I SO wanted to bring out the kids Easter baskets, shred up paper to make a nest in them like we used to, leave out some carrot and water for the Easter Bunny, etc! I do miss the fun of these occasions that is had when you have small children! However, the Easter Bunny did still come to my big kids – just minus the aforementioned fun bits!
It’s been a much nicer long Easter weekend than expected. We didn’t get the torrential rain and storms as predicted! I’m happy about that, not only because it allowed us to get outside and tidy up the garden and get all the washing dry, but for all of you that went away (particularly campers)!!
Good Friday was spent relaxing, washing, doing a bit of weeding in the garden and cooking! As we do every year on Good Friday, we had fish for dinner!
Easter Saturday was spent getting lots of jobs done around the house and garden and also included bathing both the dogs (Instagram phone snap evidence below)! I cooked up a Balinese Style Pork Belly Roast for dinner. It was my first time cooking it and OMG it was so delicious!
Easter Sunday was an early start for us as we had to leave home at 5am to drop our daughter to the airport. She and friends have gone to Melbourne till Thursday for a bit of adventure during their University break. Back home for breakfast, a quick Happy Easter phone snap posted to Instagram (see below), and then off over to Mum and Dads with the rest of the family for Easter Sunday lunch.
Easter Monday – a day at home, more jobs done around the house and garden – washing and lots of pruning and hosing. We went for a late afternoon walk at the waterfront with my sister and her husband and then home to cook up a yummy salmon dish for dinner!
How was your Easter? Did you stay home and catch up on some jobs and/or chillax or did you go away? Tell me all about it! Are your kids still young enough that you can do all the fun Easter Bunny stuff?
Ciao for now,
