I hope you had a wonderful weekend? Come and share your Easter happy and home moments.
The long bank holiday is always a great time to do some baking. We found the perfect recipe for chocolate cripsy cakes via Nigella’s How to be a Domestic Goddess. We decorated eggs ready to roll with the cousins, and looked back at pictures from previous years for inspiration.
Despite feeling a bit poorly, we managed to hang up the little wooden eggs we bought last year and hide some rabbits around the house. I always loved finding little chocolate eggs when I was a child, so the arrival of the Easter Bunny is one of my favourite Spring traditions.
I had planned to do more towards my office makeover, but I just haven’t been well. Not flu, but a really draining cold and cough which has left me needing lots of naps. I did decide to spray paint the filing cabinet from red to silver while the carpet was up. I was pleased as this saved me having to empty the cabinet and lug it downstairs and outside. You can see an office update here, including an explanation of the magnetic plaster.
There will be no Happy and Home next week, enjoy the rest of the holidays.
