Good morning dear readers. and
I hope you all got to have a lovely lie in and were awoken by loved ones with a cuppa and eggy bread (or whatever your choice of breakfast, personally my husband makes a gorgeous eggy bread) before hopping into your lounge to discover the Easter Bunny had been and showered the whole family with gifts and CHOCOLATE! Aww what bliss, perfect picture that is…
Back in the real world!
Our two boys are going hopping mad on our bed shouting “IT’S EASTER! THE BUNNY HAS BEEN” making me spill my hot latte all over the clean bed sheets. Breakfast in bed quite literally as bits of honey hoops and Petits Filous is mashed into the covers before both boys chase each other into the lounge and face bomb the couch, throwing chocolate eggs everywhere. Lovely.
But once the madness calms down we take the boys for a walk to burn of some much-needed energy before we go for an easter egg hunt in the garden. More chocolate! More energy! Not long after we all sit down to Sunday lunch (LAMB) and watch Jurassic Park. Surprisingly our boys are not at all afraid of the dinosaurs, they just giggle and roar at them. With a goblet of bucks fizz in hand and bits of chocolate melted into my hair I sigh and smile happily at my little family. Husband is tickling the boys while I finish my glass and join in. It’s moments like these in life that make you smile and remember how beautiful the world is.
A small premonition of our day for you there dear readers. Mad, energetic, chocolate and love. Easter is a time for life, rebirth and to celebrate, well, life. Of course there’s the added bonus of chocolate but it’s also spending time with loved ones and making memories. Oh and to not go absolutely crazy over the next few weeks as the kids are off school. Remind me again why they need 2 weeks off!
I hope you have all have a wonderful Easter! Eat, be merry and enjoy it!
