and with that, we go back to school tomorrow – hence my hit and run post. I still have heaps of work to do before going to bed.
Wishing all my readers a Happy Easter. May it be a day filled with family, friends and celebrations. And of course, chocolate!
School goes back on Tuesday. And, boy oh boy, am I ever looking forward to it! Maybe things can settle down for a bit!

It is smaller than my old kitchen, and not as intuitive. When I moved into Boronia, I was able to plan where… Read More
I have been wanting to play with polyvore for a long time. And now that I am in my new home, I am playing with moodboards for the various rooms in my house. The first set I have created is for my front room. This is MY room. Once I move some of the stuff… Read More
I am exhausted. I could not be bothered taking photos at the moment. I woke at 5.30am this morning and although it is now 8pm, I am ready for bed! Over the last few weeks, as I prepared for our move, I have had plenty of time to reflect what today means for the children… Read More
