Happy Easter to you all and your families!

What are your plans for today?

Hoppy Easter everybunny.

DD has already done her egg hunt. We're going to have Easter bunny butt pancakes for breakfast.  Church this morning, then back home to try and make a dent in tidying this pigsty of a house.  DD and DH have to pack suitcases today, since they leave tomorrow morning for 5 days on the NSW Central Coast; and I'm going to go and see Aladdin at the Adelaide Festival Theatre tonight.

Oh Aladdin sounds fun. Have a nice time at the show.

I’ve had coffee and an apple and cinnamon hot cross bun (it was OK but I wouldn’t buy them again). Am contemplating some chocolate now to get in the spirit. Egg hunt and family dinner coming up later today.

Happy Easter!

Lunch with family. I made a white chocolate and raspberry cheese cake for dessert.

I've got Lindt dark chocolate mint for me + over the moo chocolate ice cream.

Merry Egg Day.

Plans? Same as every day. Mess around doing nothing of consequence but being happy.

Happy Chocolate Day!

Our plans are to eat chocolate, rewatch Infinity War (seeing Endgame on Wednesday) and rest our weary muscles. We went to the zoo yesterday to see the new tiger cubs.

Plans are egg hunt, bake a cake, lunch at my parents, nap.

But DS has woken up with a fever, so I’m quite probably not going to lunch or having a nap.

Happy Easter everyone.

Egg hunt, kids are still hunting even though they've found them all ages ago 😂.

Half of us are sick so TV and as little as possible.

We have already consumed choc chip brioche hot cross buns and done the Easter egg thing.

We are clucking about home a bit. My mum n dad are unwell so we won’t catch up like we usually do.

My sister might pop in for coffee in the afternoon
Picnic lunch for just our little family

Hope everyone has a nice day. I've got some nice looking chocolate hot cross buns waiting to be eaten - haven't tried this brand before so I hope they're as nice as the price lol. Also got a bag of little Baci Easter eggs yesterday which are very nice.

Got a uni assignment to work on which is not going too well. Hope I can get a big chunk of it done today.

Happy Easter!

Hopefully this will be the last night DD wakes screaming about a giant rabbit wandering around our house.
(She was pretty happy to find the eggs this morning, though)

Sewing and eating the Hot Cross buns I made from scratch yesterday. PITA to make but taste soooo good.

Thank you and it is! But it’s the one where they sleep for 18 hours and you don’t sleep at all because you spent all night staring at them because you stressing they sleeping too much :(

And why are they always sick from the middle of the night on a public holiday!

My plans were go to church then come home and do egg hunt. The afternoon on the couch in front of Eddie Betts’ 300th game.

I slept in and missed church ...

I hope the rest of the day goes a bit more according to plan!

Happy Easter!!

This morning we went to church as a family, which I love (on most Sundays I go by myself), and this afternoon we’re going to my parents for an Easter egg hunt and dinner. A lovely day!

I wanted to go to church as a family, but DH got called in to work. So I’m catching up on housework. Awesome.


Posted 21 April 2019 - 11:16 AM

Happy Easter!

Kids are still asleep, only DH and I up.

I have made the bed, put a load of washing on, unloaded the dishwasher, fed the cat twice, the bird and guinea pigs (involves cutting up fruit and veg) and the chooks. Cat has finally gone for a nap.

Cooked DH and I poached eggs for breakfast.

Now I am eating chocolate.

After a shower, going outside to do some racking while I get the chance.

Family comnig for dinner.

Oh and traditionally every Easter for years, we have watched a few episodes of Little House on the Prairie and The Waltons.

I had my house packed up 2 weeks ago, my daughter and I are staying with my sister before heading down to nsw next weekend to spend time with my older daughter until August when us two leave for nz.

Today I've had some fruit hot cross buns for brekky and put a bunny put for me, sister,  niece and my daughter. As we speak everyone else is still asleep .

All family is interstate but never saw them at easter as i don't like doing anything and i lived 2 hours away.

Spent last 2 days away visiting family. Today just bludging or whatever. BBQ for dinner (may be inside due to weather).

Absolutely nothing just lazing around the Resort, Easter is next week for us.

#22 22Fruitmincepies

DD loved the egg hunt. Easter bunny DH hid way too many eggs, then helped DD count them, so I can’t just disappear some. Cake in the oven, DS has perked up with some nurofen, and I’m still in my PJs, so things are going well.

Took DS to the beach surfing this morning, weather is magic. I had a swim, he had a surf and now he’s off playing tennis and I’m cooking a sausage sizzle.

Easter long weekend is my favourite time of the year!

Happy Easter everyone 😊

Ha ha, yes picking the brains of the Toronto experts on tripadvisor today.

We leave three weeks today - 12th May.

ETA: How's your jet lag, is it true that it's not as bad if you've been closer to the pointy end?
