I hope you all had excellent*, extra-long, extra-chocolatey weekends :) I realise that this post is incredibly late as a last-weekend round-up, given that this weekend is already upon us (HURRAH!) but, in my defence, I spent Monday to Wednesday in a chocolate egg coma and then last night, just as I was about to hit "Publish", we had a power-cut; which wiped out the wifi. It also meant we had to get ready for bed by the light of candles, my bunny nightlight, and Tom's bike lights; which was much more exciting than brushing our teeth in normal circumstances.
Our Bank Holiday weekend was mainly spent cleaning, weeding, de-cluttering and visiting our favourite place in the world; THE TIP. We even tackled (cue ominous sounds of doom) The Loft. It took two trips to the tip, the building of an avalache-worthy teetering pile of bric-a-brac ready for the car boot, and two evenings listing things on eBay, but we got it all done. Phew!
Thankfully, our weekend wasn't all boring chores. On Saturday we went to our collective besties' house for a BBQ to celebrate their super-secret nuptials! Last Monday, Tom and I were honoured beyond words to be the sole guests at their top secret wedding - not even their families knew!! We actually managed to keep schtum about it since February(!) which was so hard but also rather fun. It also proves I'm An Excellent Secret Keeper, so feel free to send all your juicy secrets my way...
|Yay for secret weddings!|
In addition to the BBQ fun (with an Easter Egg hunt, which I might have become slighty too competitive about) I also received my parcel from Lauren's cheep** and cheerful Easter swap, courtesy of Clare.
|I'm sure it goes without saying that those poor bunnies didn't last the night.|
The nail varnish is a gorgeous coral colour, and I love that it's called "Fruit Salad" because when people ask me "what's that all over your hands?" I can tell them "It's Fruit Salad" rather than "It's the chocolatey remains of two dead Malteasers bunnies". GENIUS, no?
The wrapping paper was very "me", given that the Very Hungry Caterpillar is one of my all-time favourite books. Particularly his impressive munchings on the Saturday...
The parcel above contained these pretty magnets, which are now adorning our fridge and getting along splendidly with all the others.
I sent my parcel to Sophie in the Sticks, who has posted a photo of the goodies I sent her here.
* Yes, I know I could've put "eggsellent" here, but I kind of feel like puns that obvious are beneath me.
** Ok, I cracked***.
