Here is a visual of our Easter decorations.
Now here is the real picture.
Robo Rat came courtesy of Louise in Townsville - gee, thanks Louise!! Louise sent a huge box of things for the boys, including Robo Tarantula and 2 huge life like rubber snakes. The rubber snake had a not inconsiderable role in the school production of "Joseph and his Multi-Coloured Dreamcoat"** and now has its own Equity card.
We had fun over Easter - Lovely B and her daughter Lovely R and Lovely A came to stay for the Easter weekend. We did a little trip to Windsor, it was biting cold, there was a huge queue all the way down the street for the Castle. The Queen was at home as the Royal Standard flag thing was flying but she did not ask us in for a cuppa. One word: Republic.
Instead of taking a nice pic of the Castle for you all, I took a pic of a nearby clothes hire shop - it offers a free jacket with any kilt package. Of course I found the phrase "kilt package" very amusing. One thing about having the mental age of an 8 year old is one is rarely at a loss for a laugh..
The Easter hols continued long after the Easter weekend was over.
To keep myself sane I fell back on my tried and tested remedy of gritty detective novels.
Right, time for some more left over Easter egg.
*Dear Mrs Music Teacher, is it a good sign that after £300 of piano lessons (not that I am counting the cost or anything) Boy 2's only ambition is to play the Crazy Frog theme (what I know as the Beverly Hills cop music) as shown on YouTube?
** to make it more accessible to Daphne's parents it was re-titled "Joseph and his Missoni Knitware"
