Easter Weekend

A wonderful weekend celebrating Easter with my daughter and Bertie, quality time spent catching up with each other.  Baking and chatting.



 
We also made bread and biscuits but no photo I don't know why...maybe because it was eaten so fast.  We had lost of fun teaching Bertie some new games and playing the old and familiar which he loves.
 

 
The horse had to be checked out and ridden again and again, something familiar that has been around all his life.
 
 
The soft play centre was visited on more than one occasion, even Granny had a go on the slides.
 
 
It wouldn't be a visit to Granny and Grandads without a visit to the fairground.
 
 
We managed to capture a glimpse of an owl sitting on the post at the end of the garden, which delighted us all.  We have seen him several times but never manage to get a photo.
 

 
I did manage to get a little bit of crafting done, a little work on Wilbur's quilt.  I have now assembled it using the vintage ironing board as a base.  I knew it would be useful for something.
 

 
I have, since the photo was taken pinned it all in place, I am now ready to start stitching once I have done the washing, made up fresh beds and sorted out the suitcases again.  Our trip to Holland planned so long ago is fast approaching.  We travel down to our daughters on Thursday who lives in Norwich and get the ferry from Harwich to the Hook of Holland on Friday.   Exciting times, more so as it is my birthday on Thursday as well.  Family is so precious and I value the time spent with them.  I now need to spend some time on my scrapbooks recording the wonderful things I have done , beautiful moments to treasure and reflect upon.
 
See you soon.

  22. Hello, I've just found your blog. vintage ironing board! What's a vintage ironing board? It looks a lot like my current one. What super pics of the owl, in daylight too. Those pics of soft play remind me of when mine were young.
