Burnt at Elwood

I was viciously attacked by a cup of tea yesterday!! It was a cowardly action as I had my back turned and had done nothing to provoke it.
I have become quite addicted to my travel cup this year and always take tea with me in the car. While getting in the car yesterday with arms fully laden, the wind knocked the car door into my upheld elbow which unfortunately was carrying my tea. Scalding hot tea proceeded to pour down the side of my neck.

The funny thing is it didn't hurt that much when it happened but I decided to grab the ice pack just in case. Thank god because by the time we met Mum and Dad it was excruciatingly painful.

I spent the entire lunch with the ice pack pressed to my neck and when that had died the lovely waiter at Elwood Beach House kept me supplied with ice.



Which brings me to my second reason for posting...What a great place the Elwood Beach House is when you have kids. We sat at a table by the window and were able to enjoy our lunch while E and B ran around in the playground. For those who haven't been there, the play ground is completely fenced in and provides hours of entertainment. All our meals were delicious and the wait staff were extremely helpful. My hot tip would be to park out in the street as the parking in the car park is expensive.
Definitely my pick this month for outings with kids

Is there a hint that I should be getting???? Other great cafes to go to??? Other places that cater for kids??? I would have given you ice .......... might not have been as good looking or trendy as staff over the bridge but if you got me on a good day might have had a bit of make up on and hair would have been brushed ...............

Spent many a morning at the Elwood Beach House when my girl was little. Heaven sent it was.

Hey Jenny, I think we've met. I've been to your shop. You'd just received a big stash of clothes made from repro feedsack prints. We had a long conversation about 1930 feedsack, and it's origins. It was a while ago now, but I still remember it.
