T
his year has seen us as winners in many areas of our business.  We won the 2011 Customer Service Business of the Year Award.  Thank you to all our guests who wrote to The Weekender about your experience with us.   We won a $1,000 advertising package and our ads are currently running in the paper.  Here is a sneak peak of one of them.  



We have been using some of our advertising dollars to promote our new package 'The HideAway Infusion'. We also won an Advertising Package with Radio West 78.3 to promote our new package...you should start hearing us on the air in February 2012.  On Valentine's Day we won a photo shoot with Everlasting Images, entered a wildflower in photo competition and came second and lastly a bottle of Limeburners Single Malt Whiskey at the ACCI Christmas Party.

We are so excited- our video for The HideAway Infusion is now ready for you to view.  Please give us your feedback. Click Here to view.




We finally managed to have lunch in a little French restaurant in Albany this week - Lavender Cottage.  It is such a popular place with the locals, it is hard to get a booking unless you book well in advance.  We sat outside under the big umbrellas. The food was very delicious, the atmosphere cosy,  and the service friendly.  It was a beautiful place to unwind in the middle of our Christmas shopping.

 
We had heard about a new fresh fish shop that had recently opened in Albany.  We thought maybe we could recreate the beautiful lunch we had without all the calories that French food has.  

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         

We have started eating Lo Fat and Lo Carb in an effort to be healthier and maybe loose a few kilos along the way.  The food is so yummy.  I have been sharing photos and recipes on our blog.
