Hey dudettes, it’s me Beach Cottage Barls super blogging puppy from the beaches of Sydney.  Mrs Beach Cottage is feeling a bit, how shall we say, delicate today and so I am here to say G’day instead

Errrrm lovelies yesterday we had a bit of a shindig around here…it was my first experience of Beach Cottage entertaining….some serious tablescaping went on for 12 (you can see all the chairs on the deck below) ..…not impressed that I didn’t get a spot at the table though…c’mon am I not cute enough to sit up there?

…and me oh my the food, lots of lovely salads, plus couscous and pork with crackling that was spit roasted out in the garden…there is something about big joints of meat slowly turning over a fire out in the Spring air I tell ya (you can see it here in Beach Cottage Food)…we started off with a platter of antipasti…proscuitto and a slab of Provolone plus a couple of big jugs of Pimms No.1….and ended up down by the Summer House with the fire pit and marshmallows.

So Mrs Beach Cottage was a leetle bit into a few drinks, oh how funny, funny, funny, she was wobbling a lot…all I can say is wowzas that woman can put them away..

Today ain’t pretty around here, the cottage or her…she’s walking around in dark glasses and muttering stuff like ‘never again’…and something about her allergy and puffed up lips?

I ask you, owners who’d have ‘em.

I too have not been my usual self…very very tired peeps here in Beach Cottage Land…hello I went to bed at 2am so  I have been mooching around from one sleeping place to the next all day long…it’s an early night for me tonight…

OK, it’s over and out from Beach Cottage Land, normal broadcasting will resume tomorrow with some housey pics, the armoire will finally be here, a coastal furniture makeover and a lovely recipe…

You can follow along on Instagram, we are ‘abeachcottage’…I often crop up on there too….it’s the cute factor

    I accidentally found out that alcohol REALLY disturbs my sleep when I practically gave it up 3 months ago to save calories. Damn, and I thought it was menopause creating my sleep problems. Sadly this aging body can only handle little, occasional alcohol now.

    Yesterday we had a big family shindig, oh I was soooooooooo good! I had 2 drinks in total over a long day. We too had meat on a spit, crackling, cous cous and beautiful fresh salads, outside in the gorgeous Australian Spring weather.

    Goodness me and you call yourself an Australian… sarah my dear you must learn to HOLD YOUR DRINK or never, ever admit you are hung-away-over……. very un Aussie……..!

    The spit roast sounds amazing, I am very jealous we are not neighbours!! Because even if I wasn’t invited in I would have just come :):)

    This weekend is when we are coming to Sydney…. staying at The Langham {what used to be The Observatory}

    in case a hangover might have been involved, the best cure I have found is a greasy cheese burger. it really works. not that we are talking about a hangover. that barls, he is just too much! hope you feel better by now!

    I don’t blog (yet!) but I would probably have to enlist help from my little pooches, Coco and Ping once in awhile too! Cute post and I hope that you are feeling better! By the way, what is a super cream? I need to know! Love to Barls!
