Bad photos from a really half-decent Easter

The Egg Boat. 

Exciting and New.

This will only make sense to those of you who, like us, have been singing the theme to the Love Boat completely incorrectly for about 20 years.

Few people will have been singing this song at all, let alone doing it with the wrong words set to the wrong tune. Ours is better. Trust me.

The egg boat - pictured here without an egg - was a great disappointment. It was made for a race at Littlest's school. It came last. It didn't even make it down the ramp.



Here is our very own Easter bunny, pictured in her ears at the end of  the Big Bunny Bike ride. When we put the bikes into the car it was snowing. Luckily, it did not do so for long - five miles cycling through the snow would have been NO FUN.
 

 A hastily assembled Easter centrepiece. I do love a big bag of chicks.  The Pound Shop is my paradise at this time of the year.


I went out into the garden and cleaned off the table, feeling an immense sense of hope and enthusiasm. I looked at the plants, and was overcome with despair and helplessness. I came back in. I ate another Cadbury's Caramel egg.


This last photograph needs a good deal of explanation. But not yet. It's still in construction. At present we have a PVA glue shortage, which is halting the building work.  But it's an ambitious structure, which should not be rushed.


Happy Easter.

  1. oh what a shame about the egg boat - it looked very beautiful even if it didn't make it!

  2. My garden table has rotted. Don't even ask about the state of the borders. Is it really Spring now?

  3. A trip to Poundland is a lunch hour highlight - we have a selection of wobbly wonky chicks too.

  4. Your Easter centrepiece doesn't look 'hastily assembled' at all......(sorry!) Loving the egg boat. Well done that girl on doing the Big Bunny Bike ride. x

  6. Our house is overrun with Poundland chicks. A bit like the Father Ted episode with the bunnies, but yellow.

  7. Your defunct egg-boat brought back many memories of when our boys were little and daddy's heroic attempts failed miserably - not too often , to be fair. Oh what would life be like without copious amounts of PVA!!! Happy Holidays!

  8. Every time I venture into my garden I feel a sense of almost overwhelming helplessness. Then I view the wreckage of the house and feel better about the state of the garden!

  9. Despair and helplessness are what accompany me around my garden. We chopped and hacked at things this weekend and found dead mice in the water butt.

  10. If you wait long enough everything will grow furiously and obscure the desperate state of the garden. This is my tried and tested technique.

  11. I know what you mean about the garden. I went to visit the allotment yesterday, and it was horrible. And on Monday I went out with my camera looking for colour and there was literally none to be found. Surely soon it will be warm...

  12. I am too scared to go in the garden. There is an evil magpie which is staring at me from next door's tree. I am quietly relieved as the garden needs more attention than I am willing to give. Ax
