Happy Easter

Photo Copyright: Maggie May

Today I am writing this post before my two children and four grandchildren wake up. There is no indication, at present that there are so many people in my house.
Soon it will be a very different story as they get up one by one.
Granddad is the first up. He has already gone downstairs to feed the rabbits.
In the space of just one week, he is such a different person to the suffering man he was last week.
He is not in so much pain now and he seems to be walking much better. Harry is not on strong medication but the first lot of tablets that were prescribed made him feel quite ill. The ones he is taking now, suit him very well.
I am not so scared of him going out by himself and he will soon pop to the newsagent for his paper.

The weather has been just like summer. The temperatures up in the twenties centigrade. Today, we have the possibility of rain, but there is no sign of it so far and the temperature is quite pleasant.

We have had a riot in Bristol that has made the headlines on The National News and in the newspapers..... all to do with a supermarket that was built in an area where the local people did not want it. Well, I wasn't aware of the commotion, though it went on all the night before last
and there must have been the noise of helicopters, sirens and such like passing through. That seems to have calmed down now but there is still strong feeling about the supermarket.

Millie, the youngest grandchild has just got up....... quickly followed by her sister, Amber.
The boys are not so eager to rouse these days. Teens seem to need more sleep and don't go to bed early enough.
I must rescue Granddad. He cannot understand why the whole world doesn't get up at the crack of dawn, though he seems to be struggling to do so himself, these days.
He will be getting the breakfasts for the girls.

Soon, this post will be old hat. However I will not be writing another one this side of Easter. The boys won't be be going home until Sunday.
Schools are on holiday for at least another week and the Royal Wedding on Friday has caused us to have yet another day off...... so the holiday stretches on.

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter.
I will try and catch up with reading blogs and commenting when I get a quiet moment. I am sure there will be some ...... or is that wishful thinking?

What kind of food do you feed your rabbits? We have untamed rabbits in our yard along with squirrels and other critters and they all get along well, sometimes eating on top of or under the picnic table in the yard we use to feed them. I have tried lettuce, carrots, apples, and the rabbits don't seem interested in that. I am contemplating going to the feed store for rabbit pellets. I will have to research that some more though. If the rabbit pellets are just the same thing as grass, they have lots of that in the yard, and they spend lots of time eating the grass. Since you are my rabbit expert, I thought I would ask your advice.

Hope you and Harry enjoy your Easter with your family.

I too am reading this before the household wakes up. I hear faint sounds of breathing coming from the various sleepers in the house. Grandkids and DIL and gramps. All sounds asleep; dreaming of candy and coffee! Ha!!
I love this time of the morning and knowing I have a house filled with love. 'Tis special for sure. As you well know.
Happy Easter my dearest friend. Enjoy you love filled life this weekend.
Hugging you
