Today marks the start in a week’s series of guest posts by lovely friends. They are here to keep you amused, to entertain and to share some wonderful posts with you while I’m enjoying a much needed weeks holiday.
Today’s post is written by the lovely +Colette B who blogs over at We’re going on an adventure. Colette is currently on maternity leave from her job as a supply teacher and is Mummy to Ben, Chloe and Amy.
I’ll pass you over to Colette who is sharing her top 5 Easter activities:
