Meet the Baron

My latest and way overdue acquisition. The final piece in my workspace puzzle. This is the Baron chair and it is even more comfortable than it looks! Ordering it was a lot of fun as I was dealing with a company that aren't accustomed to selling one chair; their specialty is workplace fit outs for large organisations. I talked them into it! My darling husband was a little horrified at the price and tried to convince me that I didn't need the Rolls Royce of chairs. I assured him that had I wanted the Rolls Royce I would have gone for the Herman Miller Aeron chair. My Baron is more like the Porsche of the chair world and if I ever tire of it then it's 97% recyclable, how cool is that?

Happy Easter

Happy Easter! Today is the one day of the year that the boys eat chocolate for breakfast! The easter bunny (who hopped out of bed at 4:18 this morning) left a few tasty treats in the nests we made in the garden yesterday. Not even the rain could deter him! This is a picture of the eldest with his chocolate bunny that he happily beheaded, broke into little pieces and ate.

Easter Eggs

This time not the chocolate variety. The boys and I did this little easter craft project last night thanks to a template and instructions from Sidsel of Spagat Blog. You can download the PDF here and don't forget to get the front and the back for the bunnies. The little one and I went out searching for suitable sticks this morning, it's not difficult as we have a very large front area to our house filled with several varieties of eucalypt. Our easter display has a very Australian feel
as he insisted on including the stick with the leaves still attached.

The Beach

With autumn fast approaching we decided to take off and enjoy the last of summer at Broulee beach last weekend. It's been, incredibly, over a year since we last went to the coast and the boys had such a great time now they are that little bit older. The eldest had a great time with his body board and the little one just liked sitting on the edge of the water and digging holes, which also meant he came home with an extraordinary amount of sand in his swimmers!
The one thing I love about the south coast at this time of year is the vast stretches of beaches with very few people and the water is not too cold.
