Sharing my happy with Jamie Ridler and the crew.

I listened to a weather expert yesterday. He told me that wherever you go in the UK this weekend you will get rained on. Well, who cares? We need a bit of the old wet stuff to keep us going after all. It's Spring! It's Easter!

This weekend I intend to paint, love, cuddle, relax and think (and possibly eat chocolate). I've already managed to get covered in paint once already today (making Easter cards with my boy) and then we went on a magical adventure with the delightful Nanny McPhee (small c; big P). She's gone now to find some more naughty children who need her help but don't necessarily want it...

I've had a grand week. Nice and busy with work and some successes to show for it. Small boy brought home a football trophy yesterday - Player of the Month - perhaps he will be playing for the Mighty Arsenal in about 12 years and I can retire. (There is a very good reason why I have chosen this football team - eh Sweetheart?). He also won the prize for finding the most Easter Eggs. Really not too much of a surprise that one.
Oh yes, and the Easter Bunny came early. I was lying in bed last night when I heard this tap tapping at the window. The little furry fella was down on the lawn chucking stones. "Let me in", he whispered... Ordinarily, I would do no such thing. I mean everyone knows that you don't let strange rabbits in your house in the middle of the night and still expect to find carrots left in the morning. However, he did at least come with the right credentials (special Bunny ID and a large stash of chocolate). We are still finding little eggs now. He hid them under cushions, in car transporters and art boxes, on top of things, round the back of things and in so many unexpected places. He also left tiny muddy footprints all over the carpet... Hmm...

I booked a holiday this week... Yup, that picture up top is where I am a goin'.

My friends at Inspiration Avenue and I are planning a blog party - more on this next week. Hope you all can some. It will be so much fun.
I would also like to take this opportunity to apologise to the dear friends I may have tricked with my post yesterday. You see it was April Fool's Day and well... I just couldn't resist... Please forgive me!


  1. what a wonderfully refreshing post ... i feel like i'm right in the middle of your world, following you around as you daydream, stroll and muse ... :) i can imagine your little hero too :) trophy, eggs and all :)

    that holiday you're talking about ... it that real?

    you know i'll never forgive you for what you did to me on 1st april!!

  2. Can your easter bunny come to my house and hide some eggs? Preferably out the reach of the dogs. We seem to have a really lazy bunny who has made no attempt to deliver chocolate to us.

    Thank you for your post! It's fun to get a glimpse of other people's lives. Have a grand vacation and enjoy your next happy week!

  3. Ahhh, I've been waiting for that knock in the middle of the night! So sweet.....I hope you do take a vacation...every mama deserves a good one now and then! Have a great Easter weekend! : )

  4. Thanks for sharing your fun! Love the visit by the Easter bunny - I wish he would come by my place. Or maybe he did... Have a great weekend!

  5. Yes, you got me with your "Wright Stuff"--thanks for the laughs. So clever of the Easter bunny to come early so you could start the fun. Where is that lovely place you're going to?

  6. Oh your photo conjures up some wonderful warm fantasies for me- just splendid! Happy Easter to you and yours!

Also sounds like you have a nice weekend ahead of you,mine started today and its not at all as relaxing as yours,I had to shop today,cook and dye egges tomorrow and entertain on sunday,hopefully fit in some art here and there! Oh that holiday of yours is looking good right now! Have fun and Happy Easter.
