The years go by and everything changes slowly so you don’t really notice when it all happened. I read a FaceBook post on Good Friday asking if you have had fish today and it made me remember Easter for me as a child. On the Friday all shops would be shut but we would go down into Strood, Kent to the road where the fish van was where Nan and Grandad and myself, not that I knew anything about fish would buy it all fresh and we would have it for dinner that evening. I remember eating the yellow fish but I loved the prawns and cockles we had during the day. Easter Sunday we would always have lamb and roast with all the family and I would get eggs but not as many as the kids get now. Nan would hide some and Grandad used to write clues or tell me if I was getting hot or cold as I got nearer to them. Then the Monday we would go out for a drive and go for lunch, they would both have their half a larger and lime and I always had lemonade. Shops would all be shut so their was no shopping but we got fresh bread from the bakers van, I loved that. How things change, this Easter I have spent indoors alone since Friday afternoon, apart from going to Follies yesterday and getting my bargains.
The brass bucket I thought would look good in the garden with bulbs for next year and summer pansies maybe or Freesias as I really like them. The pink plate was a girly buy as its pink and pretty, not even sure what I am going to do with it yet!
Then you have this little tea cup and saucer/plate, it is exquisite and I absolutely love it. Very delicate and pretty, so I was very pleased with my three bargains that I got for £8
I enjoyed going to Follies and writing the post on my blog. I have had many comments, messages, emails about it and all good reviews so I was very happy. The new website is beggining to get some traffic, I just hope it builds up. I wrote a poem while I was having my coffee yesterday so I will put that on there tonight for you all to go and have a read.
Did you all have a good Easter? The positive thing about tommorow is that it’s Tuesday so a nice short week and it will be the weekend again. x
