Hi, hi, c’mon in. Your timing is perfect, as the boys are still at the cinema (watching Rio 2) and I’ve just made lunch and the teapot’s still hot.
How are you and yours? We’re all fine and ready for the Easter holidays to be over. We’ve packed a lot in, but I do feel that three weeks off is a week too long. Especially when you consider that we have a Bank Holiday in just over a week’s time and half-term in a month’s time.
How was your Easter? Were you away or did you stay home and perhaps have visitors? The Boy Child and I were in the US, as you probably know, and he was thoroughly spoiled by the American Easter Bunny. A whole bucket of stuff from his friends’ mum and another bag full from their Nana. (But, funnily enough, no Easter egg.)
He’s going to be very disappointed next year!
Do you like chocolate or are you one of those
strange rare people that can take it or leave it? I’ve noticed that as I’ve got older, I’ve no time for designer chocolate; give me Cadbury’s Fruit and Nut and I’ll be a happy bunny, if you’ll excuse the pun.
Would you like anything else to eat? Let me refill your mug, it won’t take me a moment.
What’s that? What was the outcome of The Boy Child’s Review? I wish I knew. It seems that the Panel needed some questions answered by the school in early April. Then, of course, they don’t sit in the school holidays. If we’re lucky, his Review may be looked at again tomorrow. But I’m not holding my breath. The whole thing is demoralising.
Let’s change the subject. Let’s talk about scrapbooking, you know it’s my favourite past time. I have some lovely paper from October Afternoon called Travel Girl and I’m itching to start using it. No prizes for what I’ll be scrapping in the next few weeks. Do you have any projects on the go? Did I mention my dabbling with making a quilt square? No? Never mind, I’ll save it for next time.
