What a year so far!

I can hardly believe Easter has come and gone and we head towards the middle of 2015…the year is flying by! I hope you all enjoyed a wonderful break over Easter. I am back from my 3 week ‘Serendipity’ exhibition in Mildura and whilst I was there I took a few days out to travel to Adelaide
