How good is Easter Monday when you don’t have anywhere to be, no traffic to deal with and an empty house after days filled with people and feeding and things to do? Very good! While I have been busy washing and restoring order I can report that it’s almost midday and my bra is still not on.
Easter weekend is always a very busy one for us with the village hosting a big market on Easter saturday. This is a HUGE job for everyone in the community whether it’s businesses, community groups and of course our little school of 29 kids who uses the opportunity to raise as much money as we can. That includes baking, cleaning and setting up the school for the crowds and BBQ and then of course there is Rob is who one of the organisers of the whole market and oversees that. On Saturday he managed to cover 26 kms!
By yesterday we were all exhausted, we had my sister and her family staying with us from Melbourne, Mum staying at Lucy’s place around the corner and an endless amount of kids and cousins and meals and fun. The stuff that memories are made of…another perfect Easter at home filled with people that we love.
We hosted a late Easter lunch at our house under the Autumn trees with all 12 of us, kids running around before they headed back home to Mum’s and then home to Melbourne today. It was a gorgeous afternoon, ending with a spectacular sunset. There really is no better time of the year than Easter I think!
Today is going to be very slow I think, no plans, pj’s on and trying to hold onto that long weekend feeling.
How was your Easter?
What did you get up to?
