Easter Weekend

Happy Easter! I hope everyone had a lovely weekend, with lots of fun, food and of course, chocolate. (Hope you're not sick of it yet!) I had a good weekend, although it didn't go to plan as such. I had planned a baking post and an Easter outfit post, but I was too ill to do both. I didn't even make it into my Easter outfit for my Sunday dinner with my family. I did however, get to spend some time with my family in-between resting, which is far more important than pretty pastel pink vintage skirts. And of course I will get to share that with you another time! I think I might still try my hand at making hot cross buns in the next few weeks too, that's if I don't turn into a giant one already. I think I've consumed enough to feed an army over the last two months!

 Over the last week I have been decorating our house in all manner of Easter goodies. I may have gone a little crazy at tescos when I saw their Easter craft section! I also got hit by the Pinterest inspiration bug, I was seeing so many posts of Easter wreaths, and as we had a load of Silver Birch twigs hanging around in the garden, I thought I would make my own. Pixie, my cat, thought this was a fantastic idea, it was pretty tricky trying it get the twigs into an egg shape while she was attacking them! I worked on the wreath for a few days, adding bits now and then. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out. 
As I mentioned I spent time with my family, my Auntie was visiting with two of her children, I love spending time with them. I made some Easter nest cupcakes for them on Thursday ready for afternoon tea on Good Friday and sorted out an Easter egg hunt, something we've been doing for the last few years. Luckily this year I counted the eggs correctly before hiding them. Last year we were still finding eggs weeks later!
Here are some photos I took over the weekend.


I'm looking forward to seeing other peoples Easter posts. What did you get up to?
