As it was only Christmas last week in my head, I can’t quite believe that spring has sprung and Easter has arrived. I have to say, a break is well needed from the day to day routine for all of us I think as we are still trying to shake off the remnants of winter colds in the hope that the warmer weather will bring better health. It appears to be somewhat inevitable that having a toddler (otherwise known as ‘germ magnet’) in the house means that we keep Lemsip shareholders in a pretty good financial position.
Speaking of the toddler, whilst I’m not a super fan of the concept of Christmas Eve boxes and Easter baskets (or perhaps I’m just tight), I have put together a little array of Easter themed treats for my small person this year. He appears to be the only 2.5 year old who has a fairly large aversion to chocolate can you believe. I sometimes doubt he’s actually my son for this very reason. So whilst I have included some sweet treats in his array of little gifts, I’ve gone for other options for him to play with instead.
The bunny ears from Sainsburys were an essential requirement – the boy loves dressing up and an alternative to his usual batman/superman hybrid fancy dress will make a pleasant change. I’m not sure whether the bunny Lego I’ve select is really intended for little girls but I’d like to think he’s not aware of gender conformities at the moment to really notice. The little wooden thumb puppet rabbit, also from Sainsburys, is pretty cute and I think he’ll carry this around with him all weekend. The Easter break also can’t go by without a Peppa Pig adventure so we’re planning on reading this to him on Saturday night ahead of a family Easter party on Sunday afternoon and Easter egg hunt at Doddington Hall on Monday.
I’m really looking forward to spending the weekend with my little family, it feels like it’s been a while since we’ve had some down time together. I’d love to hear about what your plans are for the weekend and what’s in your Easter baskets?
