailed off to you! I would like to offer you a free entry to this year's awards as thanks for your patience with the delay in printing and receiving your certificate."
I thought that was very nice of them, but as I didn't enter this competition, I figured I should let them know they've obviously got me confused with someone else. I was just about to send a reply, when something made me think "hmm...maybe I should check if I entered, before responding".
Good thing I did, because it turns out that I have the memory of a carrot. I had entered one photograph in one category and it won a nomination place. Who would have thought, eh?
A girls weekend away on the Bellarine Peninsula: food, wine, drives and walks, games, sleep… rinse and repeat. One of our jaunts found us at Point Lonsdale at the very tip of the Bellarine. It’s one of the heads that form the entrance to Port Phillip Bay, the other being Point Nepean.
We had a relaxing lunch at Bellarine Estate where we sat outside listening to some tunes, partaking of beverages and food and generally enjoying the ambience of the vineyard.
