This is going to be a shorter post than usual, as I am in a lovely pub, beside an open fire, but don’t have a plug nearby for my laptop, so we are running on battery power.
This pub, The Bushmills Inn, is a lovely old 16/17th century coaching inn, full of old local artifacts but right now the loveliest part of all is the smell of the turf (or peat) burning in the original fireplace. It is a smell you either love or hate, but as it is so wild and windy outside, it is the perfect place to be. If you check their website, and their Gallery, the fire can be seen at the bottom of the first page of images (just in case you are REALLY interested!). You can also see some more info on The Giants Causeway, where I plan to go for a blowy windswept walk after I finish this blog post.
I had planned to share some toddler/pre-school Easter craft, but due to time and batter restraints, I will just post a few photos – it is quite self explanatory, but I particularly like the last one , which is a chicken/egg in the egg-cup. So what came first ….the chicken or the egg?!! However, you will have to use your imagination, as I forgot to take a photo of the chicken side – there is a brad attaching the egg-cup to the back portion, which can be flipped round between the chicken and the egg.
So, I need to ask a vital question of you, my bloggy readers – this is a Cadbury’s Cream Egg (in a “tree”)
So do you have Cadburys chocolate in your part of the world (if you are outside the UK) and more importantly do you have Cream Eggs?
I hope you are all enjoying your Easter, and are able to reflect on the true celebration behind the cute bunnies and mountains on chocolate. It is easy to miss the point of it all, especially with children around, who’s main priority seems to be demolishing as much chocolate in as short a time as possible.
Take care until my next post.
