I didn’t think I’d be posting today. It’s Sunday morning and I had nothing scheduled. I’m glad I scheduled my posts last week because I have been so poorly. I didn’t think it would last this long though. I had to miss a party last night, my niece’s 30th, and it was fancy dress. Thankfully, some of the family were despatched and I believe they had a good time. Just me and ED at home, both of us poorly. My Sister-in-law always buys me flowers when I’m ill, so I’m posting you a photo of this weeks Easter Roses as I am calling them.
I guess it makes a change from chocolate! I nearly forgot the Easter Eggs. I didn’t forget to buy them, but they were stored away in my bedroom. But no worries, as only the Little Man is up this morning. He was a real party animal last night apparently, but he was up bright and early as usual. Partially because his Dad fell asleep downstairs and must have rolled on to the television remote and turned it up full volume. *sigh*
I do have sixteen little eggs to hide for the Little Man later, so he will get his egg hunt at some point today. I don’t know what time the girls will get up, and the three eldest have only been in bed for an hour or so (it’s 9am.) Happy Easter! (We are missing half of our Easter roast dinner too, I did ask Graham to go shopping yesterday, and I really thought he’d been and got everything, but I was a bit too ill to double check.)
Ok, this is not a religious post, I do miss going to church at Easter, it was always my favourite time, Even better than Christmas. But this is more to do with my Peace Lily which I featured recently. Last night, while waiting for my family to return from the party I watched the beginning of Hot Fuzz. (It’s the second of the Cornetto Trilogy which are some of my favourite films, Sean of the Dead, Hot Fuzz and The World’s End.) They first appear like spoof comedies, but they really have some clever themes and some you don’t notice until after several watches. I haven’t seen Hot Fuzz for a long time (and I’ll admit that last night I was asleep before it finished) I’d completely forgotten about the Peace Lily. Nicholas Angel, the main character played by Simon Pegg, was very attached to his Peace Lily, even though it came to an untimely end. So I’ve decided to name my Peace Lily, Angel. I will have to watch Hot Fuzz again now… although just thinking about the church spire makes me cringe.
So from now on, My Peace Lily is going to called Angel and I promise not to use it as a weapon.
Happy Easter to all my readers.
