I seem to have blinked and Easter has appeared, not that I mind as with all the daffodils everywhere, it really is quite a delight AND the sun has even warmed up (when it pops out from behind the clouds)! I’ve been cleaning windows with my Showroom Shine glass cleaner, steaming the floor with my H20 and scrubbing the bathrooms with my ItWorks blocks (….where would I/we be without QVC??!!) We are also in the process of choosing a colour to paint our bedroom, I shared the current options on Twitter to varied reactions which was hilarious. I do love social media as we can all have random interactions not just on air but also at other times too so please if you fancy taking part do join in with me @Pipalive
Anyway, here’s something to make you smile. Earlier this week, I was driving through a local village and noticed that various trees were wrapped up in knitted bits and bobs!! As I got closer, I saw a little note saying that it was the WI Pixies!!! It was a really fantastic way to spread a bit of joy around. I love the WI and all it does, I think the majority of us have great WI experiences that we treasure from over the years and the great British institution continues its tradition of support, community and sharing together. Click here to read more about them and their fabulous work near you. The website alone shares recipes, crafting ideas, highlights their campaign work, all sorts! There are competitions, classes you can join for writing, photography, drama, walking, dancing, even circus skills… the list goes on and on of what they offer across the country. It’s an excellent body to get involved with and I love seeing it alive and kicking around my locality!
So the Easter holidays have arrived. The plan for us is Easter weekend with my sister down in Horsham and then off to the great British seaside for a week… I’m hopeful for sunshine but planning on packing wellies and anoraks, and gloves and scarves! It’ll be great fun no matter what the weather does, sometimes just the change of scenery and some fresh sea air is just the ticket! My Mum always used to say that a walk along the beach could blow all the cobwebs away and she wasn’t wrong!
I hope you have a lovely Easter weekend
