My favourite quote from these school holidays has to be:
Me, driving in the car back from the Southern Highlands, with the 2 kids who'd been very well behaved that morning: "You two are just the best kids in the world"
A little voice (my 5 year old son) piped up from the back seat: "Well... that's not what you said yesterday, Mummy!"
He really makes me laugh.
Today my sisters-in-law and a friend came for lunch. My husband grew up Catholic and so never eats meat on Good Friday so we prepared a huge seafood lunch. An entree of scallops cooked in garlic and butter, followed by a stuffed baked fish (Bream), salt and pepper calamari, a rocket, pear and walnut salad and homemade baked chips. Some champange and sauvignon blanc and lovely company. It sure was a Good Friday.
On the furniture front, my Damask dresser sold this week as well as a couple of other bits from my antiques stall so I had to finish some more furniture.
Here's a little lovely french style desk I've restored. I painted the gorgeous cabriole legs and base in Dulux Fair Bianca Half. I then stripped and restored the top with a dark walnut stain and then estapol. It has come up beautifully - really gleaming.
