It did make me think that Easter has now become just as commercialised as Christmas. As a child I loved Easter, spring was just beginning , the concept of new life symbolised by eggs seemed so exciting and as an animal lover I couldn't wait for the tiny little toy yellow chick I got each year. I remember one year getting a little plastic lamb for my toy farm and spent the whole Easter holiday making it gambol around the field. I'm not sure if today's children would be so easily pleased!
When I got back home I popped down to the shops and the charity shop was just about to close. The lady who works in there was clearing out the Easter display in the window and the bunnies were being taken out. I popped my head in and asked "How much is this bunny?" "£1" she replied. Just look at her, she is so cute! I have checked her carefully and she is safe for little ones so will be perfect for Scarlett. A nice frugal end to the day.
I hope everyone has a lovely restful Easter and remember, even though it never seems to stop pouring with rain, spring really is is just around the corner.
