Easter Fun in the Snow?

With a very short half term behind us, Easter has bounded up on me like an over exciteable bunny rabbit this year, and with no holiday booked it's left me wondering what on earth I'm going to do with the kids for another two weeks



The endless cold weather we seem to be stuck with really doesn't help in planning how to fill the time and apparently we are to be treated to one of the coldest Easter's on record. It all looks a bit grim quite frankly!

Where's the sun...?! Embracing the cold

But instead of being a whinge bag and peppering my vocabulary with a plethora of over used phrases such as "tut, I don't know, I can't remember what the sun looks like can you?" or "lovely day again!" I've decided I must  try being terribly stiff upper lip and British about it all.

I shall embrace the cold, Siberian wind, wrap the kids up yet again in their now compulsory duck down coats, gloves and snow boots and we shall find joy in building a 'snowbunny', picnicing and Easter egg hunting in the snow.

That's the plan anyway.

Whipsnade Zoo visit this Easter

My daughter is hell bent on going to Whipsnade Zoo so that's another day taken care of, and we have plans for Easter weekend itself, so maybe it won't be too bad.  The kids have a couple of playdates arranged and they will of course have lorry loads of chocolate to eat to keep the boredom at bay.

There, I've already talked myself into feeling more positive about it!

The great British weather

Who knows, the great British weather is by design sent to surprise us.  Perhaps we'll have a heatwave! I won't get my hopes up.

Happy Easter!

Using Tinies gave me peace of mind and also removed a lot of the stress and administrative side of the process. I could be sure that any CVs sent to me had already been screened for suitability, and that the consultant had already ensured that both I and the potential candidates would be a good fit. I felt that they were really committed to ensuring that I got the best person to help care for my daughter, and that they also understood how nerve wracking an experience it can be for a parent to leave their child with someone.
