โ€ƒDay before Easter ๐Ÿฃ 

Getting a cloth to cover the dining room table and feeling excited for all the lovely things to come on Easter day, everyone helped in getting the water colours ready assembled with paint brushes to paint funny faces on the dark brown chicken eggs.  Fingers trying to hold the delicate egg whilst turning it round and round.  Little fingers changing colour all the time. Then mother would gather them into an egg dish for tomorrow breakfast.

  Easter day 

Everyone up early to see the table very pretty and fully laid for breakfast. Intriguing boxes full of large chocolate eggs and boiled eggs with soldiers

โ€ƒAfter breakfast everyone opened the chocolate egg boxes and enjoyed crushing and breaking with a snap those hollow eggs.

โ€ƒAfter this excitement we girls had special presents of pretty Easter bonnets.

Trying them on excitedly and dancing about in them -  then

Dad would gather us all with the dog for a walk in the nearby Bluebell wood

โ€ƒNot forgetting to take our chocolate off we would go.

    Playing tag and losing our bonnets quite often after a long walk we'd be ready to go home, bonnets a little worse for wear. 

     Such a happy day with all the family, an ordinary day made special by kind and loving thoughts โค๏ธ 

 

LOVE TO HEAR YOUR MEMORIES TOO

Well I have treats in the basket, from my trip out @Cleoriff 

One of the treat is Henry Goode's 

Superbly soft Black Liquorice. Oh I love this.

I liked the Australian Liquorice bought from a shop in Town

today only visited Waitrose.

I hate Cadbury's chocolate.  Not enough Cocoa. 

It is good now that there is a cocoa % on the chocolate bars.

Lindt is good too.  Love Thorntons too.

I was trying to find the marzipan that Waitrose said they stocked, 

but didn't have any. I will get it eventually.

Enjoy your Easter Meal Cleo.

I am cooking tonight a Chinese Meal with Basmati Rice.

Had a wonderful day in the Garden.

Planning where I shall be planting my Tomatoes and Herbs etc.
