I couldn’t sleep so I got up early listened to the sunrise service on radio 4 and decorated the fire place area that we had cleared for Good Friday.
Paper flowers on the cross, fruit and sweets (in place of the beans in our sacrifice jar) on the mantle piece and some flowers.
I added the decorated eggs to the Easter tree and put a basket of decorated egg on the table.
We did have a few chocolate eggs too.
The eventually the others got up and we had some of the fruit with yoghurt for breakfast – yummy!
Then a trip to church where I was delighted to sing Thine Be The Glory – it is to Easter what Oh Come All Ye Faithful is to Christmas – an absolute necessity if you ask me! Jonathan got a chance to show off his cake based Easter Garden. He made the cake with Ruth, the cookie stone with Rebekah and the icing with me – he was really impressive with the icing bag as he’s never done that before – and Martin took the photo so we were all involved.
The weather was yucky so we didn’t go and do our egg rolling and instead went home and had a lovely leisurely afternoon eating and playing demons and Wizard and watching Bang Goes The Theory.
