:: tidying the garden with my mum on Saturday
:: marveling at the many new shoots and plants that have made an appearance lately
:: long walks every day with Jack and assorted children, and my mum
:: eating lovely food all weekend
:: sorting through children's shoe boxes to see what does still fit (and making a list for essential purchases)
:: drifting in and out of wakefulness on Sunday morning, hearing the exited whispers from downstairs: little boys trying to find their one (and only) big chocolate egg
:: drinking coffee in the garden, and work on the dreaded ripple blanket
:: feeling the warmth of the sun on my back
:: smelling sun dried laundry
:: arguing with Annie who has a profound misunderstanding of the meaning of 'chore'. She shouts even louder than I do.
:: wondering why Sam thinks it is ok to smear margarine on Annie's face?
:: observing the same girl a few hours later, playing wonderfully with her little brothers.
:: sleeping with an open window for the first time this year
:: eating egg mayonnaise roll with the first chives of the year
:: keeping a reluctant Jack on the lead whilst the younger offspring is finding chocolate eggs Sam has hidden in the garden.
:: successfully installing an invisible zip in a dress I am making for Annie. It took a while but it is truly invisible. Who would have thought?
:: thinking about a new knitting project
How was your Easter weekend so far?
