Easter weekend

A very Good Morning to you all today ~ I hope that you had a Happy Easter weekend.

We spent Easter Sunday down in the very lovely seaside town of North Berwick visiting my Mum. The weather has been very kind to us this Eastery weekend and we decide to work up an appetite for lunch by going for a bracing stroll along the beach and believe me, it was very blustery and very bracing indeed! Don't be fooled by the weather in the beachy photograph ~ silly old me forgot to take the camera so this picture was taken on a much brighter day last year.

Yesterday the weather took a bit of a turn for the worse and it became very windy and very rainy indeed. We decided to have one of those very lazy, staying in our pyjamas kind of days and lounged about and ate lots of chocolate eggs and drank vast amounts of tea. A wonderfully satisfying way to spend a day I must say!

In between all the tea drinking and chocolate eating I also managed to find the time to sit with my feet up and do a little crocheting. I have now finished making all the colourful little granny squares that I need to make my woolly paintbox cushion. As you can see I have still got to sew in the little end bits and then join all the squares together but I'm quite sure that it won't take me too long to do that.

There's a very busy week ahead with two small children to keep entertained ~ in ways that hopefully won't involve spending too much money. Although with a trip to the cinema planned that will pretty much blow the entertainment budget in one go!!

I hope that you enjoy the rest of your Eastery break and that you have a fun filled time whatever you may be doing :O) xx

It sounds great - what a way to beat the weather! I love the pieces of the cushion, too. Thanks for your kind words about my mum - I'll be visiting my parents in mid-April, and I'm very glad to have that to look forward to.

Hi Jackie, thank you for your lovely comment on my blog that was really sweet of you! I am glad your Easter went well and I am loving the paintbox cushion - you - like me have lots of ends to sew in - I wonder if there is a special term for this procedure!!!! Enjoy the holidays with your children **Kim**X
