Happy Hot Cross Fun Day

Okay, we’ve almost hit lunchtime in our day. The obligatory warm, hot cross buns were had for breakfast, very seasonal. Now, the chapatti dough has rested and I am about to roll out 12 small ball shaped pieces into a thin circle for griddling. About 45 seconds each side and voila, the perfect accompaniment to our lunch of veg curry with a veg samosa on the side! I didn’t fancy rice, a bit too heavy for this gloriously sunny day. And it’s not like I don’t have the time, is it?

The children all playing nicely in the garden for now. I’m expecting screams any time soon. A lovely fellow blogger Anna Dusseau who runs a homeschooling website kindly shared her ‘ideas for homeschooling this week’ (last week) and we are going to try out a few of her suggestions next week! But we have been inspired by her no 7 on the list ‘Study Den’, though the den has been erected outside in the garden as the weather is so good.

Amritsar has just run in screaming as Tara pinched her. Thor has now joined her saying that Aaliyah hit him with a stick. Tara is now shouting for the polystyrene eggs as she wants to do the egg hunt now, not tomorrow! No, I say, she has gone off in a huff! And don’t worry, polystyrene eggs get swapped for mini chocolate ones. But more about that tomorrow!

Back to the idea of lunch – I had better get out my rolling pin! More later!

A little update on lunch! An exotic taste of the Sub-Continent of India. Pur veg at its best! Served up with lashings of orange squash!

    1. Enjoy those bagels. Everyone relaxing after their first Easter egg of the season! Caleb has just come out to the garden smelling like chocolate and that’s after a wet wipe wash. He is sat on the outside sofa smiling at me ‘naanaa’ are his words! 🤔
