Happy Easter

It's cloudy and raining here but still a joyful Easter Sunday. We moved our Easter Egg hunt indoors this year. I even hid an Easter Egg in with the real eggs in the fridge, but my children are too clever. Mina enjoyed rolling her plastic eggs around the floor but oh the joy when one popped open and she discovered what was hiding inside. Those little pastel M&M's disappeared quite quickly.

Despite it being rainy it was up to 85 degrees here come the early afternoon. Suddenly that roast with potatoes and steamed vegetables didn't sound as good as it did earlier in the week. Instead Emma took over cooking and we had a picnic on the living room floor. We sliced the roast to make sandwiches, had pickles and potato chips with sliced strawberries and blueberries for dessert. Perhaps not a traditional holiday feast but it was wonderful.

I hope the Easter Bunny brought you something nice as nice as the memories I got!!!
