Easter Weekend …. a 4-day break that everyone looks forward to right?
Hmm, not us exactly. We only had the one day as a family to enjoy the ‘Easter Weekend’ Mr S worked all day Friday, most of Saturday and he’s back to work all day today. I worked Friday night (8-midnight) and I will also be working the same tonight too.
But that’s just how it is sometimes, isn’t it? What can you do? We did have a lovely day yesterday though.
L is away with friends for the weekend so we only had C. The weather has been so lovely recently. Saturday afternoon we took C & the dog for a walk along the beach. C had his scooter and scootered along the promenade and we ate ice-creams. Obviously, he wanted to go down to ‘look’ at the sea which 100% resulted in him getting completely soaked and having to sit in just his pants and a t-shirt in the car on the way home … but isn’t that what it’s all about?
Yesterday started the day with a small egg hunt around the house for C. He loved searching out places for those little shiny foil wrapped chocolate eggs. We then spent the morning walking the dog around our local meadows & generally being in the garden enjoying the lovely weather.
We had some family around in the afternoon (my sister, brother in law & nephew) for a BBQ, and of course, I kept the bigger egg hunt for when they were here, especially seeing as it would have been my nephew’s first one. Our garden has to be the best for egg hunts Not just becaise of the size of it but because it has lots of different paths and nooks and crannies just like you would find in the woods. I picked up a super cute Easter Egg hunt pack from Poundland with little cardboard bunny paw prints, arrows and eggs – for a £1 I was amazed at how good it was. I was able to pop them on the grass leading the way to those all important eggs!
We still have another week of the Easter holidays so here’s to another week of no routine and days out.
What did you all get up to over the Easter weekend?
