Don't you just love this time of year! Spring has sprung, the days are getting longer, lighter and warmer and Easter is just around the corner. I've known some Easter weekends to be so warm I've sunbathed. I'm not sure this year will be one of them though! I've been thinking abut the Easter holidays and what they mean for most families. A time for sorting the garden perhaps? Spending time with family and friends? Going on days out? Decorating?
Home improvements and shopping for new furniture comes to mind. As well as eating lots of chocolate!
I'm very keen to get the garden sorted this Easter holiday. The grass needs it's first cut and the boarders need digging over and weeding. Maybe we'll get some plants to add some colour too. If we had the money we would clear the garden completely, get it laid with artificial grass and buy a football goal for the monkeys. They love nothing more than playing football out there together but are slowly wrecking the grass which we have to re-seed each year!
Now that little monkey is keen to try football for himself instead of just watching his brother play, I'm thinking his transport themed bedroom needs updating. He was coming up for 2yrs old when we had his room re-done. Now in a bunk bed the toddler bed has long gone, but the theme needs updating.
He is 5yrs old now and I think a football themed room would really suit him. I love the personalised beds at Ollie and Leila. The customised footy bed looks fab.
Both monkeys could actually also do with more storage. Something like this footy tall bookcase would be ideal for their books, cuddly toys and bits and pieces. Hard wearing, great quality and built to last. I love the white.
Of course Easter isn't just about home decor and DIY or gardening. It's about having fun and eating Easter eggs! We love to do a little Easter Egg hunt for the monkeys and they each get spoilt rotten with eggs from their Grandparents and Aunts and Uncles. Personalised ones always go down a treat too!
I'm looking forward to the hot cross buns, Easter eggs, and maybe even some fish as is traditional on Good Friday. How will you be spending your Easter?
