the bright side always shines thru...

I hope that everyone had a wonderfully restful time over the Easter break, ... of course, we had a great break at our holiday home in Twizel, we know the place well, but of course looked at it from a very different angle now we know that we are moving there at then end of June. We checked out the house that we will be living in .... NOT impressed, it is a bit rustic, and a bit on the small side, the kind of quirky cottagey thing that you would rave about spending a weekend to your friends, and encourage them to do the same, but takes on a completely different view for more permanent living arrangements! We will definitely need to put some furniture in storage, and swap some other stuff around between houses. However, the bright side is that we are given this house to use as part of the deal, and we will ultimately make the best of it! The best part is being so close to so many outdoor activities, I have decided that not working, I will need to get myself into a good routine so I make really good use of all my free time. Little house, little housework huh!

These are some photos from a quilt exhibition that we stumbled upon when we were in Dubrovnik last year....

I had a good giggle at your hubby's T-shirt, too funny. Ahh small houses, trying to squeeze everything in can be a challenge. So you've decided that you won't work? More time to stitch and enjoy the beauty that surrounds you.

Is that pebbles there instead of sand? Looks great
