Today I treated the family (and some unsuspecting patrons at another table, with my regular “pay it forward” act) to a coffee, Mad Hatter style!! We spotted Lady Gar Gar there too, lucky us!! and he joined us for a coffee too (the kids call Grandad Gar Gar)….
The Gumtree restaurant is a special place to me, it has been going since before I can remember and we would often go there for dinner, it has recently had a massive overhaul which has brought it up to compete with the stylish cafe’s of the city and the motel rooms have followed suit and look fantastic.
I went on my first date with my husband there (the rest is history) and we moved into our first home over the back lane from the restaurant and would often just walk up the lane and have a nice romantic dinner, with the MUST HAVE fried Camembert that they used to have on the menu YUMMMM. Which then brings back memories of that special house, 2 doors up from my grandparents, where we had our first child and started married life together.
Another gorgeous couple live there now, which reminds me, I must ask Philippa about a certain dress, that I wore on our first date which I wore to death, only to find out later that my Hubby HATED it!! I lost it after a while and only just found out a year ago, that he had hidden it in the manhole to end his torture hahahahahahahaha!!!!
So, how stylin’ is my family??
I made all the dresses us girls are wearing and the fascinators, The boys dressed themselves and only Gar Gar was in on wearing some over the top headpiece, Master J is too cool for school!
The Merredin Motel and Gumtree Restaurant is kindly letting me take over their place, and cater for, my Fantabulous Frocktober Luncheon, so be sure to rsvp so we know how many goodie bags to make up!!
