My lovely gerberas. I did try to arrange them nicely, but the heads were heavy and wouldn't stay where I put them, so in the end I just plonked them in the vase with a few stems of maidenhair fern I had picked.
On Sunday, I drove down to see my youngest daughter and her three. Her youngest son, Harry, whom I've blogged about in the past, is over from New Zealand visiting for the school holidays. He'll be coming to stay with me next week. I had seen Harry in November when Gabbie and I were in New Zealand and when I saw him on Sunday, I was shocked at the growth spurt he'd had...he's almost as tall as me (163 cm). Anyway, I had bought them some marshmallow chocolate Easter eggs and had bought my daughter some Lindt chocolate bunnies and eggs. However, Harry doesn't like marshmallow and she does, so they swapped.

Then I went to visit my eldest daughter and Cooper, who was telling me all about their new acquisition...a cockatoo named Georgy Girl. She's only 16 weeks old but can already say hello and imitates Cooper laughing. Cooper came up to give me a chocolate coated kiss, bless him, he had more chocolate outside than he did inside him.When I arrived home around five, Fred asked me to come over. Jane had picked up her birthday present which he had bought her...a new puppy. She's a tri-colour Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, whom Jane has named Kayla. However, our neighbour, Wendy, who also has a Cav has christened the puppy Kayla Jane...KJ for short, so that's what the little one is now being called by her mummy. I'll get some photos, because she so gorgeous and pretty feisty, too. The kids love her.
I hope you had a Happy Easter and that those of you who were driving home had a safe trip.
