Easter

Jonas has been working on growing a delicious, juicy carrot for the Easter Bunny. Well it was a thoughtful gesture but he was pretty sure this cute, teeny, tiny little carrot would not translate into a truck load of chocolate- he covered his bases by supplementing the meal with a shop bought beauty.









Well it looks like it was way more than one Easter Bunny could manage- and what a mess!! I guess it will be up to me to clean up after him!!

Let' see if Joe's generosity and thoughfulness paid off.






Hidden under the blanket is the real goodies!!!


Unfortunately in the darkened, early hours of the morning Joe thought that all he got was a couple of boiled eggs and a 'trick' trail of mini eggs. The disappointed bubbled into despair before we quickly revealed the true treasure. Oh dear...'epic fail' Easter Bunny!!!





Yes this is the true state of Campbell's bedroom floor this morning- he prefers to keep his current favourites on hand and easy to find ;/





Those boiled eggs were appreciated in the end- one can only eat so much chocolate for breakfast.


After the very, very early morning excitement we enjoyed a day of stillness. I spent the day trying that on for size and didn't do too badly. I read a tonne of foody magazines and planned dinners for the next fortnight- I am terribly excited about having time to shop for good food and then cook it with love. We stayed in pyjamas, read the papers and ate chocolate. I did venture out for an afternoon walk in the sun so I could listen to another podcast- chocolate for my spirit.




The boys enjoyed playing in the sun, reading, watching TV and eating chocolate!

Joe also set up a game of memory so he could flog me- quite convincingly too.

A chat with a surprise kindred spirit gave me something to reflect on and offered some clarity. Thank you lovely Soo for your generous heart and thoughtful appreciation of the things in life that really matter. 
Being still is good for the soul. I think I will try to do it more often :)

    1. Thank you Ronnie xxx People were complaining that they couldn't find where to follow which meant they couldn't comment. I hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend. Can you believe how grown up Joe is looking? I have taken all of term 2 off work to work with him at school on the program given to us by the Selective Mutism Clinic- I am so excited about finally being able to do something!!!
