A lovely Easter …. and a peek at my Curlywurly Cottontails pattern.

We had a lovely Easter.  The weather was reasonably kind to us – cold, but dry, so our Egg Hunt was able to go ahead as planned.  Ben and Daisy went up into the garden with Rosie and Dan to help hide all the chocolate goodies, but I am sorry to have to tell you that, after only a few minutes they were returned to the kitchen in disgrace.

 Ben had spotted that the eggs were being placed in nooks and crannies just out of his reach.  Clearly he felt this was totally unsatisfactory but, due to his rather lazy nature, he didn’t try to jump up and reach them.  Oh no …. he simply bumped his big furry body into the bushes and trees holding eggs and gave them a good shake – which definitely achieved the desired results as far as he was concerned.  Luckily his bad behaviour was spotted before he and Daisy had chance to consume his ill-gotten gains and that was when they were both returned to the kitchen in disgrace!

So there were lots of goodies left for Emily and Oliver (my friend Lisa’s twins) to discover.  I think they were pleased with their treasures!  Then after lunch everybody wanted to relax – except for the youngest member of the family ….

 Who was quite determined to stay awake!  Eventually even she was persuaded to lie quietly for a cuddle …
