Magnetic Island bound...someone has to do it

Despite the very unfair perfectly understandable comments questioning my reason for going to Magnetic Island (it truly is work you doubting ones!)...I thought I'd post some pics of a gorgeous house that's for sale there at the moment...provided you have a spare $2.49 million in change that is!
Not too shabby...could do lots of good work there with my trusty laptop! Not that that's where I'm going to be. And for those who don't know how very big the main island of our wonderful country is...this is where I'm coming from and going to...morning in Canberra, afternoon in a tropical paradise very hot and unpleasant working environment.

I'll be posting the top ten tomorrow as just won't be from a cold Canberra winter! Yes, yes I know it doesn't get that cold here...but it's nowhere near as warm as Magnetic Island...I did say I was going there right??
Don't forget to enter my cute leather tote bag giveaway here. And after you've done that head on over to my bloggy soul sister Kerri with an 'i' at Driftwood Interiors...there's some of her original art up for offer to a lucky winner (that'd have to be me, but feel free to give it your best shot just in case it isn't!)
all house images from here...maybe I'll check it out while I'm there (oh that's right. no time. working, working...)


  1. You really need to define what you Aussies think cold is! Hope you manage to have some time to play while away! Beautiful home for sale - wonder if it comes with a window cleaner? Have a safe trip.

  2. You have a wonderful, safe trip sweet, and after that lovely mention I take back all my bitter, jealous comments, questioning your definition of 'work'!!! Although, I have to tell you, posting those pics of your typical island shack probably hasn't done your cause any favours! Enjoy the warm weather, it's gorgeous here in Brissie so I'm guessing balmy Magnetic Island will be sensational! K xx

  3. Dear Kerry, You will, I trust, be not too appalled when I confess that I have absolutely no idea where Magnetic Island is. It sounds a little like the kind of place which might have been used to experiment with uranium; commonsense tells me this cannot be so and I am sure it will be, or indeed is, lovely. The house you feature is very swish - perhaps a little too much white for me and rather lacking in the shabby [emphasis on this] chic which I have known, perforce, all my life.

    I am sorry you are having to work and I do hope that proper arrangements are in hand to feed Buffy during your absence.

  4. Am sooooooo jeeeaaalloooouusssss!!!!!!!!!
    Have a safe trip Kerry :)

  5. Take me with you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (I'm shouting up at the sky while you're flying over Sydney on your way to your tropical paradise for 'work') :)
    V jealous & that house! Ah, please bring it back for me as a souvenier. Have a lovely time Kerry!

  6. Have a wonderful, safe and warm trip lovely lady! Oh and I think you were mistaken in your post...I am going to be the lucky winner of Kerri's gorgeous art giveaway :):):) But I guess if it isn't me, then it would be just as wonderful if it is you! (Hope I wasn't too cheeky). Hope you have a fabulous time away, make sure you find some you time in amongst all the work time. ~ Tina xx

  7. Are you in need of an assistant??


  8. Well that does look like a nice assignment to have got in the middle of the winter. Way to go.

  9. Oh enjoy. PS: am besotted with that house!

  10. Have a nice trip Kerry. I am very jealous. I am sure that there is snow around here somewhere today. xx

  11. Have a fabulous time Kerry. What a great location for you to get some work done!

  12. Jealous! Enjoy EVERY second you lucky thing. Oh and let's go halves in that house??

  13. Have fun in sunny Qld, Kerry. I know you will.

  14. What a gorgeous home! I love that kitchen/dining shot with the panelling and the chalkboard wall with 'YUM' on it. Have a lovely time away xx

  15. Have an amazing time, lucky you. Have a pina colada on the beach for all of us freezing our patooties off in the cold winter. LOL Enjoy your time on Magnetic island and see if you can get a guided tour through that house.

  16. I glimpsed the thumbnail of this post before I went to work and all day I was thinking this is where you were staying and wondering how I could get a job like yours! Great pictures. Enjoy your time on lovely warm Magnetic Island.

  17. Looks sensational, enjoy and try not to work toooooooooooo hard....

  18. Man, you lucky girl. Wish i was heading in that direction!!

    Hope you have a blast. Live it up big! jxx

  19. Nice house, too much cleaning though for me. Might just have to get a Tattslotto ticket, and hope someone will do the cleaning for me! Have a great time down on Magnetic Island - hope you have a little spare time to check out the island a bit. It really is a lovely spot.

  20. Looks delicious that house. I would get lost in space....:) xox

  21. Haha, of course someone has to do it and that person is you! ;-) Have a fun trip!!

  23. Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this
    site? I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had problems with
    hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  24. First of all I would like to say terrific blog! I had a quick question
    that I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I've had difficulty clearing
    my mind in getting my ideas out. I do enjoy writing but it
    just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to
    be wasted just trying to figure out how to begin.
    Any ideas or tips? Kudos!
