What another lovely day, although i agree with my elderly neighbour when we were chatting over the garden fence earlier; this may be our only Summer weather for the year..therefore i'm determined to make the most of it! It would be wonderful if it could last for the Easter hols next week. Mia and I have a few nice things planned; chocolate cornflake nests with mini eggs & fluffy chicks, an Easter tree of catkins in a tall vase decorated with eggs, and some fun Spring-themed art and craft.
Today Baby Boy & I have been enjoying the sunshine in the garden, he is facinated with Oscar the rabbit, and enjoys watching him leap around his run. Whilst he was doing this, I noticed a little ladybird on the guinea-pig pen - i haven't seen a ladybird in YEARS! I took a quick photo to show Mia when she came home;
When she saw it she was horrified..she said "I didn't realise they were THAT big"! Obviously she hadn't understood that the photo was out of proportion and that i'd zoomed in!
This afternoon we went for a long walk and back through the town, stopping at my favourite vintage shop on the way home (how could i not go in?!) where I previoulsy bought my bargain deckchair! This time i can't tell you what i bought just yet, as it was the last couple of items for the Easter Swap!! It's so exciting!! Everything is ready now so I just need to pack it up and post if off to the lovely Saphy ( ) in time for Easter!
We also popped in to the Samaritans charity shop afterwards and i couldn't resist this cute knitted Lion (30p) and what i think is an egg cosy (10p!) -
The Lion is an Easter gift for Baby Boy, it will look great on his shelf in his room with his other knitted toys, and i'm going to put the egg cosy over an Easter Egg for Mia;
You can't go wrong for a grand total of 40p can you?! Mia will love the egg cosy for sure!
Well, i'd better go off to bed now, i love this part of this evening, it's the first "ME" time i have all day, both children are fast asleep and i can settle down with tea and toast and write this blog or catch up on everyone else's! xx
