Spring in the air

Spring has suddenly arrived in Canberra with glorious sunshine and a profusion of blossoms, bursting from branches in all shades of white and pink.

It reminds me of some of the beautiful iznik tiles I saw in the mosques in Turkey, as well as all the wonderful Japanese designs based on sakura cherry blossoms.

Warren has just got a new job, which is long overdue, and very exciting. We decided to take a quick holiday (with Thomas) to Great Keppel Island in Queensland for a week, to celebrate. We're leaving tomorrow and I can't wait.

This meant that I had to face buying a new swimsuit - very daunting post baby, but I managed to find one which wasn't too dreadful, and I finally got back on the sewing machine to whip up two very simple wrap around skirts to cover up out of the water.

This photo is pretty awful, because I didn't have time to take it in daylight (and couldn't face modeling them right now!)

I'll take some knitting, and hope to have lots of lovely photos to show when I get back
