This Easter I Have Loved...



...chocolate...the sea...six little cousins all together...beach huts and big skies...watching Bella and Angus play with the toys from my childhood and sleep in our old bunk beds...daisies...Easter egg hunts...the beach...pavlova...painting pebbles...great big family lunches family for fourteen....lie ins...time. Time to relax and just be with family.

***********************************************

I'll be taking a little blogging break from now until next weekend while John and I leave the children with my parents and enjoy a short break in Copenhagen to celebrate our tenth wedding anniversary. I am more than just a little bit excited! But don't worry, I will be back soon to bore you with many, many photos of our trip. Bye for now. x

Vintage little people sets are just the absolute best, we have the ferry, the garage and the airport. Your Easter sounds perfect but a few days away sounds like absolute bliss. Enjoy every minute and I for one look forward to living vicariously through your travels as the most exciting trip I am making this year is two streets away to a rental house for a few months! mel x

No girls in the house and I didn't dare buy this Hello Kitty for myself ;), so cute!
Love the photo of the beach huts.
And love that little Fisher Price house, so sweet, and so special to have some toys from your childhood to pass on to your own children!
Have a lovely lovely break. We celebrated our 10th anniversary last October, left the boys with my mum and spent a week in Italy, it was pure bliss.. And the lie-ins!!!! Enjoy!!

Well Hello! said...

Gillian,

When I saw the Fisher Price school and house, I pressed my finger against the computer screen and exclaimed. A noise came out of my mouth. I can't explain it.

Have a wonderful time away with your husband.

Looks like such a fun time, I love times when all the family gets together, I too live far from most of my relations so it doesn't happen that often, also the pavlova looks amazing!

Oh my, the Fisher Price school - ah, the bell, the chalk board, the magnetic letters, the bird next, I remember it very well! One of my most treasured toys. My sisters and I had it as a big 'joint' Christmas present 30+ years ago. We did actually share it although my younger sister 'owned' the camper which I was dead jealous of!
Have a lovely break.
