It’s amazing the things you can stumble along when running early and decide to go for a walk around #lilydale . @yrrmuseum thank you for creating such a wonderful and educational museum. #yesterdaysadventures
It must be #beermonday ... The morning started with taking the lovely owner of @hargreaveshill to the Airport. Then I had a transferred from @balgownieestate to #melbournecbd and the passenger ended up being the International Managing Director of #sanmiguelbrewery @smcbetterworld #beer 🍺 #daysnearlyover just one more transfer to the @melbourneairportau
*EDITED* Happy Mothers Day to all the #mums , #singleparents , #stepmums , #grandmas & those who’s kids have paws #furmums ! It’s been a hectic morning delivering for the very busy @wandinflorist... If you’re like me and forgot to get flowers for the cemetery or gifts for mum, it’s not too late! #happymothersday #supportyourlocal #supportyourlocalflorist #mumsarethebest
Wine Tours are always fun but they are even better with returning families. It gives them a chance to check out some more fabulous #yarravalleywineries . Their lovely twin daughters even brought me a present with their pocket money. #givingisbeautiful #thefuturelooksbright The tour started at there accommodation @balgownieestate and went to @chandonaus, @rochfordwines, @fourpillarsgin, @puntrdwines, @yeringstation. #fourpillars had a food truck @skewerme which was a perfect lunch!
Here’s a photo of some random leaves so I can post about the fact I just drove past the amazing @mrstommylittle (or a great lookalike) at a winery 😲 The #carrieandtommyshow has always been my favourite to listen to while working. #ilovemyjob #celebritieschangingthewolrd
Just as my body clock gets back to normal tonight I’m finishing with a 1am transfer to @balgownieestate and then starting tomorrow with a 4:15am Airport Transfer! ✈️ Picture taken earlier tonight while at @acaciaridgewinery, of the gorgeous @photo.booth.girl van
It’s always great catching up with returning customers but it’s extra exciting when I get to transfer them to the @hillaryclinton #melbourne Tour! Not only will she be hearing about the famous election #trumpvshillary but she will also hear about what it was like first hand for the first woman to ever be nominated for president!
April must be the month to get #married ☺️ Back to back transfers from the popular @balgownieestate to heaps of #yarravalleyweddings ! Started the afternoon run taking a lovely #groom to @vineshelenshill @helens_hill then to @yeringstation, @stonesoftheyarravalley and @zonzoestate. Even managed to squeezed in a pick up from the beautiful @twotrufflescottages. #localbusinessesworkingtogether #appreciatethework
So many #thursdayweddings today, between @coombeyarravalley, @stonesoftheyarravalley & @immerseyv it’s been a hectic afternoon/night. My last two transfers were some of the most genuine and beautiful people you could meet. One was a #barrister and his partner of 25 years who worked with the #homeless . The following transfer was a couple who spent last #christmasday cooking and taking food to the homeless #homelessawareness 💖 Thank you @chateauyeringhotel, @balgownieestate & @araluenboutiqueaccommodation for keeping me busy! It’s so nice to work with other #lgbtqfriendlybusiness 🏳️🌈 #equalityforall #everyoneisequal #everyoneiswelcome
The amazing international artist @meashabrueggergosman was in Melbourne performing and I was lucky enough to transfer her around the Yarra Valley on the weekend. I still can’t believe how humble and friendly she was. She has met some pretty cool musicians including @justinbieber and @dcelion. But she blew me away when I found out she had rubbed shoulders with the amazing (#melbourne record breaking) superstar @pink! I really hope one day we hear #meashabrueggergosman singing #sinceyouvebeengone with my the only artist I’ve seen live more than #pink , @kellyclarkson #ifyoudontdreamitwillnevercometrue #starstruck
It’s always a great feeling when I get to start and end the day with regular clients. I started the day with a local from #wesburn and ended it at @melbourneairportau with a lovely regular, who keeps me up to date with what to watch on #netflix ! Now to have a quick sleep before heading back to #melbourneairport tomorrow morning from the wonderful @balgownieestate!
