Hope you all had a lovely long Easter weekend, like I did. It started on Thursday, when a couple of my colleagues and myself organised another Easter Egg Hunt at work, following last year's success. This year we also held an Easter Bonnet competition, which won me a prize for most creative Easter Bonnet.

Here are all the entries:

And here's my prize winning entry:

On Good Friday I made some delicious hot cross buns and cornflake nests:

Saturday I decorated my outdoor and indoor Easter Trees:

I covered the windowsill with a strip of knitted green fun-fur to look like grass which gave the living room a fresh look.

I felt a bit like mad scientist when dying some hard boiled eggs that my chickens had laid:

Sunday I enjoyed a lovely Easter breakfast:

And as it was a nice day wheatherwise, Jamie and I managed to get a lot of gardening done, leaving our garden looking like a little piece of heaven on earth.

Today I went to the local car boot sale, where I managed to find an old copy of John & Sally Seymour's Self-Sufficiency Guide amongst other things.

Anyway, the best thing is, that after these wonderful four days, I'm off work for another seven days, so finger's crossed that the weather's on my side so I can enjoy the rest of my long awaited break.
