A couple of months ago, Hubs and I were given a bottle of Moet Champagne, and have since been looking for/trying to make an opportunity to share it in celebration of Hubs finishing his PhD. The time came on Friday night when Hubs and set off for a picnic on the banks of the Ross River. Mum is staying with us at the moment, so we headed off around 5:30pm and wished Mum all the best.
We found a lovely clearing about 10-15min bike ride from our house and set ourselves up.
We got there just in time to watch the very pretty sunset.
And I made sure I had packed real glasses, because real Champagne needs real glasses.

Hubs’ answer to “give me something special!”
I was getting worried that we had gotten there too late and that we were about to run out of sunlight. I looked in the other direction to find a full moon!!!
(A bit hard to see here if you don’t know where you’re looking but it’s there!)
We had such a lovely time chatting and eating yummy things. And the Moet? Little bubbles of absolute bliss.
