/ Dad blowing the eggs for us to paint and decorate.
/ School holiday craftiness.
/ This bunny joined our table for Easter.
/ These orchids have been going for about a month, they're kinda dying but I still love them.
/ Lego city still stands strong.
/ Grimy kitchen tiles and a peaceful cuppa in my new birthday tea cup.
Back to school this week for us. And as much as I cherish the school holiday freedom of slow mornings and days to do nothing, I'm also happy to be welcoming back routine and structured days, although I'm sure I'll be missing my little ones, some alone time is long overdue...
Happy days to you! xx

We're loving this Easter long weekend. Time to relax, catch up with family and of course over indulge in a little too much food and wine. We've painted eggs with watercolours, getting our Easter baskets ready for tomorrows hunt and are just about to make a batch of these hot cross buns.

Last week one of our girls finally laid her first egg! (apologies to those who have already seen this pic on instagram) We are beyond excited to have eggs at last, when it just seemed like it would never happen. A good six months has past since our girls first arrived, we lost a couple in the heat over summer, and have added a few new ladies to our flock. Nina presented us with her first egg at our backdoor step, after a few days she finally found the nesting box and has laid a sweet little egg everyday since. It really is one of the most rewarding and satisfying things, raising chooks and collecting their treasured eggs each day.
Just in time for Easter.

Wowzers, I don't know where last week went, it just past by faster than ever. I'm grateful for school holidays this week, a chance to regroup, recharge and spend extra time with my favourite people.
