Dining al fresco

When I was pregnant this was my favourite bench – a serene spot in the Government House gardens. It is about halfway between my house and downtown, perfect for taking a break when I was carting around that huge tummy.

Now that baby is here the bench has become one of my emergency feeding stops. Most days I have our little one out in the carrier for a long walk and it is usually the case that he won’t make it all the way home without a meltdown. A bench in a quiet, private setting is like a desert oasis when you have a screaming baby attached to you and you’re still 20 minutes from home. And given the many, many hours spent breastfeeding each day, it’s a treat to have a change of scenery from my couch.

The garden is beautiful right now with all the spring things coming to life. Daffodils, cherry trees, primulas, hellebores, rhododendrons, camellias and many other blooms line the pathways. Just beautiful for walking after baby’s al fresco lunch.
