Easter Bounty

Firstly, sorry to anyone who was brought down by my pity party last Friday.
I don’t usually write about my health because we all have our crosses to bear (no Easter pun intended) & I’d rather talk about something nicer, but I just needed to vent.

Thank you so very, very much to everyone who left me a lovely comment, you brightened my day and I felt like each one was a warm hug.

This week I was diagnosed with arthritis in my hands, but I was so strengthened by everyone’s support that it has just made me feel more determined to keep going.

So thank you xxx

We had a quiet Easter morning here, just the four of us plus my mother.

The egg hunt, the chocolate, the hot cross buns, the chocolate, the kids on sugar highs and of course not to forget the chocolate.

Next week we’re all heading off to Port Macquarie for our annual week away, so this week will involve lots of packing and nagging the kids to do their own packing.
Which I will probably do myself on the night before we leave.

Usually, the term holidays here usually follow straight on from Easter, so when we booked our trip we thought it was during school hols.

Unfortunately, this year is different and we’ve discovered that our holiday is during the last week of term – ugh!
This is L’s first year of high school, and it means I’m missing out on parent teacher interviews.

– There’s no way we’re missing our trip though, I *need* that walking-on-the-beach, collecting-stones-and-seaglass time. Priorities, right?  😉

I hope you all had (or are having) a wonderful rest and recharge over the Easter break, and if you can’t rest at least recharged your creativity somewhat.

I’ll see you all after the 13th, when I should have some interesting news to share.. 🙂
