Happy Easter


I'm so relieved. I have 10 days off work and can't wait to be able to spend more time reading, writing and generally taking it easy. No doubt I'll have to do some studying, but never mind.

I have S-S#1 and J (my son) over from uni, Sas is here of course and S-S#4 arrives on Saturday morning from Cumbria to spend a week with us. So, we have a fairly full house, which means that Grumps and I will no doubt be taking refuge every so often in the shed.

The dining room table is covered with Easter eggs - thankfully only four are mine, so my intake will be restricted a little. I can't believe I've managed not to eat a single bar of chocolate since February, but will no doubt make up for it on Sunday.

Ahhh I can picture it now. Me reclining on the sofa reading Trisha Ashley's fabulous latest book, Chocolate Wishes, whilst working my way through kilos of chocolate. Bliss.

You have a grand break from work Debs and just a bit of Easter chocolate. None since February? Totally impressed. I've done a pretty good job at kicking a serious ice cream habit, but chocolate is a bigger challenge. BTW, love the cover design on Chocolate Wishes. Makes me want to get out the watercolor paints.

Grumpy asked me to tell you that he does not want to wear bunny ears on Sunday. . .:-)

Joanne said...

Enjoy your time off ... good books and chocolate, very relaxing! Have a nice Easter weekend, too :)

That chocolate will be well-deserved.

KarenG said...

Chocolate Wishes? What a nice title! I think I'll add this to my Goodreads to-read list. I like the cover.

Suzanne Jones said...

No chocolate since February? I'm so impressed.

Have a great Easter and enjoy those four eggs.

Ten days off, woo hoo! I have to wait till the end of June for mine. Hope you have a great time.

Debs said...

faye - I love ice-cream too, but chocolate is definately my problem.

Ahh, and there I was rummaging through our dressing up boxes looking for the bunny ears for Grumps ;)

joanne - thanks, you too.

helen - thank you, I can't wait.

kareng - this is definately a 'good read' book. I'm loving it, but then I do always enjoy Trisha Ashley's books.

Thanks, you too.

queenie - I'm so relieved I have some time off.

Sounds like a plan. I'd love reclining on the sofa, reading and eating chocolate. =o)

Have a great holiday and here's hoping you don't feel the need to take refuge too often.

Michelle said...

That chocolate is going to taste really good! 10 days off too, I'm very jealous. Hope you have a great time, and get lots done if you do retreat to the shed!

Debs said...

b e sanderson - I haven't needed to take refuge much at all so far, which is good.

michelle - hope you have a wonderful Easter too.

denise - I'm so relieved to have so much time off work and am going to make the most of it.

DJ Kirkby said...

Ten whole days OFF WORK!? Sooooo jealous. You'll be able to finish writing a novel in that time :)

Debs said...

dj kirkby - unfortunately, no. I am going to do a further 10k words though, at least. I have to make sure I do some studying in that time too, which is a bit of a bore, but also a necessity.

Annieye said...

Happy Easter, Debs. Isn't it grand not to have to go to work for a change! Happy writing and enjoy those Easter eggs. Love to you and Grumps xx

Leigh Russell said...

I can't believe anyone could go that long without chocolate! Enjoy your break, no doubt well deserved. I'm off to the fridge - there's a nice little block of Lindt chocolate/chilli...my fvourite...

Debs said...

spiralskies - I still have more to eat, incredibly enough.

I'm enjoying having time of work so much and am determined to make the most of the extra writing time. Loving it.

l'aussie - I know, I couldn't believe it either.

Love Lindt chocolate, though haven't tasted the chilli flavoured one yet.

Flowerpot said...

you deserve it all Debs!

Anna said...

Sounds like a lovely Easter! I miss those kinds of eggs.

Thanks for the good wishes; we're finally feeling human again!

Debs said...
