Looking forward to Easter....

Bramwell has been crafting some lovely little Easter bonnets with tiny chicks and daffodils, they look a lot like bouquets for the dear departed Queen Mother or alternatively he makes little Wordsworths' out of peg dolls and pops little note books in their hands, which I think is very inventive. And ohh la la his own bonnet, a haze of shepherdesses and sheep, and a flowing stream, I don't know how he got it up there but there it is with a couple of paper boats. Moony wanted a spring flood on the river Nile so again lots of water. Charlie says he wont wear his as its "undignified" but I know Henny will talk him round because she thinks it is so "Bon Chic por vous!!!!". I have a little plan for the Easter egg hunt, why eggs? Why not lets say.... Brussels sprouts? So I spent quite a bit of time last night toughening up a couple fairly oval shaped Brussels and painting them with little chicks and bunnies. I have a feeling that my centres will be a surprise. I also decided that Sprouts made great apostles on the simmnel cake and made sure that each looked individual with a cheerful face and tried to make them robes but being round they just fell of so I iced them on. I think Moony was a bit sceptical, commenting that "If they had been like that they would have rolled away and stuck under chairs." I'm not put off. Lord Arbathnot is also organizing an Easter egg hunt but so far no takers which seems wise enough when one considers his history. Ivans been helping me find ingenious hiding places for my eggs and if were at a loose end we hide them under Moony who stays very still as long as there is gin and a pack of fags in the offing. Must go I think one of Charlie II lot is throwing Grannies eggs and flour about...... Goodbye for now................ "Monmouth that really will not do untie grandpa and clean those eggs of the policeman !!!!!!!!!!!"

Aye, sounds like a grand day to be had soon....what with all the bonnets...how DOES he get the little streams and rivers to stay on.....and they do sound most intriguing, do try and photograph some if you can...and I do like your idea of the hiding decorated brussels sprouts! You are a clever woman, by far!

Happy Easter!
