It’s the Easter holidays…

Forget the diet, let’s eat cake!


I have zero willpower which you’ll already know if you’ve read my previous posts.

So having picked up my little dude from school, we had cake at Orchard Layne, on the high street in Chipping Campden to celebrate the end of term.

This morning I went to his Easter service at church. It was so lovely! The choir sang beautifully a hymn with a gospel section in the middle, I was impressed. Some children played trumpets, others did readings.

I was sat between two school mama friends and we tried not to giggle or blub too noisily at the various parts that caught us. I was so proud of my little guy when he had to go up to collect an achievement certificate.

So now we have two and a half weeks of family fun times. If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know that I’ll be keeping expectations low and plans simple. That way, hopefully I can chill out, go with the flow and just enjoy the time with my boys.


To kick start our Easter break I’ve decorated our sideboard with some beautiful bright yellow daffodils from our garden. The rather impressive hare that the little guy has named Syrup, is from Orchard Layne. They have a few left if you want to welcome one in to your family, or some smaller decorative bunnies, Easter egg hunt signs and other cute decorations. The pretty pot of Narcissus is from our local greengrocer & florists on the high street, Drinkwaters.


The pretty felt ball garland was made to my colour specification by Stone & Co. I love how these garlands can be used around the house to decorate little areas. The white vases I bought recently from Ikea.


I’ve used our DIY alphabet garland loads now for creating little decorative phrases in the boys rooms, as birthday banners and now Easter. I bought mine from This Modern Life.

If you’re on Instagram, tag me in pics of your Easter decorations, I’d love to see.
