A few days of relaxing

Good morning my lovelies, with the school holidays drawing to a close I’ve enjoyed a few days off work. It’s been really nice to unwind and spend time with my family and friends and not have a paint brush in my hands. 

Although don’t get me wrong I absolutely love painting but I’m finding that my shoulders and biceps are aching a lot lately. Last year it was my hips from sitting weirdly when I painted so I changed that and now my biceps are aching so I must be doing something differently that’s causing that pain. I need to stretch more I think ... and probably paint less. And walk more and lose weight...don’t get me started.

But today when I had some quite time instead of painting I sat and read a magazine and gazed at my wall of greenery in the garden. How beautiful has the rain made everything look. 

In the late afternoon Phil and I were kid free and we walked up to Rozelle and we found a wine bar serving last drinks so we had a glass of rosé and sat and talked. Very nice to relax and enjoy each other’s company. 

I did have a few customers come to pick up pieces including these lovely large bedsides. Lisa has been a customer for years and so it was nice to see her again and know that she is still loving my furniture.

I’ll be back into work today . Lots of new pieces to pick up including some lovely French pieces. Exciting to start the new week off with some great pieces

Enjoy your day.
