Mmmmm…Coffee at Rhubarb

A while ago now my favourite coffee shop Nanna’s closed down. It was a sad day, and I bought a few retro goodies from the store before it closed it’s doors.

So since that happened, I have been on the hunt for a replacement. I have tried quite a few coffee shops in and around Launceston and thought I would share a few of my favourites on the blog, plus what better thing to do than go for a coffee when all the kids are at school?

Rhubarb is fairly new to the coffee business, it was firstly a gift shop run by a lovely lady called Ruth. It is the most amazing gift shop with every nook and cranny filled with something different!  Rhubarb is situated in Riverside, a suburb of Launceston.  The small store expanded into the building next door which made way for more amazing gifts, and COFFEE!!!

What I love is the special little vintage treasures tucked in between all the new things, and the coffee was delicious.

I will definitely be visiting again.



On the weekend

I had been looking forward to the Easter weekend to spend some time with my family and friends, so when the weekend finally arrived what did I do?

Fell in a heap with a migrane.  I got up Friday morning head thumping and stomach rolling and went straight back to bed.

I have a tendancy to do this, even on our honey moon I fell ill, I don’t know if it’s my body’s way of taking a break after being go, go, go all the time.

So we headed out Saturday to take the kids to Myrtle Park, but it rained and was freezing!!!  So on Monday we tried again, this time we went closer to home to the Tailrace park and it was a beautiful day. I almost didn’t take the camera but at the last minute ran back inside to grab it.


I Spy


My daughter decided she didn’t want any photos of her taken so she ran away at every opportunity I had the camera pointed in her direction.

It also helped that she was in a maze.

Running Away



Just to prove I was there, I asked my husband to take some pictures as evidence.

I was there too

Playing in the grass

After a play we went for a walk along the boardwalk where you can view the river, although the river is just mud and not much of a view, so I just took more sneaky photos.



The little one started to get tired so we began to move on,


Somewhere along here my daughter decided she would like to be in a picture (finally)


So she posed

Now she wants a photo

A few more

Lovely light




So glad I went back inside to grab the camera!
