Happy Easter From the Ducks. . . . . . . . .


Good morning everyone. Hope you are all well this fine Easter morning.

Just wanted to stop by and wish you all and your families a happy and peaceful Easter and thank you for your continued support at The Pond.

Thank you all for your comments on the new job. Too early to know about enjoying it at the moment as there has been lots of hours in front of the computer training (with a few techno hiccups) and long hours my first week and this week will be the same too.
Hasn't helped that I haven't been sleeping well either with Mr D's snorty sniffles, a remnant of his flu/cold. Lucky to get 5 hours per night at the minute.
In fact, I did not get up until 9am today, which is not like me at all, hence my lateness posting this as I had to get washing sorted and and my ablutions lol!!!

I also hadn't realised I had won the inaugural CE Blog Challenge until some of you left messages lol! I am thrilled with that honour.

Anyhoo, once again, apologies if I have missed anyone's blogs this week as it has been a struggle to keep on top of visiting. Next week may be the same, I'm afraid but hopefully, I will be on a more even keel when I am on my contracted hours.

Help yourself to an egg from my basket below (made with the same die as Patricia's lovely creation here and its lined with acetate). There are plenty in there of mini creme eggs and full size (though I think they have shrunk somewhat!!!). Just don't leave the wrappers lying about as I like to keep a tidy pond lol!!!



Have a very Happy Easter and see you again as soon as I can.

    Beautiful basket, I am hopeless at looking at a die and seeing what else I can make with it lol! Too much rubbish going on in my head to even think about crafty ideas lol!

  10. Hi Ang.
    Thank you for the egg, I have saved the wrapping as a true crafter never throws anything away!!! I hope Mr D doesn't keep you awake again tonight - just bop him on the head with a rolling pin!! (I prefer my rubber mallet).
    Congratulations on winning the CE blog challenge. Clever thing, bet you were paddling like mad to cross the line before the other ducks!!!

  13. Hi Ang. I hope you and Mr Duck had a lovely Easter day together. I love the basket, lining it with acetate is a great way to strengthen it. will have to give that a go : ) I'm sure this next full week training will go fast then you can settle down in your new job and start to enjoy it. Take care.

  14. I KNOW the larger eggs have shrunk. I always gave them to my children in egg boxes, now they look lost in one, even meant for small eggs, and I've never bought small eggs, so they would have been a lot bigger some years ago. Love your baskets though, great idea. Sorry the job isn't all that interesting at the moment, get this fortnight out of the way, and they might let you see an animal or two.
