My Easter was very different this year, I think I might have said that about last year too, buuttt this one was a corker. Due to Cyclone Ita roads and rail to the south were closed meaning on the other side of that water was the stock for the grocery store I work in packing shelves at night (second job and completely thrilling I tell you). Anyway when the rail opened in came the pallets and pallets and pallets of stock. This meant some major catch up needed to be done so instead of night workers we all became work whenever you can start workers. I worked every day, thank goodness I had no Nova. Now Good Friday is the day the shops close (confuses me but anyway) but I started work at 9am and finished at 4:30pm and we finally caught up, yay! I also worked Sat and Mon for my normal shifts. Goodbye long weekend. I sent Mr Sparky off camping with friends because he would be bored as hanging out for the weekend. Goodbye company. I should have been rejoicing really I had work and I had some peace and quiet to watch a movie and read some book but it just isn't the same as an Easter with family, not a bit the same as the chaos and noisiness and fun and mess of family.
Sunday I woke fairly early, hello body please sleep, and feeling pretty alone and low. Out of our bedroom door I spotted some little fellows enjoying the early morning. They lightened my mood, taking photos and seeing beautiful things in nature does that.
I then decided to head for a walk and see what I could see to relax and to stop me moping.
I then packed, did an Easter delivery for Mr Sparky to discover when he came back home and headed up to the Tablelands for a day/ night camping trip. It salvaged my Easter weekend and it was good to be around people. I'll post more on that later.
So no matter how you spent your Easter and who it was with or where it was I hope you had a great Easter Sunday, a great Easter holiday and great long weekend. Whether your celebration was religious or through being with family of friends, through just relaxing or through heading out into nature I hope it was filled with love, joy, hope, fun and bit of magic.
