How lucky was I today to get to drive the owner of @phillip_johnson_landscapes himself, before his appearance on the ABC channel tonight at 8:00pm. He will be on the show Dream Gardens talking about the beautiful accommodation @billabongfalls he built. How lucky are we this beautiful place is located near by in the picturesque town Olinda.
I was lucky enough to start my day with this inspirational man who has literally changed the way most people think of gardens and the environment. Now I’m ending my night at the Ethical Market in Blackburn. Hanging around good people makes me want to be a better person 💕 #weonlyhaveoneplanet

Happy Birthday – or “Stol lat” -- to Basia (pictured in the middle)! We hope you, and your friends Kristy (right) and Tania (left) enjoyed your Italian-style lunch at Soumah! Cheers 🥂 #SoumahWines
Yesterday’s spread at our Pique-Nique at the Chandon Lawn! It was all packed in a cute basket and takeaway boxes (that we, of course, omitted for aesthetic purposes😂)

DID YOU KNOW? • Soumah was listed as an Australian Top Winery in 2019 by The Real Review.
“The Real Review Certificate of Excellence is awarded to a select group of wineries that consistently produce excellent wine. The Top Wineries list is a national benchmark that shows where your favourite winery is ahead of its peers.” ~ @therealrvw
Our Cellar Door will be open all summer (except Christmas Day and Boxing Day). If you haven’t been in awhile or you’re thinking of introducing your friends to Soumah, we would love to see you. Consider booking a private group tasting. Or, stay for lunch. Reservations via link in Bio. #SoumahWines#Australiantopwinery#therealreview
I finally had a chance to drop into @yileenapark on my way home from a wedding transfer to @immerseyv. I am so happy I’ve finished my Christmas shopping now I’ve picked up the last of my Christmas goodies!
If you’re not too sure what to get someone for Christmas I would highly recommend looking at Yileena Parks smoked products and obviously their aged wines.
The best part about these types of gifts is food and wine never goes to waste unlike many other gifts.
I was pretty pumped when this afternoon's passengers noticed our new sleek black iPhone and Samsung retractable chargers that are on back seat charging stations. #youcanalwaysimprove

Some days I really do have the best job in the world. I met three lovely ladies who not only have the most beautiful friendship I’ve seen, but gee they were hilarious! If goggle box can take off I recon a camera on these three would go world wide! They were funny, kind and caring women and I’m glad they all have kids because we need more people like this in the world.
Their transfers today were to Rae’s Restaurant at @balgownieestate. I was lucky enough to be able to then pop over to the Balgownie reception and take some international guests to the Airport. I then headed back to Rae’s Restaurant to pick up again my wonderful ladies.
The three women were originally meant to visit Melbourne with another friend who unfortunately couldn’t make it... So I think I’m going to give them the nick name Destiny’s Child 🎶 which also suits as I heard some funny stories about them singing into spoons from their balcony last night 🤣
PS it’s the first of December and how good is Balgownie’s Christmas tree🎄 It looked so stunning I took a photo to put on my wall and put our Christmas gifts under 😆

Oh no that disappointing moment when you don’t realise it’s Black Friday sales until the end of the working day 😬 Thankful my local post office told me this afternoon so I’ll know why the wifey has a smile on her face later on 👩🏼💻 💻+ 🛒 = 🤩
I was even in the city earlier today transferring some @balgownieestate guests and could have grabbed myself a bargain if I’d known... 🤣 as if I’d go shopping unless it was an AFL store 🏉
I’m excited to have my first ever concert pick up from the @yorkonlilydalehotel heading back down Warburton Hwy with multiple stops all the way down to Millgrove.

It’s been a wonderful week getting to know and transfer some very important guests. They said it was one of the best work trips they’ve ever had, thanks to their wonderful hosts and the incredible job they did to not only make them feel welcome but to organise a great experience. From waking up with kangaroos out their window at @yvalleylodge to enjoying the wine and food at @wildcattlecreekestate.
Unfortunately it’s that time when we have to say goodbye.
On our way to the airport we drop past @levantinehill where one passenger knew the owner and of course loved her lunch and wine.
I was amazed to find out one of the woman trained in the Olympic team with Dawn Fraser! If this woman wasn’t enough talented in one family, her son is also a famous conductor for an orchestra in Germany.
Both woman are married to Englishman and one loved her organic products so I gave them a parting gift to share with their loved ones, some @yarravalleyteaco to take home. They also surprised me with a beautiful gift from Levantine Hill 🥰
I’m excited to be ending my night driving my favourite @balgownieestate receptionist and her husband home from the city before taking a Bride, Groom and two car loads of guests back to the beautiful Balgownie Estate from their wedding at @acaciaridgewinery.
I was lucky enough to be chosen by a very popular Yarra Valley school to be a personal driver for two interstate guests. It’s been so nice getting to know them both all week and learn about many things as they work very high up in education around not only Australia but internationally. I didn’t think they’d teach me about my own backyard- the beautiful Yarra Valley but they have! Where they are staying at @yvalleylodge the stunning river is actually the Yarra River!
I’m excited to be dropping them off and picking them up at @wildcattlecreekestate. I’m sure I won’t be able to help myself with my weird amount of saddle club facts 😆

I’ve had the best few days hanging out with a lovely English couple staying at @balgownieestate.
It was quite sad saying our goodbyes when I dropped them off in Brunswick this morning. They were originally in the Yarra Valley to celebrate their son’s wedding at @stonesoftheyarravalley on the weekend.
It was such a fun time from learning how to do the famous Queens wave 👑 to learning about the countries in the United Kingdom, Brexit!, Princess Diana and the ways she changed the world. I didn’t realise she contributed towards changing the ideas of the public and helped the movement toward aids. I was then even more excited to find out they lived two doors down to a woman who bred corgi’s and sold one to the Queens mum!
Today’s fun fact thanks to my customers: Did you know ALL international pilots have to speak English?... how lucky are we to live in country that speaks such an internationally known language. #iwantacorgi#ilovemyjob#englandlove
