Slap-bang in the middle of the Easter holidays was my Mum's birthday. I love to treat her because she is as wonderful as they come so it's great that we can make the day a bit special. This year, we went for an afternoon tea at home, complimented by homemade cakes & scones and lots of pretty details. I got to try out a few crafty makes that I'd had my eye on for a while too as well as indulging my love of baking so if Mum enjoyed herself, I can tell you I did too!
Unbelievably, the kids are finally about the return to school after what seems like almost a month off school. It seems like a month because, well, it has been a month. That's quite a long time and at the risk of sounding like a whining old woman, the juggling required to entertain kids, spend time with them and run your own business is not the easiest thing in the world. It feels like juggling vintage china whilst bouncing on a pogo-stick with no hands and joining in with a serious conference call all at the same time.
Anyway, that simile aside, now their attention is being diverted to the imminent arrival of summer term, I've actually got some time to blog again - hurrah. So, here's a little look at our Easter celebrations.
My Mum and Dad came round for Easter lunch and we feasted en famille. Of course, to me, celebrations offer the happy opportunity to craft with undeniable purpose so I got a little stylistically excited...
