Easter 2015


Happy Easter!  I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday with family and friends?

We have enjoyed an Easter in Hobart this year – the first of many as we are usually away on the boat, but we celebrated a good friend’s wedding on Saturday afternoon at Glen Albyn Estate.


Other Easter activities included an early morning bike ride on Good Friday, followed by a bushwalk at the Waterworks Reserve with Sam and our little peeps.  I made more Tomato Relish and whilst Nick was busy with “Best Man” duties, Poppy, James and I enjoyed a visit to the Tasmanian Museum & Art Gallery on Saturday morning and marvelled at colourful butterflies and fluffy Emperor penguin chicks.

Sunday we had a ‘recovery’ lunch at T42 and Monday we walked the Alum Cliffs Track at Kingston.  I finished off Easter with more chocolate eggs and a movie at The State Cinema to see Dior and I.  Perfecto!  X

Chinese Puzzle


My friend Annabelle and I went to the State Cinema on Tuesday night to see Chinese Puzzle.  I have always loved The Spanish Apartment and Russian Dolls and this third movie didn’t disappoint.  It was one of those movies that I was totally ‘in the moment’ with and didn’t want to end.

Go along and see it – lighthearted entertainment to take one’s mind off any sleepless baby!

Review by David Stratton

CHINESE PUZZLE is the third part of a trilogy following on from THE SPANISH APARTMENT and RUSSIAN DOLLS. Xavier, Romain Duris, a writer, has followed his English ex-wife, Wendy, KELLY REILLY, to New York after she left him, taking their two children, to live with her wealthy lover, PETER HERMANN. Xavier stays for a while with his lesbian friend Isabelle, CECILE DE FRANCE, and her lover Ju, SANDRINE HOLT, until the latter helps him find an old apartment in Chinatown. Because he needs American residency, Xavier enters into an arranged marriage with a Chinese girl, LI JUN LI, and he also receives the occasional visit from his former lover Martine, AUDREY TAUTOU.
