Happy New Year. I hope you had a lovely Christmas and managed to squeeze in a break from all the craziness of life. We had a lot of guests over Christmas which made it lovely but also busy and a bit tiring. Lots of beach days and enjoying Sydney's beautiful outdoors.
A drink at the Oyster bar before a play at the Opera House with the kids, Phil and Nana.
A big swell at Clovelly - still clear enough to find lots of Blue Gropers
playing tourist in my own city
magnificent view and evening with good friends for NYE
and lots of lovely times at home with friends also, enjoying being in our house.
I haven't been blogging because we've had a lot of guests to stay over Christmas and January as my computer is in the guest room/study so I didn't want to intrude on our guests to write my blog. The break has been good anyway. The other day was actually the 5 year anniversary of my blog. That's a lot of furniture makeovers and a lot of furniture painting advice I've shared. Sometimes I don't know if it's worth it to keep blogging as how long can people remain interested in painted furniture and what I do but a lot of you still seem to like it so here I am for another year.
I have been busy painting a lot of lovely pieces already in 2016 and will once again share them here on my blog as well as facebook and instagram if you want to follow along.
Thank you for all your support over the years.
