On Thursday I had the most wonderful surprise.
The postie had left me an unexpected parcel. Maria @Dotty's Daughter had sent Lily and myself an Easter goodie pack. I had commented on one of her IG pics of the Rabbit that Lily loves them and she parcelled it up and sent it for us along with some sweet treats and a decoration for my tree.
Maria you are so kind and thoughtful. Thank you so much.
I also joined in with Kimberley's Easter Swap and was partnered with Laura and she sent me these fabulous gifts.
I love them all Laura thank you xxx
Lily baked the cakes for Easter this year Bunny cakes, Egg nest cakes and Pigs in Mud cakes. we loved them and they were very tasty(there are some left).
She even bought me an Easter bouquet. 

I hope you've all had a great Easter.

Spring has Sprung

Spring is finally here it was such a sunny morning I thought I would make some pancakes with frozen summer berries and a coconut yoghurt as a treat after the school rush.
They were delicious!
We've been out in the garden clearing up from winter and planning for the summer. 
Even a ladybird has ventured out on the Hellebores.
 My DH thinks I have gone mad as I've decided the a lot of the plants should go as they have seen better days. I think he would just leave everything where it is, but quite a few of the plants have seen better days and some are just far too invasive.

This week I've got a couple of Swap parcels to finish and post out, so I'm going to be a busy little bee wrapping and packing.

I can't believe how quickly Easter has come round, it doesn't seem like five minutes since Christmas. I'd better add getting the Easter decs out to my list of jobs to do this week or it will all be over before I realise it.

Have a fabulous week.
