Quiet Easter

Well this has been a very quiet Easter break for us. M and the Boys helped Miss Mouse to move all of her belongings to the new Mouse House, and he managed to do his back!  Still in bed and moaning and complaining like a good 'un, so I know he is OK lol.

I did run away on Easter Sunday to take little Miss K 
on an Easter Egg Hunt at beautiful Mussenden Temple, we should not have been, but we were surprised at the greed of children nowadays. The older ones took off at a great rate of knots and filled pockets and arms with as many eggs as they could carry, leaving the smaller ones with nothing, little Miss K was so disappointed at not finding any eggs, another small child had two, so gave one to her. This was lovely, but not the point, an Easter Egg Hunt is supposed to be about finding eggs, not relying on the kindness of others, who have been properly brought up, to share.

She loved getting an egg, but it would have been even nicer if she had been able to actually find it herself.

So that she had some nice memories of the day, I took them to the beach afterwards, like me, she loves the beach, in any weather.
Rock pooling is an all time favourite of ours, I have never grown out of the fascination of what lives in these little left over pools of water. It seems that no matter what age you are, at some time in your life, if given the chance, curiosity will get the better of you, and staring into these little worlds will always be one of the things to do at the beach.

Then there is chasing Daddy to clean off your sandy hands on his clothes, this is always a good game, just how much sand can you transfer to his jeans?

I am not sure who enjoyed this game the most, her, him or me! 

I really do need to go and do some crafting sometime soon, it seems like ages since I sat at my desk, and it is need of a good tidy up anyway, I had thought that I would be a good girl and use the scraps for card making, you know the idea, use the scraps before you start to cut into more pristine paper, instead of putting them all carefully into a drawer, never to see the light of day again until you have the grand purge because you cannot get any more into the drawer. Well it is clearly not working for me, so into the drawer all the bits will go again :)

It is terrible that children have become so greedy and thoughtless. Glad the wee one got an egg though I agree it would have been more fun to have found it rather than be given it.

Looks like you had some nice weather over the weekend - it was grotty here...cold, wet and very dull.

Toni :o)
