How was my Easter?

Well what a rubbish Easter holidays we had, the children had two weeks off from school, they broke up on the Friday and on the first Monday my youngest son Bobby jumped off the sofa and tore the tissue in his foot. That meant no football club, and no going out as it had to be rested, then on the Thursday he got Croup which meant he was poorly over the Easter weekend. Then just when you thought things couldn't possible get any worse he woke up Tuesday morning with Chicken Pox. Well the poor little thing was so bored, he has spent the last two weeks trapped in the house, it has drove him mad. He can't wait to get back to school, and i'm glad to say he is feeling so much better.
Funnily enough to say I didn't go anywhere it cost me a fortune as my two eldest (teenagers), wanted to be out and about so I was paying for them to go swimming, cinemas, shopping trips, eating out, but I felt so guilty because of the situation, and didn't want them to miss out because of it.

We did have some day trips planned so they have been postponed, so I think we'll wait for some good weather for us to do them now.

Hope you all had good Easter holidays, and enjoyed some of those sunny days we've had.

Stamps - Ollyfant Farm, Polkadoodles butterfly,
Papers - Raspberry Road designs - Summer Goodness,
Colouring Mediums - Distress Inks,
Tools - Crealies flowers ans swirls, circle punches,
Embellishments - Ribbon, button, stickles, cotton lace, Crochet thread,

Thanks for popping by my blog.
Happy crafting
