Today my two oldest grandchildren came over to have some quality time with gran. We had a lovely time painting and colouring duck eggs for Easter. The girls were in great form and soon the place was full of brightly coloured arty decorations. Branches were picked out of the garden and decorated with eggs. But the girls then got side tracked and started sewing which turned out go be great fun, they surprised me with their handy work, sewing on buttons and ribbons, we then decided to go visit the local sewing shop and after much deliberation they both bought some really fancy buttons. After shopping we passed the playground and I thought it a good idea to let the get rid of some of their energy. The rest of the day was filled with more art, some seed sowing, and a yummy dinner. Tonight I am wrecked, had a lovely day, and happy to hand the children back to their parents, ready for bed.  These times though, are very precious.



  1. Thank you for sharing your fun with me. We have had a rough month taking our daughter for medical tests and while the results are pretty good, some of the possibilities were going to be hard going so our Miss could use some fun doing craft. She also has an end of term party at cub scouts tonight with lanterns on the water so things are looking up.

    1. I discovered how hard it is to paint an egg, but well worth it, there are lots of beautiful examples on Pinterest, I personally would like another go at it in my own time and try out some of the more intricate designs.
