I picked up these ceramic eggs from Gill's shop.
I painted them with C & O after school last week and now they are all glazed, and prettily brightening up my egg tray in the kitchen.
Then I baked a batch of cupcakes (always good-mood food), mixed a bowl of pastel icing, and then let C & O decorate them when they got in from school (which actually involved plonking mini eggs quickly on top of my artfully placed icing, demanding to lick out the bowl and then hurtling off to play).
They look the part though, and are bringing a bit of spring-like cheer into the kitchen.
Tomorrow the long weekend starts properly and we are celebrating by going out to brunch with Grandparents, Uncles and Aunts before heading on to the National Gallery for some exploring. And of course we will be having eggs for breakfast all weekend!
I have been tagged by Gill with this interview about my blog:
Why I started my blog ....
I wanted to get in the habit of writing regularly, and overcome my fear of letting other people read my writing. I was also inspired by beautiful, witty blogs like Yarnstorm and Pea Soup which I had been reading for a while.
How I came up with the name of my blog ...
I'm not really sure! I knew my blog would be based around lists, and I suppose the 'philosophy' part of it meant that I would be thinking and reflecting quite a bit in my writing.
Do my friends and family know about my blog? What do they think of it?
Yes - everyone probably knows about it by now! I know my Mum is a big fan. I'm not sure what my brother and sister think about it though. I am guilty of standing over G after I have put up a new post and nagging him to read it "There's a new post! Read it!". Very un-cool.
How do I write my posts ...
I just sit at the computer and type. Usually I have absolutely no idea what I am going to write about until I sit down.
Ever had a troll or had to delete unkind comments ...
No, but occasionally I get slightly mad, but kind, comments in another language, which I do delete!
Do I check my stats? Do I care who/how many read my blog? Do I try to increase traffic?
Of course I check my stats - I'm an accountant! I love stats! I don't do anything to increase my traffic, but I love seeing the counter tick steadily up and I have a cool new widget which shows me where abouts in the world my readers are.
What I like and dislike about blogging...
I love all the comments best. And I dislike all the hours faffing around with my camera and photos - resizing them and uploading them is very dull.
