EASTER WEEKEND IS HERE! 🐣 🥚 🐰
Easter is here guys! And guess what that means? We get to stuff our faces with hot cross buns and chocolate 🤤⬆️. What about our diets? Fuck it, once a year won’t hurt, relax and live a little 🤷🏼♂️. But for all of us who can’t relax or just want to stick to our diets (which is ok as well, I may or may not do this 😏) then an easy tip is to be one step ahead, so Saturday night (before Easter bunny arrives) add what chocolate/hot cross buns you’d like to eat to the tracking app you use and plan the rest of your meals around that.
Have a great ISO Easter everyone 🐰
Easter Weekend looks like this for the Forge... Open Saturday + Sunday (usual hours) and Closed Good Friday and Easter Monday 🍕🐰🍕 #ballarat

Today I had grand plans involving fabric and needles, but it had stopped raining and I have stopped coughing (finally!). So, into the garden I went.
I had planned just to plant a few daffodil bulbs that needed to go in. Of course, once that was done, freesia and grape hyacinths went in and blue iris were transplanted.
Then I thought I'd put together one of the raised garden beds I bought a few weeks back.
All four, were assembled in my kitchen (natch) with the assistance of this fabulous little electric screwdriver I was given a year ago. So much easier on the hands and wrists than an actual screwdriver or one of those cordless drill things.
I think the (GIANT) kittens approved.
Now to let my hands and back recover before levelling the ground and filling.
🐰🐣 Happy Easter 💛 Friday kids🐣🐰 We may be temporarily closed due to being pro-active about helping the Ballarat community stay safe & flatten the covid-19 curve...
BUT we secretly celebrated Easter a week early & we really hope these adorable photos bring a smile to your face. ☺️
Please share with your friends as they too might need something to smile about 🥰 #ballarat#stayhome#ballaratbusinesses#bekind#ballaratlife#dogstagram#easter#doggydaycare

I have had a delay with some material I have ordered due to covid-19 so I will be revisiting and finishing jobs that I have left on my shelf for a while. I'm looking forward to finishing these off. Original model by @lilykill1.
A lot of venues are still plating up delicious fare in our region in takeaway boxes only!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ @moonandmountain are smashing out takeaway and so are many other venues. Be sure to head over to our other page @eatdrinkwest_ and check out the link in our bio for 'Delivery or Takeaway' options.
Also head over to their social media pages to find out opening hours and ordering times.
Happy Easter long weekend!

Loving being back snatching regularly 🏋️. Working on all the essential bits to make sure the end product is good 😬. Felt much better lifting today compared to Wednesday🕺. Goes to show that you sometimes do have bad days and good days😎. Hope you’ve all had a ripper Friday! 😘👍

Hi everyone I thought this might be a nice time to open the virtual doors of @studio_408_buninyong I am a creative and have been enjoying this time to reflect and put some projects into the next gear. I know a lot of my followers will be also connecting with art/craft in their own personal private way. Some may find it an escape from the never ending bombardment of media, some using their talents to express their anxiety at the unknown and others just bloody enjoying hiding away and indulging in what we do best! So thought I would like to offer my Instagram platform for any like minded artists that would like to exhibit, show, sell, share and express their current creations. Your work could be jewellery, pottery, oil painting, acrylic pouring medium, doll making, knitting I don’t mind it just needs to be completed and something you have created in your current isolation. If you would like to DM me here or via my email email@example.com I would be happy to facilitate. If you could send me a good image of your work, not too high a resolution and I will share/promote. Please spell out if you are wanting to sell or just exhibit to show. A small blurb can be added as a seperate document to the artwork however time will permit if I can offer this across the board. I have no expectations of being paid for my doing this work. If however you do make a sale through this process and if you feel generous or able my husband and I are both currently out of work due to COVID19 so we would accept a donation 😀😀however NO PRESSURE! If you are happy for me to post your email or phone number for personal enquires let me know. I will start with enquires from Buninyong, Ballarat and surrounds first and will look outside this demographic if I feel the need. So please share this with your friends that don’t have Fbook or insta. So if you haven’t started some art/craft here is a good reason. Can’t wait to see what have created! 🥰🥰 #ballaratartists#ballarat#buninyong#ballaratandsurrounds#shareart#communityart#exhibition#createandcultivate#create#cityofballarat#ballaratart#ballaratartgallery

Tonight's dinner was home made pizza
Had the twins helping make pizza for them and the boys with mixed meat and cheese
Megan and I had cheese and vegetables
It was lovely
This painting has changed totally since I started. I really like where it’s heading. Was super nervous about attempting a banksia pod but but it’s working out ok 👏

WE ARE LIVE! 🎉
My first bundle of educational and enrichment goodies are live on @teacherspayteachers
I will be using this platform paired with a Facebook page to work through the activities with you and your children in tutorial form. Let’s bring these ideas to life and bring musical play into your home! #remotelearning#distancelearning
March was a bit of a whirlwind, so my New Year's Resolution to read affirmation quotes and track my goals went on the backburner.... hopefully I can get back on track this month.... .
Have you met my new bestie?⠀
Working from home is HAAAAAAARD on the body.⠀
Sore neck. Sore shoulders. Headaches. The lot.⠀
Despite my best intentions, and an occupational knowledge of ergonomic setup, I’m generally on the couch, laptop on the lap, toddler climbing on the shoulders, baby at my feet... the definition of poor home-office setup.⠀
So I’m bonding with my spikey ball.⠀
She’s helping smash out all the tight sore spots, and blackmailing me into improving my home office setup.⠀
Don’t be like me - set yourself up well at home!⠀
Make sure you’ve given your office the ergonomic once-over:⠀
💚 A chair with decent back support, and preferably with elbow support;⠀
💚 Hips at about 90deg when sitting;⠀
💚 Feet flat on the floor (or use a footrest)⠀
💚 Head over shoulders (don’t poke your chin forward to see the screen!);⠀
💚 Wrists straight/neutral when typing;⠀
💚 If you’re using a laptop, get a separate keyboard, and then elevate your screen so that you can look at it straight ahead;⠀
AND TAKE BREAKS!
Set reminders to beep in your phone every half hour, and GET UP and move!
We won’t be back in our ‘proper’ workplaces for a good while, so it’s worth taking the time to set yourself up properly.
Send this post to a friend who needs it, or click the little ribbon to save it for yourself, so you can review your own setup when you’re next ‘at work’.⠀
And if you need a spikey ball, we’ve got every colour! $12, available for contactless pick up this week 💁🏼♀️
Bring the celebration right to your home with the new, limited edition LipSense Fiesta Collection!

DINNER: Vegetable Tajine
A Moroccan family favourite full of vegetables, chickpeas and red curry sauce.
I’d normally serve this with cous cous, preserved lemon yoghurt and lots of fresh herbs but I’m using what I have in isolation.
