I’ve taken a break from my crochet to make some plans. Well, to be honest, to make a plan to make plans for Easter.
This marvellous autumn weather is inspiring me to get out and see some marvellous Melbourne over the Easter break. Of course having the luxury of time to take a break after only just returning from our holiday to Vietnam is a bit indulgent, but if I stay focussed and work really really hard in the next couple of days I think I could talk my conscience into giving me a break.
There will be hot cross buns. Toasted. With puddles of melted butter.
There will be chocolate (put it this way, there had BETTER be chocolate, ahem Mr Easter Bunny …. )
There will be a movie to watch. I’ve got my eye on The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, I love Dame Judi and travel so what’s not to love about this one.
I seem to keep bumping into Fred Williams images so there may be a trip to the NGV to see the Fred Williams Infinite Horizons exhibition.
I pondered what plans to make over my elevenses today, and I’m wondering if Easter is the best time to day trip it to Bendigo to see the Grace Kelly Style Icon exhibition at the marvellous Bendigo Art Gallery. This may be a trip best made without my man and without the Easter road traffic. It’s on until 17 June, so I have plenty of time.
Famous last words! Do you ever say that, and find that the last week has snuck up on you and there’s no way you’re going to be able to see what it was you wanted to see? I’m a master at that little trick.
I do love a road trip though. And all those country town bakeries will be open …..
Now, what did I say at the very beginning of this post … something about working really really hard to get all the work on my list checked before the weekend? Better get onto it if that plan is going to stick!

If I get to the NGV it will be a fabulous chance to check out this NGV’s 150th anniversary limited edition tote featuring another favourite Australian artist, Margaret Preston.
