Our first Easter

Well this year we have decided that the past 11 years of traditions regarding Easter have been fun but we are going to make some traditions of our own as a family
Mr P's family have no expectations of an on mass gathering and my family seem to see these occasions as the only time they group, which gets a little much at times.
This is the year that we will make some traditions of our own... and its really exciting

I have noticed a lot of beautiful Easter decorations on the blogs and I decided to make some of my own, I was hoping Jamie would help me but alas she went to stay with mum and dad and attend Easter bingo and then on the Friday go to a Yeovil football match so I was left to my own devises....

I popped around to my mum and dads yesterday to drop off her Flowers and card and collect Jamie and while I was there I snipped a little yellow scrummyness from her garden to hang my egg creations on

The Kerria (Jews Mallow) is beautiful and I think I might add some of this to my garden as it is so fluffy and pretty

and then I added my six decorated eggs

I have had a lovely relaxed morning, Jamie and Danny are playing upstairs and I even got a lie in till 8am, I have had time to jot down a quick word to all of my blogland friends and now I had better get on, I have veg to prepare for our roast dinner, and Mr P needs to don his fluffy tail and get out in the garden to hide some eggs and Easter gifts that we have bought for Jamie and Daniel

This afternoon we are off to West Bay for a stroll along the beach and a little picnic on the seafront wall....

Easter Blessings to you all
and I hope your days are as chilled out and enjoyable as you wish them to be

Take care

Hope you enjoyed your stroll on the sea front, did it include ice cream?
As for collecting wool for your crochet blanket. Mine didn't take as much as I thought. It took 800g and it was bigger in the end than I thought it would be. So you could have a crochet blanket for as little as £16. Try and get yarn with a percentage of wool in it, it makes it much warmer than all acrylic.

Wow! Beautiful eggs. You are very talented. I should have spent more time decorating and less time running around this holiday. I can tell you enjoyed it more than I did. I will learn from your example. Have a great day! Liz
