This Easter bank holiday weekend we haven’t actually got lots of busy plans, (which suits us fine). We have just got back from a few days up North visiting my Mum and my Sister and so it is really nice to land home and catch up. Our plans for the holidays include relaxing together, hoping the weather stays dry (please, please)…

So, here we are. Harry has chicken pox (boo!) and is covered in spots. Bless him. He is doing OK though. He is a little itchy so I have been giving him Piriton to ease it as he won’t let me put Calamine Lotion on. He’s playing and seems OK so we are just waiting for them to disappear now.…

They thought it was brilliant! Last Easter they were a bit too little to be involved in activities like this, however this year (at 2.5 years…

Over Easter we will be having a meal, around a large table, with the family. Harry & Lottie are now at a great age (2.5 yrs)  where they can sit at the table, enjoy everything we eat and chat to us as they go! At the Easter table we will probably have roast lamb or beef perhaps, with roast vegetables…
