Happy Easter! 2 Weeks Later Than Everyone Else!

Don’t worry, I haven’t been on another planet for two weeks or been in prison or anything.  I did know it was Easter more than two weeks ago just that me being me, haven’t been able to get onto the computer to update my blog as often as I would like to.  So, although I’ve been on Facebook and Twitter, I have been a bit lax with sorting out my blog.

Anyway, enough of that! Those of you who work around school term time may have already been back at school a week or like me have just returned back after the holidays.  I sent my two teenage children off on the school bus this morning which was a rude awakening for them. All those lie ins and late breakfasts will take their toll today. They are now on a new school bus as their original route has merged with another one.  This means another 15 minutes travelling time for them each way, a lot less time for my daughter to be faffing with her hair on a morning!  After that, I got myself off for work but it wasn’t too bad as I only work on a morning on a Monday. A nice gentle ease back in to work, so this is why I am finally getting organised!

Not very impressed with these carrots as the colour was a bit too pale but the Easter Bunny has to have something!

Pretty Spring flowers, I know they've been a bit late in coming this year but these cheered a few people up.
