It seems like only yesterday I was complaining about not knowing how to fill the Easter holidays, and now they're already over! I've been AWOL from the blog for most of the week because my laptop charger gave up the ghost and I had to wait for the arrival of a new one.
Still, Marianna was more than pleased to have my undivided attention. We've done the craft kits she had for Christmas, painting nesting dolls and a unicorn money box, and sorted through my miniature collection to stock up the kitchen of her Sindy doll house. We also received a Munchachos snack subscription box to review, which prompted lots of fun with maps and toy animals.
On Friday it was a step back to work with staffing committee at Bron Afon, and then a Labour Party fundraiser Anthony had arranged up at Mt Pleasant Hall. It was a cocktail party so yesterday, unsurprisingly, I spent nursing my hangover...
