My favourite...things about easter

I love...

Chocolate.  Okay, so that's a given. But there's caramel ones, ones filled with M&Ms, ones with the most colourful wrapping, ones with dingly bells and stuck in mugs and...okay, so in the end its all just chocolate with a bumped up price tag, but still sooo fun!

The colouring in.  I must have drawn 50 A4 sized eggs in the most intricate myriad of patterns for the kids to colour in.  Okay, so I might have done one or two for myself.  Something soothing about colouring within the lines.

Watching the joy on the kids' faces as they find the not so discreetly "hidden" eggs on the landing, the stairs, the lounge.  (They're 4, 2 & 1 this year so if the Easter Bunny doesn't hide them in plain sight we might never find them!)  The video I took of the girls finding their eggs last year is THE most watched home movie we have.

The time off.  It's nice to have any excuse to get the family together, and with 4 days in a row Easter is always one of those few times we seem able to do it.

Hope those of you who've managed to have a break from work this weekend have a good one!
