Me on Easter Monday

After an Easter Sunday of eating more than enough chocolate, Me on Monday sees me buring off a few calories and test driving the new lawn mower ...
The left hand side of the garden looked like it was covered in confetti, and I assumed that it was all blossom from the cherry tree

But when I looked closer, I could see that it was in fact tiny little white flowering plants which were so pretty it seemed a shame to mow over them! 

Wasn't it a lovely long Easter weekend?  I seem to have spent most of the last 4 days eating.  Hot cross buns on Friday, out for dinner at Carluccio's with friends on Saturday, Roast lamb with all the trimmings on Sunday and vast quantities of Easter egg chocolate today.  It was great to have all the family over for Sunday lunch,

As you can see, even Jon came home!  And this week's selfie only took one try to get everyone in the shot and looking the right way, unlike the first one we took last week!
 
Just a quick Me on Monday this week, but in a day or two I could be back with a progress report on the latest sewing project.  The school Easter holidays have begun - two weeks off work.  I predict a lot of sewing will be going on.  Well, a girl has to make the most of some paid spare time doesn't she?
 
Let's give a big post Easter wave to Sian who's sporting a rather smart pair of hand knitted socks this week.  If we ask nicely, I think she might offer to make us all a pair too!

That's a lovely photo of you all! And your garden is looking most Spring-like already. It's quite distressing how few calories get burnt off in an hour's energetic mowing!

It's lovely to see you all smiling together in that picture. It means a lot, doesn't it?

And you are, so far, the only one of us quick witted enough to give today its proper name in your title. Why didn't I think of that?!

I hope the sewing goes well this week and that you get a nice relaxing break to set you up for the new term

It sounds like your Easter was lovely. Our weeping cherry tree is starting to bud out too - spring is here!!

What a lovely famfie. We went for a lovely walk on Sunday and I think David was either pulling a silly face or looking in the wrong direction on most of the photos. This week is the end of our Easter break you must have started yours a week later than ours. Have a lovely holiday - had intended to do some sewing but so far not managed any.

Enjoy your break ~ TBC has another two weeks, with this week being spent with Granny (on his own) ~ hooray!

Sounds like a lovely weekend. I was so pleased when the sun got its act together and gave us a lovely warm day on Monday! The boy and I did a few bracing walks to try and burn those extra calories we had consumed the last few days!

I saw a sewing project pop up on your IG. Looking forward to seeing it!
