Creative Mondays Easter Link Up

Happy Easter Monday everyone. Welcome to this week’s Creative Mondays Link Up.

I hope you have all had a lovely weekend?

I ate far too much chocolate yesterday and all I want to do is run it off today. The only trouble is, I don’t think I will be able too.

We have woken up to snow again!!

It is now Spring and all that jazz!!

Plus it is getting deep snow. What is all that about!?

I hate running in the snow as I am so clumsy and can not see where the curb is or what is under the snow and have been known to fall before.

Might have to stay inside and finish off the Easter chocolate today instead. After Mollies walkies, though.

I am so pleased you have stopped by to join us for this week’s Easter Creative Mondays Blog Hop.

Grab a drink and link up your creative/crafty/stylish posts and have fun finding amazing, inspiring and creative posts at this week’s party.

There will be no featured blog this week as over the weekend I have been having time off from blogging to spend some time with my family.

Featured blogs will be back next week.

Today I am sharing some fun at Queen’s Park In Chesterfield from last weekend. As it is now Spring 😉.

What I Wore | Day Out In Chesterfield:

Sunglasses: Primark | Sweatshirt: Primark | Mollie The Border Collie on my bag: c/o Bags Of Love | Jeans: Selfridges | Fishernet socks: Primark | Shoes: Converse.

Can you see Mr Bummble Bee sleeping in this photo?

What has got you creative this week?

    Claire, I ate way too much everything this weekend! I think I gained about 8 pounds. And it snowed in Northern New York as well. I am loving those cute aviator sunglasses on you. And your adorable casual outfit! Have a great week!

    What is it with the weather?! I indulged in a doughnut today but not sure why as I never enjoy them. Chocolate would have been better! Thanks for hosting and bringing pretty pictures and cool words our way #CreativeMondays
