Happy Easter!!

Happy Easter everybuddy - please forgive the recycled photo, but hey we still like it!!

Last night was a lunar eclipse, well really it was this morning at 1am so mum kept us awake to see it.  We wish we had a better camera, as ours doesn't do sky photos well at all.  Then our clocks 'sprung back' as daylights saving ended here in little New Zealand.

We had a blissful sleep in, then mum went for  a bit of a hilly walk and went to the cinema to see The Woman in Gold, with Ryan Reynolds and Helen Mirren.  She enjoyed it a lot, worthy of a 5/5.  She even had a couple of tears in her eyes and her lips were doing the old wobbly thing, but luckily no sobs and the mascara didn't run.  She thinks the trick with cinema crying is not to rub her eyes, if she rubs them they look all red and horrid, but if the tears just roll down the makeup can still look normal.

So then home to keep me company, a little book reading, a little tele and some home cooking and off to bed.  What a relaxing Easter weekend it has been for us girls.  Hope you are all enjoying your break too!!!

Do you get some time off work for Easter?  Our mum gets a 4 day break which is awesome.
