Happy Easter Everyone - I know its a little premature but as the children are on holiday it feels like its a good time to start celebrating.
I have started the Easter Tree by cutting some Lilac twigs and hanging my very sparse collection of eggs - though I am planning on making some more tonight whilst watching Project Runway and The Apprentice (I'm not addicted to reality TV really.....)
Yesterday afternoon the post van pulled up - hubby said what have you ordered now - truthfully nothing I said indignantly.
I was so excited when he knocked the door - it was my swap parcel from Lissy .
It was in a large box and all wrapped so beautifully, each packet individually with ribbons and embellishments. Sorry Lissy for not taking photos pre unwrapping but the excitement overtook me.
Here are my beautiful gifts including a book, dusters, choccies, ribbon, pencil, chicks, pegs... there were so many.
And this gorgeous mug - I am going to have a lovely cup of tea in it just after finishing this.
Thanks Lissy - I love my Easter Swap. XXXX
The time is nearly here as the T house descends into cricketing chaos.
Master T has been addicted to cricket since he was 6 so this is our 7th summer.
Last year he started to be selected for some of the adult teams at our club so some weeks we had four or five matches.
Hubby started to play and managed a couple of games at the end of the season before his Ham String went !!
Yesterday Master T wanted to go "to the nets" to practice as its less than 2 weeks before the season starts - luckily there is a lovely town close to the club with 5 charity shops - so Miss T, her friend and I spent a lovely afternoon perusing.
I was thrilled to find this lovely Granny Square crochet blanket - my photo really doesn't do it justice - the colours are wonderful and it is quite heavy so will be really cosy.
I think the green and red make it look so "gypsy" - I have asked Hubby if he will make me my very own gypsy caravan for it to go in........
I checked the price and couldn't believe it was just 50p.
Anyway, must get on - need to make more decorations for Easter Tree, Miss T is coming back from her friends soon and Master T now not feeling well and lying on sofa.
We picked up a pair of these chairs just before Christmas from a local junk shop and I am determined that before the end of the holidays they will be white and have a seat pad - so off to find the flatting paper.
Speak to you all soon and have a great Easter - DON'T go easy on the chocolate - there you have permission to go mad.
