Happy Easter! Early this year (the last time it was this date was 1913; the earliest Easter day can possibly be is 22 March - the last time being 1818, so there’s something interesting for you). Am really, really hoping that the threatened snow stays away because my cousin’s getting married on Monday.
Some more excellent news: my cousin-to-be passed her exams and is now a qualified doctor. Go, Lucy!
Dad and my stepmum came over for lunch yesterday – and he was having a good day. Moments like this are going to become rarer, so this was one to treasure. Madam played a bit of guitar, then bullied me into accompanying her on piano so she could sing ‘Lord of the Dance’ (her choir song). Sadly her guitar teacher has given up, but she says she’ll wait until starting her next school in September and putting her name down for lessons then.
There is still a pile of chocolate eggs in my study. However, they do not belong to me. The Easter Bunny took me at my word when I said ‘no chocolate for me, this year’ – and even though I know this was the sensible thing to do (will have to brave scales next week – after the wedding rather than before) there’s a little bit of me with a wobbly bottom lip. (However, I brought the children up to share so am sure I will get a smidgen!)
It’s officially school holidays for the next fortnight. I have a hideous schedule – but I’m hoping I can remember how I managed to be Superwoman two years back and will pull this one off…
