Where were we before I took my short blogging break?……
Here is my catch up of daily photos and my Lessons Learned this week.
- Always expect some problems with a kitchen makeover
The second fridge/freezer delivered had 4 broken parts! We are now awaiting the delivery of our THIRD fridge/freezer.
This is how we left our family room on Friday – awaiting the new flooring.
There will be new flooring, new colour on the walls, new built-in storage and new curtains. The only things remaining will be our sofas and our “stuff”.
I am deliberately not showing you the kitchen until the make-over is complete!
On Easter Saturday we explored the Giant’s Causeway. There were some great waves breaking on the rocks.
- Never underestimate the simple pleasures that kids love – especially when they are free!
The highlight of the day was when I was playing with the kids when it started to rain. I thought it would just be a quick shower so suggested we stay out, despite the lack of coats. It got heavier and started to hail…and the kids loved it. Here they are on our way back home – they said it was the best part of the day!
Easter Sunday morning was a beautiful morning. After church we went out for brunch in Portstewart and so the kids could play in the newly refurbished playground at the sea front.
- Never underestimate the generous spirit of others
Later we went to the National Trust property of Mussenden Temple, at Downhill, where there was face painting and our first ever Easter Egg hunt. It was a great lesson in generosity as the majority of eggs were found by the first kids down the path, but those kids and their parents all dropped down excess eggs so everyone got a share.
- Take time to give thanks for the beautiful world we have been given
It was a beautiful evening, so I went down the road to photograph a field of sheep in the evening sun, a perfect picture to celebrate new life at Easter.
More photos tomorrow, but now some digital scrapbooking news – I have had two more layouts accepted for publication in a UK scrapbooking magazine!!!
Finally here are my latest Project 365 weekly summaries
Both pages made using products from Life 365 by Weeds and Wildflower Designs.
