Bit late in coming, but I thought I'd still put up a Bank Holiday post, seems rude not to, although unlike everyone else, my choccie supply is still pretty much intact and likely to last me for a good while to come! It's funny but if I do have Easter Eggs I'm not in the mood for eating them, but if I don't I miss having some munchies about. Anyway the Easter Bunny left me with two, and a Bank Holiday break that was pretty good.
I did pick up another cold bug which hasn't been much fun this week, and there was some typical Easter Sunday rain which put paid to some plans, but that gave me a good chance to get stuck into some reading (something I've wanted to do for a while, but nothing was sinking in). I picked up the new Bridget Jones novel by Helen Fielding, and managed to read a good portion of that. I've not read the previous two books, only seen the films, but it's a pretty good read so far.
Bank Holiday Monday was the best day of the long weekend by far, mostly helped by the fact it was lovely and warm and sit outside sunny. I got into the garden and flexed my green fingers a little - something quite satisfying about killing weeds!
My sister visited with my favourite little person and her gorgeous fluffball Wilson as well, and we had a lot of fun in the garden. Wilson was full of energy bounding around the garden after his ball (when my nephew wasn't stealing it), and Mum set up a little Easter Egg hunt for Joey. Think he is too little to get the significance of it all just yet, but he enjoyed taking his new pull along around to collect the eggs and found all the healthy treats inside. Aunty Lauren also bought him a little set with a spade, fork, bucket, and little watering can which he seemed to really like, I am training him early to help me grow things in the garden.
It was just the day I needed, sun, family, and relaxing times in the garden thinking of nothing, what Bank Holiday's should be all about.
I'll attach a few pics to this post so you can see what we all got up too, if you have any Easter tales to tell, I'd love to hear them. I reply to all messages, and try my best to read all your lovely blog posts.
