Easter Day

You are never to old for an Easter egg hunt!

I love that the blue eyed boy still gets excited by the little things.

I'm feeling the need for a snooze now lunch is over and the house is quiet. Not sure that toad in the hole was appropriate as it's hardly traditional Easter Fayre but the rellies seemed to enjoy it so that makes me happy.

I haven't had much spare time lately so I didn't even get around to baking a simmnel cake this year (Mr. H is still sulking!) but I did make his 2nd favourite, scones with jam and clotted cream and mum made a truly scrumptious banana and walnut loaf.

She also brought me these and they smell gorgeous.

I did manage to throw together a new Easter tree as last year's branch had become a sorry excuse and was nothing more than a twig.
Mr H was not a bit happy about me chopping into the pear and apple trees but I think I just about got away with it as I managed to convince him it was essential spring pruning, I also muttered something about him having his Easter egg early if he didn't make a fuss!

Sadly the Easter bunny didn't manage to bring me this as requested

never mind there is always next year!

I'm looking forward to the next two weeks at home pottering around finishing a few projects, snuggling up on the sofa with the blue eyed boy and having the traditional Harry Potter day as we do every school holiday.
I'm also excited about the trip to the imperial War Museum in Manchester we have planned.
I also have a little excursion of my own to look forward to, I'm off up to the Lakes on Friday with my mum, we have been invited up to a friend's cottage for the weekend and I'm really looking forward to spending a bit of time with my mum as I haven't seen much of her since I started my job, it's also the quiz in the village hall on the Saturday evening which should be a good giggle.
Wishing you all a very Happy Easter Day

I'm off now to brush up on my general knowledge.......just after Iv'e snatched 40 winks!
