Pamper (Easter) Monday

Today is the last day of the school’s Easter break – boo hoo! 😉 We had friends over for a slap-up 3 course lunch today and had a really cosy time.

DD8 and I had ‘tie-dyed’ eggs with 2 of DH’s old silk ties. A really simple craft from one of my favourite ‘foodie’ websites

The mini chocolate eggs we had also put on the table as a decoration disappeared pretty fast. Luckily I had made Danish marcipan cake for dessert.

That disappeared pretty fast too…

Well, we did have a couple of slices each. With squirty cream, of course!

At 5pm I told the kids I was making homemade pizza for dinner. DD8 said, ‘Mum, don’t worry! We’ll walk to the pizzeria and get a takeaway for you!’ And off she went with DS10, a small purse in hand 😉

Truth to tell, I don’t really like the pizzas from our nearest pizzeria. But the kids love going off there on their own and it’s so rare (thanks to Flylady and menu planning!) that we get takeaway food these days. So I’m sitting back, enjoying a quiet moment in my fantastic kitchen, enjoying not having to cook and enjoying the fact that my ‘little ones’ are pampering me…

Time for me to get this show back on the road and get this new school week started. Hope you have a marvelous pamper Monday. Pizza or no pizza! 🙂
