Easter Fun



This post has an overload of
Easter love!!

I must start by saying a belated
Happy Birthday
to the lovely Mr B.....
Yesterday we combined his
birthday party with
our Easter celebrations.

I love Easter.
I love Easter decorations.
I love family 'get-togethers'.
I love celebrating new spring life
after dark winter days.

I have also had great fun playing
with my Easter photos.

Bunnies, present from Miss B, eggs in a jar, zinc bucket from Miss B,
flowers from Mr B, Easter tree and lovely scrummy marshmallows!!

Flowers, eggs, chicks, bunny, Easter tree and delicious chocolate eggs!!

But the bestest best thing about Easter was
having our family here to celebrate

From the very young

 my lovely dog, Ollie

to Mr B
who was worn out
from all the celebrating

(and as you can see from
his bulging cheeks, all the eating!!)

And finally ...

I made a candle in a pretty

It was so easy to make.....
details to follow in my next post.

and finally, finally
a very, very belated
thank you again to Jooles at
for encouraging me to start
blogging - I really, really love it!!!

Take care

    1. He is adorable Anne but very naughty. Yesterday he opened my kitchen bin and ate the contents! He's not feeling too happy today!! xx

  5. Love your dog - there seems to be lots of spaniels in blogs.

    1. Ollie is the first spaniel we have had. He is the most intelligent and loyal dog I have owned. In my class at school, we have a new book called the Top Ten of Everything - I was surprised to read that the English Springer Spaniel is in the top ten most dangerous dogs in the UK!! Surely that is a misprint? xx
