Looking for something to do Easter weekend, look no further

National Trust Easter 3

Do you like chocolate? I do!

Well, over a quarter of a million Cadbury Eggheads are being delivered to National Trust properties ahead of the annual Cadbury Eggsplorers Easter Egg Trails taking place over Easter weekend, 3rd-6th April.

National Trust staff have taken delivery of 21.5 tonnes of chocolate eggs for the event. With thousands of eggs to store, staff have been getting creative about where to conceal the eggs so no one finds them before Easter. Temporary locations include inside of grandfather clocks, pianos, vases and bookcases.

The 250,000+ Eggheads are now ready and waiting for families to unleash their inner explorer at these adventurous trails taking place across the country. Now in its eighth year, over 300 properties are taking part and with 680,000 people getting involved last year, the National Trust is expecting a huge turnout, especially if the sun makes an appearance!

Long time no blog

Well hello there dear readers, well those of you who are left and haven’t given up on me as I’ve not posted in over 4 weeks!

I didn’t even realise it had been that long until I went to publish some content for Butlin’s yesterday and noticed the “Silent Sundays” in a long list, you see I may not publish any updates but I never miss a Silent Sunday.

Life has just gotten so very busy. I went back to college at the beginning of March and this level of training is much more intense than the last. I’ve also started volunteering 2 mornings a week. So fitting in my studies is hard enough, let alone keeping you all up to date with the goings on in the Pinkwellies household.

I have to warn you now, this will more than likely be the status quo from now on too. In fact I am having to seriously consider the future of this little blog as when I move onto the next level of my training and I have real live clients I’m not sure I want my life so openly in the public domain. Any counsellors who can offer any advice on this it would be MUCH appreciated!

But back to our little update. Well, like I say, we’ve been super busy since Christmas really.

We’ve had play dates galore:

Time spent at home with friends and family:

Day trips, meals out, afternoon teas:

And Daddypinkwellies and I have had some quality time (together and apart) too:

So that’s us. Please bear with while I figure out the future of this little space of mine. In the meantime I’ll post irregular updates as and when I can find a minute.

That Butlin’s lot are very much ‘glass half-full’ kind of people. So, when the clocks goforward on March 29th, they won’t be thinking about losing an hour in bed, they’ll be thinking about gaining an extra hour of the one thing we cherish the most here in the UK: sunlight! What about you?

It’s really simple to enter too. All you need to do is tell them how you’ll be spending the extra hour with your family! By:

1. Heading to their Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram

2. Sending them a photo, video, or comment letting them know how you and your family will be spending your extra hour or even sending them yoursnaps of the things you actually got up to

3. And lastly making sure you use their hashtag #OurExtraHour

Whether it’s a photo of you outside having an Easter themed picnic, playing some football in your local park or staying inside with a good board game on a rainy day – there’s no better way to spend your time than with family.

Butlin’s will be picking 4 winners at random on April 9th to win one of the following:

1 x Main winner will receive: A Hasbro games bundle (including Monopoly Empire, Cluedo, Trivial Pursuit Party Edition, Twister, and Connect 4), a Billy Bear clock, a Bonnie Bear clock, and a Skyline Gang watch.
