Well…this is going to be an Easter like no other we have ever had before. In my 30+ years of being alive I have never spent an Easter without my parents. Crazy! Well, this year it is just going to be me, Liam, Coco (our dog) and bump. It will be quiet and incredibly different but that is why I have felt the need to make it extra special and make some new memories. I thought I would share our plans for the day incase you would like to take some of the ideas for your own. If you are alone please do contact Samaritans if you are feeling lonely. If you have the possibility to offer help and comfort to others you can sign up to help with the NHS, Samaritans and Age UK.
I am planning to have a lovely relaxed morning. For a start I will not be putting on an alarm, although I’m such a child and always wake up early on Easter and Christmas Day haha. Then I plan on sitting in bed with Liam and Coco with a hot cross bun…the smell is incredible! I think I will put the movie Hop on in the background…if Liam doesn’t mind haha. Then we will take Coco for a walk and once we get back home pop on a yummy brunch which must include hash browns and poached eggs.
After brunch I am going to prep for a roast dinner. Growing up one of my favourite things about Easter and Christmas is my parents prepping the roast dinner from early on and filling the house with gorgeous scents. Since being in our new house with our new oven I have actually not made a roast dinner, so this could be a disaster, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed that it’s wonderful. When the dinner is in the oven and slowly cooking my family are all meeting on Zoom. We have planned an Easter quiz and an Easter egg hunt. We are all writing 5 questions for the quiz per household. Then for the hunt we have all decorated 5 paper eggs each which we are going to hide in our houses and let people find them through the Zoom screen haha. Who knows what it’s going to be like?!
Once dinner is ready I think Liam and I are going to eat it in front of the TV! I have never seen Peter Rabbit and it’s currently free to watch on Netflix so this will be our Easter viewing. It all sounds quite lovely doesn’t it 🙂 I am actually quite excited.
What have you got planned? How are you coping with lockdown? Are you kind of enjoying it?
