50 Shades of Easter

I’ve made it sound like this is going to be really saucy. A little confession about what Husband and I get up to with chocolate and plush toys …

But’s not. It’s just more interesting than saying “Al’s Easter Round-Up”.

Here’s an update on what HouseGoesHome and iVillage have to offer this holiday for the bunny and egg inclined.

‘Cause my brain is on holiday and my body is driving to Dural to pay someone – Golden Ridge Animal Farm to be exact – to take three roosters off my hands … Happy Easter!

And when the Easter bunny hops to our place on Sunday, he’ll be leaving this booty. I told the kids I’d sent an email to him asking for more toys, less sugar. They were cool with that. I think he may have gotten slightly carried away on eBay and at Woolies, Target, every $2 shop he happened to pass …

But it’s not all silly faces and Easter eggs. I cried over Stephanie Osfield’s blog, Why My Heart Breaks Every Easter.

And those who haven’t forgotten that Easter wasn’t originally about celebrating chocolate, visit my dear friend Reverend Katherine’s Facebook page for The Anglican Parish of Cardiff. Or better yet, visit the church in person. Katherine is one of the smartest, kindest women I know and her congregation are so very lucky to have her this Easter.

How’s your Easter been?

  1. What a creative Easter, although given the title I did think there might be a little S n M with the Easter Bunny! Yes $2 and Reject shops are amazing for Easter paraphernalia,. Sprogs will be very happy with that loot! In our house this year the Easter Bunny is going minimalist 🙂 Good luck with the roosters…shouldn’t they be paying you??
