Last weekend Aria and I went to the cinema to see Beauty and the Beast while the boys went to the football match. We had a lovely time and I know I spoke about it last week, but I hadn’t shared the photo and I really like this photo. The rest of the weekend was filled with Easter fun. I always set up a wee Easter hunt the night before for the kids waking up in the morning. I just place little cheap eggs and a couple of small gifts around downstairs for them to search for in the morning. It’s become a lovely tradition and one the children all look forward to it. Look at their wee faces in the above photo. They are so excited to run around searching for eggs. We may still be finding the odd one or two a week on.
The weather was terrible and I’d planned a picnic lunch with some friends at another national trust property to do their Easter egg hunt. We have done this for several years and it’s always fun. However, it poured. The picnic was abandoned for a living room one. We still went and did the egg hunt as it was indoors at Pollock House. Always good when it results in a chocolate bunny at the end of finding the clues. Finished off with some fun Easter crafts. Family dinner followed at Robert’s sisters for a roast. It was a lovely end to a nice day.
Both Robert and I were off on Monday, Lucas had a party and the rest of us just hung about. We did a bit of shopping and spent some time together and had a nice dinner before it was back to work and school and nursery on the Tuesday.
It’s been a long week for a four day week. Tyler has been quite grumpy and cheeky, think he’s tired. Work has been super busy and a bit of a pain, so much so I told my boss I was changing careers. I am fed up. I was thinking fortune teller, or something else. I have a crystal ball already. What do you think? Obviously my dream job would be to write full time, but I am still editing my novel, so that’s all a pipe dream.
Then came Wednesday evening, when the guinea pig died. Tyler was so upset. It was his guinea pig after the other one dying a few years back. It was a sad day. Plus I think Twilight misses her a lot as the two of them had become good friends in the short time they’d been together. She loves her boxes does Twilight.
I had the day off work on Friday to catch up with some stuff and did some writing and planning while Aria was in nursery for a few hours, then we had a wee afternoon of painting nails and baking before getting the boys from school. This weekend it’s back to football matches both days and training. Still the sun has been shining today, Saturday.
What have you been up to?
