I was woken again this morning by the sun peeping through a gap in the curtains (much nicer than the nasty alarm thats out of work till next week). I was quickly up & out of bed - can't waste a minute of that blue sky & sunshine.
Apart from the constant loading/unloading of the washing machine there were more exciting things to do. We were expecting visitors for lunch, a sister & her 2 children.
Cakes were needed and these scrummy lemon ones were made using the receipe from the Hummingbird Bakery book - that book has far too many nice things in it;
When my sister arrived she brought a surprise with her - my baby sister (who is actually 26). She arrived bearing Easter Eggs for the boys - think they are late for this year rather than early for next ;)
Its my nieces birthday later in the week so as it was ok with her Mum she had her pressie early - she was thrilled with her dolly & things from this post.
After lunch had been eaten it was time for a sweetie hunt in the garden - this was supposed to be for chocolate eggs but the shops sold out rather quickly this year. Instead it was for a various sugary treats which even my 2 large boys where happy to hunt for;
Now where has Auntie Vicki hidden them all?
Look I've found all mine :)
Both the little ones love playing in our garden as it is big space compared to theirs at home AND it has a huge collection of swords (which kept the 3 boys amused) and a swing which my niece can spend hours on;
Hope you are all enjoying the sunshine & school holidays?
See you soon
