I’ve had to cheat this week, not sure what happened but I think I missed a day, and got myself all confused with when I took photographs. I was really kicking myself, however I reminded myself why I was doing the project, had a little swap around and I think I’ve sorted it – kind of.
We are so lucky living in Nottingham, as we have a fantastic John Lewis on our doorstep. We love the whole ethos behind John Lewis, and are regular customers. So when Miss N (9) and I were very kindly asked to go Easter egg tasting, and for a tour of our local John Lewis we of course didn’t hesitate. I am going to do a further post that covers more about our tour and some of the fantastic services that John Lewis provide, next week. I was blown away, so think it deserves a dedicated post.
This is all about the amazing things that John Lewis have for Easter. I did a poll, with my friends, and the majority of them have Easter parties and/or Easter egg hunts. We actually go to two, one at grandparents and at a really good friends house. So we are always looking for both Easter gifts or decoration ideas.
John Lewis are outstanding, hand on heart I don’t think you could find a better selection of Easter goodies anywhere. As we wandered around and saw all the spring and ice cream like colours, it really got me Miss N and I in the mood for Easter.
Look at this for a beautiful Easter wreath (£18), that you could bring out every year and use throughout spring:
If you live in the Nottingham area you will have either heard of, or visited Wheee – Lakesides Annual, International Children’s Theatre and Dance Festival.
Whee was founded in 2005, Lakeside itself however is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, which is very exciting! Whee will take place from 2 to the 10th of June and features 6 different productions.
Shona Powell, Director at the Lakeside said:
“We are incredibly excited to be welcoming six incredible companies to Lakeside as well as our international touring, home-grown Architects of Air. The shows coming to Lakeside Arts Centre are suitable for a range of ages. The performances are lively, vibrant and will amaze all from two to ninety-two. Great theatre for children is undoubtedly fabulous theatre for adults, and we’ve got a clutch of absolute gems lined up”
Tickets to all the events and further information is available at Lakeside Arts or call the box office on 0115 8467777
We will be going as a family, and we can’t wait!
Whilst we at the launch we were very privileged and invited into the luminarium that will also be at the Whee event.
A luminarium is a sculpture people enter into, to be moved into a sense of wonder at the beauty of light and colour.
