Still to do this autumn…

Winter is coming…

As well as being a great excuse to use one of my favourite lines from Game Of Thrones, it’s also a very real observation. In just five weeks winter will officially hit and it will be time to batten down the hatches and hibernate until spring.

Factoring in our two-week holiday to the tropical isles of Hawaii and we’re down to just three weeks of autumn. Three weeks!

I’ve managed to cram in quite a lot so far this season, but there is still a lot I want to do in Canberra before it is officially winter:

  • Have brunch alfresco style before it’s too cold, even in the middle of the day, to sit outside
  • Attend the Anzac Day dawn service at the Australian War Memorial
  • Try coffee from a new cafe
  • Take some awesome photos of autumn leaves before they fade away
  • Get a remedial massage
  • Eat the hot cakes from the Cupping Room that have been flooding my Instagram feed
  • Explore the Old Bus Depot Markets and then walk along the foreshore
  • Get to the movies to see the next Avengers movie
  • See a Brumbies game before Canberra Stadium freezes over
  • Peek into Tocumwal Lane in the city and see the new superhero street art
  • Paint my nails before glove season starts
  • Catch up with some girlfriends and their babies before they turn into toddlers (the babies, not my friends)
  • Walk over to Manuka and explore the new shops

One of the things I had been meaning to do for ages was to revisit the gardens at Old Parliament House. Last weekend I was invited to high tea at this beautiful building so I took the opportunity to arrive early and go exploring. The roses were almost at an end but the autumn colours throughout the garden made it feel magical.

I hope you liked my little list and I would love to know what you are hoping to see, do, try and taste in these final weeks of autumn.
