Easter and a parcel in the post!

I'd like to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone whose made the effort to leave me a comment on my blog it's really nice to read your comments and I hope you all re visit my blog soon. I hope you all had a really Happy Easter!

Before I went on holiday I entered Jessica's jug giveaway and to my delight when I got home there was a message waiting, I'd won! I haven't won anything for donkeys years so I was really chuffed! Look what the postman brought me this week the cutest jug you ever did see all beautifully wrapped in pink!

Jessica also put in some extra goodies these pastel mini egg decorations some pom pom decorations and some really pretty lace trim and ribbon. (not pictured) It was so nice to receive something from a fellow blogger I've been admiring her blog for a while The White Verandah it's in my favourites list do go visit it's lovely.

Thanks to Jessica I had enough eggs to do an Easter tree it's a bit bare I've seen far better ones on here but at least I made the effort hey I shall have to look out for some reduced decorations for next year.
We had the family round for Easter dinner Stevens parents and my Brother and Sister In Law and guess what we had?......... Turkey! I know not very Easterery! We had a turkey left over from Christmas don't ask it's a long story. Anyway after tossing several saucepans around my tiny kitchen whilst attending to the needs of my two young children and turning my kitchen into what looked like a bomb site it turned out very well! It even snowed outside while we were eating just to add more Christmas to the occasion anyway it was nice to all get together and we now have loads of turkey leftover! So it's turkey for tea, supper and Stevens pack up!

Hello Sarah, how lovely to discover a new, beautiful blog, especially from someone in my neck of the woods (we're close to the Satffs/Derbys border). Thanks so much for popping by to say hello. I've just had my coffee enoying your lovely holiday snaps, what a gorgeous, fairytale cottage in the Cotswolds, your little two look like they're having a fantastic time. Well done on winning Jess' giveaway too. Be back soon
