Behind the scenes

Our dining table has disappeared! – Easter update

Hi, how are you?

It’s been a strange sort of a year.  One full year since our first lockdown here in the UK.  It’s almost Easter weekend as I’m writing this, our second one where our usual plans are out the window and I’m wracking my brain to try and make it special.

I asked my 15 (almost) year old if she was bothered about an egg hunt this year, fully expecting her to say she’s too old for childish things.

That was not the response I got!

So, two boxes of small eggs are on order.

Eldest teen isn’t into childish games anymore, but does like an easy life so will probably give in to her sisters pestering and join in.

Do you have plans for Easter weekend?  Please share them in the comments, I’m looking for inspiration!

We’ve found a new way of managing traditional gift exchanging times such as birthdays and Easter.  It’s been hard not being able to visit family as we normally would, and I’ve found myself buying more chocolate eggs than usual as requests come through for us to arrange on relatives behalf.

This means I currently can’t see our dining table.  I’m sure it’s still there, but it appears to be more like a seasonal aisle of Aldi. I’m hoping the teens will find space in their rooms for them so I can get some order in the chaos.  We need some space anyway as I bought some Easter craft supplies for a mum/daughter bonding time – will let you know how that goes!

Galaxy – my favourite ever chocolate, just in case you were curious!

In other news, today is vaccine day for me. I’m nervous, not only because it means going somewhere I’m not familiar with, which always triggers my anxiety, but also because I know some friends have experienced side effects.  I was ill with the virus at the beginning of December, 10 days of dizziness, exhaustion, sickness and bed rest and I don’t want to go through it again.  I will keep you updated on our socials if you want to know how I get on.

So, this weekend is going to involve chocolate, family and a lovely roast.  I’ve also planned a cheesecake to test out my new baking tin – wish me luck!
