It's an exciting day for me, my family are all coming home. This only happens once or twice a year at the moment so it's feeling a little like Christmas for me today.
Daniel has some holiday left to take before the end of March so he's got all next week off work. He lives in Surrey, it's quite some distance from us here in Yorkshire so Mick went down yesterday and stayed overnight. His company have a branch in Basingstoke which is about half an hour from where Daniel lives so Mick's working there today and then bringing Daniel and his girlfriend home after they've all finished work. They haven't decided how long they're staying yet but it will definitely be at least a week. The Easter weekend is tagged onto their week off so they've only had to take four days holiday from work and yet they're getting a good, long break.
They're breaking their journey back up the motorway in Nottingham to pick Eleanor up from university. She doesn't break up for Easter until next Thursday but she hasn't got any lectures after today until Tuesday so she's coming home for the weekend and Mick will take her back on Monday. He'll then go back and pick her up again on Thursday as she's got a fortnight off for Easter.
It's a good job that Mick's also got some of his annual leave from work left to take. He's off now until after Easter so it's going to be lovely having all the family home, though as well as spending time together, there's other things they've got planned too. I just might not be around in Blogland as often as I usually am.
Mick buys those little packets of cereal when they're on offer as they're handy to take to work for breakfast. He doesn't like Cornflakes though so all the packets have mounted up until I got enough to make some Easter nests. I always used to make these when the kids were young and who's to say you ever grow out of them?
