Happy Easter

What does Easter look like to you?   

To me Easter looks like this, it looks like family and food and Easter eggs – not just the chocolate kind but the hard boiled and coloured ones as well (queen eggs). It is a little bit of Greek mixed in with a whole heap of Aussie. 

Hope you all had a lovely Easter. 


Hot cross buns. Really???


I couldn’t believe it this afternoon when I went to the supermarket to pick up some supplies and saw they already had hot cross buns out – what the????

Christmas isn’t over yet, we still have our Xmas tree up and Coles is already preparing for Easter. What’s the hurry? Why can’t we just savour the moments as they come? I don’t want to rush through life, I want to enjoy every precious moment, I am all too familiar on how quickly it can all change in the blink of an eye so I don’t want to rush this year – not an easy feat I must say, as I am known for rushing around, juggling fifty things at once, but I am determined to do my best. So Its safe to say that I won’t be rushing out to buy hot cross buns, at least not until Easter is well and truly upon us.

The Day after


Now that Easter is over and the mini break is almost finished there is a sense of sadness in the air today. I don’t know about you but my family has been spending today doing as little as possible.

Tomorrow things go back to normal. School holidays are over, and all the extra curriculum activities will be resuming again, work recommences routine returns.

Today has been the perfect ending to a lovely long weekend that was filled with family, food and festivities.

Easter break has begun

Easter is almost here and I’m feeling kind of bad, that I find myself looking more forward to the four day break than the actual celebration of Easter itself.

This year we are lucky in that both Greek Easter and Catholic Easter happen to fall on the same day. Bonus, one celebration for both. My mum is having us all over at Easter, for one of her famous, delicious, lip smacking, mouth watering lunches.

Still there is much to prepare before then. I still have shopping to do, eggs to dye (the traditional Greek way), a pile of laundry to tackle, housework that never seems to end. I could go on but I’m getting tired just thinking about it.

So for the time being I will rejoice knowing that work is four glorious days away, there is an obscene amount of chocolate in my house, and I have ahead of me four days of fun with my family as we come together to celebrate Easter.
