Needed to go back to work to recover from the weekend.  
There were a dozen things on my to-do list for Easter but I managed to complete only one of them - sorting out my wardrobe. Plans changed, new plans made, and generally it was a busy time. And the weather was perfect, just right for a long weekend in the middle of autumn. Blue skies, temperatures in the high 20s, although the nights are cooling off now with some mid-teens temps recorded.

Friday was going to be the day I planted bulbs, but I decided they need to spend a little longer in the fridge, at least until the ground cools down a bit; instead I helped my sister paint her loungeroom, then had a friend over for dinner. Saturday and Sunday I was going camping, but after waking up with a cold I thought better of it and instead went looking at Jeeps with my sister, then replaced all of my kitchen cupboard door handles. On Sunday I went for a drive out to the camping ground, just for the day, then finished up at my son's for dinner.

Yesterday I tried on nearly every piece of clothing I owned, and consigned a few things to the second hand shop. Then went through my linen closet and pulled out blankets that I haven't needed in ten years, adding them to the Lifeline pile. After that I washed my poor neglected car so that it's nice and shiny again.

So nothing fantastic was achieved but I filled the weekend, even if I didn't make it through the planned list. Next weekend is a long one again, what with Anzac Day on Friday, and it's shaping up to be a busy one as well.

Don't worry, I found a couple of shirts that I bought a few years ago that still have the tags attached. No more impulse buying!

From my POV a wardrobe clean out is a major accomplishment. \o/

Oh believe me it was - took in excess of three hours to go through everything, and at the end I had so many spare coathangers, it was wonderful. Cathartic, actually. :-)

I wouldn't even get ONE of those things finished, much less add in all the other busy things you did!

Ah well it was a four-day weekend, so lots of time available to get things done.

You did have a busy Easter and wasn't the weather glorious! Our beaches were very busy with everyone and their dogs soaking up the sun and going for a surf.

If you get the urge to paint walls again, I have quite a few that need doing. *bg*

The weather was lovely, perfect paint-drying weather. *g*. I still have painting here to do, and my deck needs another coat of stain, but it was fun helping my sister - time went really quickly with someone to chat to while painting.

I can imagine the beaches were busy, being the last weekend of the school holidays and with everyone getting their last beach visit in before the weather turns.
