I feel a little late posting my Monday happy things but we’ve had a busy long weekend away. Now we’re happily back at home and unpacked and I feel I have a few moments to reflect on last week.
– I loved watching my 3 year old decorate her Easter bonnet. She chose a pretty purple straw hat and decorated it with felt animals from Hobbycraft. This year she really enjoyed taking part in the Easter bonnet parade at her nursery.
– Over the Easter weekend we ate at The Bell in Rode which was lovely. We found out we were in the village where the infamous 19th century murder took place at nearby Road Hill House, immortalised in The Suspicions of Mr Whicher by Kate Summerscale. Needless to say we drove past the house to take a look.
– We took full advantage of family babysitters to go to the local cinema. It was a real pleasure to see an adult film, not that I didn’t enjoy Frozen Fever and Cinderella with my children last week. We watched ‘The Divergent Series: Insurgent’ as we had really enjoyed the first film. As soon as I got home I downloaded the third book Allegiant on my Kindle. I’m surprised I like this kind of young adult/science fiction writing but I really do. I can’t wait to find some reading time.
– Whilst we were down in Wiltshire we found time to see the Hatched, Matched, Dispatched and Patched! Exhibition at the American Museum in Britain. I love their quilt collection and the special exhibition was fab. There was a special Easter Yarn Bombing Trail which the children loved and was a great excuse to spend some time outdoors.
– There was plenty of time for some sewing too. I finished the binding on my #ukminiquilt and made two Easter kits from Hobbycraft too!
