Well, it's the Easter long weekend, so I hope everyone is enjoying some quality time with family and friends. Perhaps you are sewing all weekend... lucky you!! Perhaps you are going away... stay safe and drive carefully!! Perhaps you are going to church tonight... enjoy the friendship and fellowship!
Here in Australia there has been a campaign for a number of years to bring the Bilbies' plight to our attention, and we now can purchase Bilby chocolates for Easter instead of the good old Bunny!! Personally I don't mind what shape it's in just as long as it is chocolate:-) Anyway, I have included a link above and some pics for you to see what this is all about!!
My Easter plans are to just relax and do a bit of sewing, perhaps some tv (old movies) and a nice drive somewhere.
We are fortunate to be having a 5 day holiday, as our Easter Monday is also our Anzac Day, so we get the Tuesday off for Easter Monday holiday. Anzac Day is a very important day in Australia and New Zealand, and in my own family as my Father and Mother were both in the forces during WWII. My Dad passed away three years ago and my Mum is in a Nursing Home (she is 91 this coming July). If you are interested in reading about our Anzac Day, click HERE.
