A Balanced Life

We still have a couple of weeks more of school holidays and I love the mix of work and play that they bring. My nature is to go, go, go (you may have noticed if you've been here a while) so it's good to have some forced relaxation and fun with my lovely kids.

It's been a little of this:

and a little bit of this:

Industrial filing cabinet painted in ASCP Graphite (i'll share details soon but it's for sale)

This beautiful bedside table is being painted in silver (already sold)

6 of these gorgeous chairs are being de-rusted and painted in ASCP Graphite for my neighbour (custom job) and those gorgeous cabinets behind will be painted on Friday.

This weird raffia shield is getting turned into my version of a African Juju hat.

We've had some lovely evening walks in the park near our house.

and some quiet evenings at home and in the garden

actually it's actually been quite a lot of this:

Hope it continues for the next few weeks.
I love a balanced life!

I love the school holidays. What about you?
