That's it - after today I have one more day of work and then I'm away to enjoy Easter with my family.
We're not religious so Easter will be a time of chocolate and enjoying spring. Car has already been asking about when the Easter egg hunt will be but mostly about the chocolate.
It's lovely having 3 days off work (we get the day after Easter Monday off as well) but I've also taken extra days off to spend some time with the girls, Neb and everyone over the rest of the half term holidays. We're spending time at home, enjoying the hopefully nice weather and then off to the in-laws and to a family event in Winchester for the rest of the holidays.
I was thinking last night what traditions we have for Easter. We don't go to church but every year the girls give us cards - lovingly made in school. I think I best keep an eye out for some personalised cards for the kids. There are some lovely ones over at Dom and Geri , and they have a good range of Easter cards to offer as well as Father’s day cards, which is another event on the horizon.
The other tradition that we started when Bel was young was an Easter egg hunt - why spend money going on one when you can have one at home. Our garden isn't very big but we do manage it between there and the house -or if its raining the house.
Of course we also have the giving of Easter eggs, a tradition which the girls gladly love. We've been good this year and only got them one each but am sure that many more will wing their away to us. Bel is not fussed about Easter eggs and last year we may have had to help her out a bit (ahem!)
What Easter traditions do you have? Are you looking forward to the long weekend ( I am as we have wine to enjoy with it!)
