I have had a busy day. In fact, if I sit for more than a few minutes, I do believe I may never get up again, so this will be a bitty post. A trip into town to pay the bills, a wander round the shops, and then home to clean. I have 4 friends coming to lunch tomorrow, and as Jean and I are on coffee duty after the Easter service tomorrow morning, I will be late home. That means lunch will not be at lunchtime. It may be early afternoon. We will see.
So, once the floors were mopped, I left to go and bake the goodies for church at Jean's house, seeing that she actually has a working oven. A great asset, a working oven. She baked the 72 cup cakes, I made the chocolate cornflake nests. She put the little eggs in the nest, I iced the cakes. She made cheesy crosses and bunnies, and I made coffee. And washed things.
And we watched the boat race on TV. What a disaster. It is an annual event - Oxford vs Cambridge universities row down the Thames. Today, a STUPID protester swam out into the water, and the race had to be restarted, and then Oxford lost an oar, and it was all over. Cambridge won, but one of the Oxford men had to be taken off the boat for medical help. I am sure you can see the whole sorry saga on the BBC website.
I do realise that this is too much information, but it is so long since I entertained and I LOVE doing the tables. Don't you like the place settings? Well, the side-plates. I crocheted raffia into long chains, and then rolled the serviette and tied it up with the raffia. Then I made/found sprays of daffodils and greenery and tucked them into the bow. A little Swiss chocolate bunny and we are good to go.
So after vacuuming and dusting, I went out to water the seedlings and close the greenhouses for the night. So what possessed me to start planting things at 8pm????? I planted 5 troughs, 3 pots and one hanging basket. It must be tiredness which has made me lose my mind. I was doing my own impression of the energiser bunny and heaven knows I do not need to be stupid and overdo things. I did. Then I swept the patios, and here I am. I forgot to eat. But I do have coffee.
I hope your Easter Day is wonderful. HAPPY EASTER to you and your families!
