When our Easter break coincides with school holidays it is a wonderful thing. It means we can relax and enjoy Easter, happy in the knowledge that we still have two glorious weeks ahead of us, free of the usual school routine and commitments.
Over Easter we shared plenty of good meals, good company and the odd drink around our wood oven and fire.
The fragrant flavour base for a camp oven lamb roast on Easter Saturday included layers of onion, lemon, garlic, thyme, rosemary and sage.
On Easter Sunday we drove to a property that is fairly new to our family business to check the water tanks and sheep. This expedition involved a few Easter eggs, a packed lunch and some photos of course. As we drove towards this swamp I felt instantly grateful to live in such a beautiful part of the world. A little slice of private, watery paradise in the middle of nowhere.

On the inside all that remains are some shelves and this little collection. There would be so many stories here, if only the walls could talk.

Are you enjoying a warm fire, some interesting scenery or a little extra time to get things done?
I hope so. Happy Friday friends.
