Between Christmas and New Year we headed to Leura to escape. It was so good to be in the Blue Mountains again. I had forgotten how much I missed it. The mountains were surprisingly busy for this time of year and the only place available to stay was a beautiful French provincial style 5 bedroom house. I took some interior shots just because it was so thoughtfully decorated. It was a little large for us obviously but also loads of fun and our dog loved racing around the 1/2 acre back garden. The house had a gas fire, pool table and enormous chef style 6 burner double stove where I cooked risotto and our breakfast each morning. We were pretty spoiled with a coffee machine and I liked having a TV in the bedroom. It was so nice to snuggle under the covers and fall asleep to some silly movie- in this case The Witches of Eastwick and Groundhog Day on two separate occasions. It was a great mini break and my only wish is that we could have stayed a bit longer. We are looking forward to heading back again in July when it will be colder with even more excuse to snuggle up together.
