While there’s no way I can keep up with Sunday Sevens every week, I thought I could give a holiday version a go. To find out more about #sundaysevens head over to Nat’s blog at threadsandbobbins.com
Monday was the first, official day of the Easter holidays, hurrah! And what I was craving above all else after a gruelling half term, was daylight and fresh air. So we headed to our nearest National Trust property, Dunham Massey with our neighbours. Bliss!
Tuesday: another day, another National Trust property! This time Erddig in North Wales, near my parents. We just about managed to dodge the hail and rain showers (seriously, Spring?!) by retreating indoors, only to be told that the whole place was shutting due to dangerous, high winds…
By Wednesday, I was itching to do some sewing, but children needed occupying so we improvised and did something together. Can you guess what?
Thursday was my Mum’s 68th birthday. I’d already got her some nice perfume, as requested, but couldn’t resist heading to our local flower shop for something pretty 🙂
Good Friday necessitated some children’s baking. Well, this is as close to baking as I ever get! We even made some celiac-friendly ones (at the far end on the small plate) for Grandad who was up for the Easter weekend.
Saturday was time to relax in front of the perfect, family film: Paddington. If you haven’t seen it yet, you must! When I watched it for the first time in the cinema I was sat next to a very old lady, who grabbed my hand involuntarily, she was laughing so much. My nine and six year olds enjoyed it just as much 🙂 Nicole Kidman makes an excellent baddie (in some seriously impressive heels).
And finally, Easter Sunday and the obligatory, garden egg hunt 🙂
Hope everyone else is enjoying a lovely, and most of all relaxing, Easter break,