I just got home from a late transfer and it’s 3:30am, but my body clock is still getting use to #daylightsavings ending and it feels like 4:30am... Thankfully I had a really fun passenger who had some great stories about when he lived next door to @lindsaylohan and danced with the stunning @sofiavergara at a club! Lucky it was a long trip back from @immerseyv to #melbourne so I could hear lots of awesome stories #la #soundsamazing #storytime
Happy 70th Birthday to my amazing #stepdad ! Not only is my favourite town named after your great grandfather but you also owned one of the most successful business to operate out of #wandin ! #sebire #idolize #admire #lookupto A huge thank you to @farrahscake & @party_link for making such stunning personalised items for his special day #shoplocal #supportyourlocal
Tonight I had a job from @stonesoftheyarravalley and had the pleasure of transferring my favourite kind of teacher... a #peteacher ! He was so lovely and genuine. We had a great chat about a lot of things, but I was blown away when I found out his brother in law is a #professor and the first person to preform a laparoscopy (keyhole surgery) in #australia . #breakinghistory #pioneer #changinglives #peoplewhochangetheworld 🙏
@yeringstation was hectic today! They even had a @crownhotels #helicopter on the lawn. Just finished a transfer in #Gladysdale and even had time to get a quick photo of the road named after my family #mcmaster . Now to pick up the #groomsfamily from the @racv.country.club 🤵 💖 #busyeasterweekend
What a crazy day! It started with my first ever #goodfriday #churchtransport from @chateauyeringhotel with a family from the #northernterritory . Some other clients that stood out were some #sydney women (who knew how to party) staying at @balgownieestate and #english #lawyers staying at @yvalleylodge. I don’t think I met one person from #melbourne . By far the best part was meeting an #internationalsuperstar ! I even have the pleasure of transferring her again tomorrow. #starstruck 🎶 🎤
A huge thank you to some #localbusinesses @hargreaveshill, @wattsriverbeer, @maddensrise & @squitchylane. I’ve been collecting some #wine & #beer from some special companies for my step Dad’s 70th birthday! #wandin was named after his great grandfather so he is a true #yarravalleylocal and is a firm believer in #supportyourlocals . I’m sure he is going to love his #hargreaveshill #larger & #jnr #wattsriverbrewing #blondeale #maddensrise #cinqamis & #squitchylane #cabernetsauvignon
Met some lovely suppliers for @officialkenworthtrucks this afternoon doing a transfer from @yarravalleygrandhotel to @zonzoestate. We had a great chat about my step dad’s very successful #transport business in the #yarravalley , at some stages he had 10 #kenworth #trucks on the road at once! #borntodrive #kenworthtrucks #transportcompany #wandin
Sometimes at night you see some horrible things but then nights like tonight you see things that give you hope in humanity. I pulled over to help a woman who hit a wombat. We both couldn’t move the big wombat off the road, so we waved at a couple of cars and they were nice enough to stop. Two young men (early 20’s) hopped out of each car and one of them gave the wombat a big gentle bear hug to move him off the road. It was 10pm and they were dressed up to go out but they still pulled over and helped even though they got blood on there clothes. #hopeinhumanity
On my way back from transferring a lovely couple to @inglewoodestate from @balgownieestate, I stopped past @maddensrise to buy a birthday present 🍷 🎁 They don’t only have a gorgeous cellar door but also genuine & lovely staff #boutiquewinery
So proud to be able to work with the amazing @wandinflorist, we are both big advocates for #equality & #lgbtrights . Quote from the #wandin #florist : “Wandin Florist was thrilled to collaborate today with Frank from “Samelove Photography” Sydney - and Balgownie Estate - Yarra Glen, to whom we are their #1 florist, in our first LGBT photo shoot! Frank’s passion has led him to bring to life a concept close to his heart; a client focused creative business where, in collaboration with a small team of gay and gay-friendly photography professionals, he can deliver to the LGBTIQ community the recognition the relationships deserve. @balgownieestate Resort are Winners of the 2017 Resort Style Accommodation of the Year offering restaurant, weddings, functions & accommodation with an onsite Day Spa- Balgownie have it all! Wandin Florist is looking forward to working alongside these teams & developing ongoing support for the LGBT communities!”
