Our lovely friends Jeni and Dave came out last night for dinner and to stay over for Easter. We had a big curry buffet and ate until we could no longer bend in the middle! We waited five minutes and then found a little space for the yummy Key Lime Pie that Jeni made – always room for dessert! We slobbed around chatting and half watching little bits of films that were on the telly then one by one we all drifted off to bed.
We got up this morning to find that the Easter Bunny had been!! The kids found the eggs that were left on the coffee table (even Alexander couldn’t miss them with his ‘man-looking’ tendencies!). When I went to take the dog out for a pee I filled my pockets with foil covered chocolate eggs and scattered them round in the garden. I came back in and told the kids that they might want to have a look outside and they dashed out to see. They had collected and divvyed everything up in super-quick time!
We all got up and (not-very-quickly) organised. I packed a picnic in our eski (cool box) and we set off for Sovereign Hill. The kids and I had been there with Mum and Dad while they were over but Michael, Dave and Jeni had never been. It was a very different experience this time. When we were there last time it was BOILING, about 38 degrees, today the top temperature was about 22c, this made it a lot more comfortable to be walking around. Last time, there were only about twenty other people there, this time it was PACKED!
There were so many people, I don’t think they were even letting people do the dipping thing. Ah well, next time.
It was a great way to spend Easter day even if it was slightly unconventional!
