I did good today.
Hubbie was rapt with his Father’s Day pressie.
It came on the back of him telling me a while back that he was seriously over the accumulation of things. I had to agree. We still have unopened boxes from our move, and I just want to go through them and cull what I can… and even then I will still have stuff that I have no proper home for.
Following on from a Facebook question from a member in a group I’m in, about kid-friendly wineries on the Peninsula, my ears immediately perked up and I formed a plan. I have been hanging to go to a winery in these parts since our move, and now with Spring upon us, and then the addition of ‘what to do for Father’s Day,’ I went through the list to see where we could go as an experience, rather than just get Hubbie a present for the day.
It was meant to be Hickinbotham. It was the first number I called from the list of kid-friendly wineries listed, and they were able to book us in for a set lunch.
Well, the weather was not Spring-like, not one bit. It was very windy, there was sudden rain at times, and it was cold.
But the winery, was wine-like. Authentic and vintage, relaxed and unpretentious. It was perfect.
And Hubbie LOVED it. Absolutely loved it.
And we kind of decided that experiences are the way to go. Yeah, sometimes you don’t mind a gift, and sometimes you even really want something really bad…
and then other times, you just want to splurge. And we did.
Hubbie is one fussy man, so to get points off him…
was present enough.
