So, we had a week of Spring break and we went for our annual trip to Tassie. This time it was a bit special as we were spending some time with both the big boys and house hunting (more on that in the next post).
Our flight to Tassie from Melbourne was a bit exciting as there was a film crew and Dev Patel (slum dog millionaire) flying down to film a movie that Nicole Kidman is in (she wasn't on our plane).
The flight into Hobart is always spectacular as the plane gets nice and low and the view is amazing.
We went straight from the airport to pick up the boys and went to Salamanca market for a wander. It was so lovely to see all my kids together again. Even if an attempt at a photo created the usual shenanigans.
We got there in the end...
Ella got herself a unicorn hat. An awesome hat.
Remi really seemed to miss us. His first time away from home, and it was so good to see him settling into uni really well.
We went straight to a house viewing after that, and liked the place so much that we made an offer on it the following day. It was in Sandy Bay, and we loved the idea of having a house near all this.

|Oh those clouds!|
|Superb location for an fine art school.|
|These big cruise ships come in for 1 night and then leave.|

We spent a morning up at new Norfolk and discovered the fantastic Drill Hall where I could have spent SO MUCH MONEY, but only bought a Turkish rug that I will share at some point.
We also investigated some other quirky places
|This was a full Victorian doll house with a teenage room in the attic!|
|I thought these heads were really creepy until it was pointed out to me that they are doctor Who heads.|
|Ella loved how these pianola rolls looked like wands from Harry Potter|
We went up to see my dad and step mum on the east coast. We had a bbq lunch, cracked out the martial arts weapons and attempted to remove a hills hoist (as you do).

A good trip, but not long enough...up next, our house.
