Easter!

I am about to finish for the Easter weekend! Yippee!

Tonight I am off to play toy soldiers with some friends - the first game since last summer! With everything else going on I have had to put games on hold, but I am getting back to fortnightly playing for a while to see how things go. Tonight we have Julius Caesar trying to conquer Gaul...

Tomorrow my wife and I are going food shopping while the kids are at school. We are hoping that we will beat the rush, but you can never be sure. We will probably get there to find the shelves empty...

Friday is intended as a day of loafing around in Canterbury doing a bit of recreational shopping with the kids. Nothing earth-shatteringly important, just looking at computer games with the boys, clothes with my daughter and the amazing art shop that I have just found with my wife. Should be good.

Saturday will probably just be a vege-out day while everyone plays with what they bought on Friday!

Sunday we will have our Easter Egg Hunt, which will include hidden treats for our dog, Custard. Can't leave out the baby of the family can we? Then it will be into the kitchen for Rock Chef to cook up a good festive meal. Don't know what it will be yet, I am hoping that I will be able to get hold of a nice big bit of pork that I can slow roast in Coca Cola.

Monday is too far away for me to think about, but if the weather is nice I will see if I can drag everyone out of the house for a walk along the beach.

That is the plan, anyway. There is a military saying that no plan survives first contact with the enemy. In my case, no plan survives first contact with the kids :-)

So have a great weekend, everyone, and while it is all happening don't forget the true meaning of Easter...

Terri - I think we ended up with enough, not quite too much...

Amazingbrenda - I have never seen plastic easter eggs - they would be fun, though! I will have to look around next year!
