The other weekend I went to Mudgee with a girlfriend. We were desperate for some down time and by that away from comittments and family.
The destination wasn’t that important the only important aspect to our weekend was RELAXATION!
We arrived to our hotel around dinner time Friday night as we left after work. It was a bit of a drive but a fun adventure. Once checked into our hotel my girlfriend and I attempted to have dinner at the resturant but that was not to be as they had hit their limit for diners due to covid restrictions. It was suggested we have room service instead and after a big day, a car trip that was rather a good idea.
Our room was clean and tidy, and the beds are super comfortable. It was a little older but nothing horrible, we stayed two nights and it suited our needs and was just right. Perfect place for a getaway or a stop over with the family if you are travelling.
My friend booked us into a wine tour for our Saturday and I must say after we got back to our hotel we were rather buggered from all the tasting we had done. A lie down and rest was in order.
We were so exhausted from visiting wineries that we decided to do room service again and watch Netflix. I know this might not sound adventurous but if you are mum to three kids, who also works and has no down time this was just what I needed. Plus my mate enjoyed just not being on call to anyone too.
If you too would love to do a wine tour of Mudgee I would strongly recommend Maritza from Country Escape Tours. Maritza was fun, personable and very knowledgeable about the region and wines. It was a lot of fun and everyone on the bus got along and had a wonderful time.
Sunday we decided to drive to Rylstone to check out the shops and have lunch. It was fun as I bought the kids some fun pants and before we left Mudgee I also got the twins (jackets from a second hand shop) and Alex (hot wheel cars and tracks) some presents .
Our lunch while in Rystone was dumplings…yes dumplings. 29 Nine 99 Dumplings was a great find and I must say we will go back. If you do want to eat at this resturant they only take cash so make sure you have enough on you to ensure you will be able to have enough dumplings…they are yummy and I could have had a few more! We cannot get this in the mountains so it was a great treat. I did send a picture to hubby to make him jealous too.
After lunch, we slowly made our way back home and on the way, I was alerted to the drama that awaited me. One girl had accidentally hit the other in the eye with the Wii controller…this ended up with the injured child having a cut to the top of the eye, it is swollen and very black. Also, the youngest was completely distraught with the fact that mummy went away for two days, and was extremely upset and kept on wanting me.
Coming home was nice but I think I could have done with more than two days away.
Have you enjoyed time away lately? Did you arrive to disasters at home? I do hope that your escape was relaxing. Mine was and I do think I need to go away more to have some time out.
Where do you think I should visit next?