Had a transfer to @fourpillarsgin and decided to have a quick look inside. I was met by a very friendly staff member who gave me a tour. I thought her accent was familiar and then realised she was from #canada ! I transferred two #canadians from @balgownieestate to the #melbourneairport this morning, it must be #canadianday #lovethecanadianaccents #canadiansareawesome
What a perfect way to finish off the weekend, with a #brideandgroom transfer from the stunning @zonzoestate to @yeringgorgecottages and then the family/friends to one of my favourite places @balgownieestate 🥂🍾
I feel like I just got home? Jumped into bed at 1:30am and left the house this morning by 5:30am to go to the @melbourneairportau from @balgownieestate. Now to go home and have a nap before the afternoon shift. #mondaysareforsleeping 😴
Busy 24 hours! I had some humans who have some amazing #occupations . My personal favourite was the #homicidesquad #policeman 🚓 but I also had a #governmentlawyer , a #nurse and even the other side a #criminallawyer . Here’s a great photo I took earlier at @fourpillarsgin after dropping of three lovely ladies from @balgownieestate. I’m ending the night with a #brideandgroom from @acaciaridgewinery and then a transfer from @coldstreambrewery for a family member of one of the biggest companies in the #yarravalley ! #lovemyjob
Driving at all hours I see a lot of things but unfortunately last night I came across a motorcycle and deer accident. The rider was very concussed and had some serious injuries. His bike was obviously a right off but the main thing was that he was alive. Luckily another local came past (as we were down a back street) and helped. It was an awful situations but a reminder of how lucky we are to live in a small town where everyone helps everyone. On a lighter note I had the pleasure of transferring to and from @vueonhalcyon, the son/step son of the couple who started up and own the company @bridgeroadflorist, I think it’s the only florist in #melbourne that is #open24hours . What a great idea for people who forget anniversaries and #valentinesdate 💐 #recoversoon #getwellsoon #thoughtsarewithyou
Beautiful day to get some photos while doing #yarravalleywedding transfers. Photo one: @riverstoneestate Photo two: #devineescape Photo three: @zonzoestate Beautiful venues make taking a photo easy 👌🏼 Now time to drop off a lovely regular to @vueonhalcyon 🥂
A lovely gentleman I drive regularly only just revealed that he was a #torchbearer in the #1956 #olympicgames 🏅 He brought his #bronzemedal with him today to the #healesvillehospital so I could see it! #lifegoal to touch an #olympicmedal
I love it when I have a transfer that educates me and changes the way I see the world. I had a transfer to @stonesoftheyarravalley from @balgownieestate and had the pleasure of meeting @reimaginefilms, who is an incredible man that literally changes the world doing his job! He specialises in making films about environmental and social sustainability. I am not overly educated about #sustainability but it’s something I believe I need to learn more about. “The best time to be environmentally friendly was 20 years ago but the next best time is now!” #enviromentalism : the crazy idea that we should clean up after ourselves. I used to see litter and think why should I pick up after others? But then I thought about all of the animals that might be injured and how unfair it is on them. Now I try to stick by my favourite quote “Be the change you want to see in the world” #changetheworld #makeabettertomorrow #enviromentallyfriendly #starttodaynottomorrow #nevertoooldtolearn
It must be #afl day... I had a transfer to @puntrdwines with a lovely woman who has held the AFL #2014premiership & 2013 #aflpremiershipcup . She works for a #hawthornfootballclub host family. Then I transfer a man straight after from #coldstreamhills to @levantinehill that has met #jameshird & #jobewatson 🏆 Who will be the #2018premiers ? #loveafl
I always appreciate recommendations but it’s especially lovely when it’s from family members of previous clients. I’ve had the pleasure of driving both brothers on their big day 🤵 #wordofmouth It was a funny #brideandgroom transfer this afternoon when I turned up to what felt like a familiar address and then realised I had been there earlier in the morning delivering flowers to the #bridesmaids & #groomsmen made by the amazing @wandinflorist #yarravalleybusinesses #localbusinesses
Huge shout out to @party_link for creating this special #birthday #balloon design for me! I had the chance to have a quick look around your shop and loved the #mrandmr , #mrsandmrs & #mrandmrs decorations. #loveislove #equalityforeveryone #marrigeequality
Nice an early #saturdaynight with my last transfer from @meletos to @balgownieestate. The lovely couple moved to #australia from #malaysia , so we had a great chat about why #malaysianfood is so yummy! It’s always great hearing the history behind these great flavours.
What a view @riverstoneestate today! I had the pleasure of transferring not only the #brideandgroom but also their #bridesmaids & #groomsmen from @theoakslilydaleaccommodation. It was my first time at this #yarravalleyaccommodation and what a great set up it is for the #bridalparty & #groomsparty . It’s not even the weekend yet and I’ve been lucky enough to spend the last couple of days at #riverstoneestate !
Had my first ever Bride, Groom & #furbaby transfer! What a gorgeous #frenchbulldog and better behaved than most children ☺️ I was even lucky enough to finally meet (in person) the owners of @acaciaridgewinery & @araluenboutiqueaccommodation tonight. 👰🤵🐶🥂🍾 🎊
