This Easter Get 18 Consecutive Days Holiday!
Talking of time off work: with the serendipitous quirk of Easter falling on the weekend, including the Easter holiday, it's possible to enjoy 18 straight days off work only using 9 days of leave. Good Friday falls on Friday, April 14 and Monday 17th is Bank holiday Monday. Right, but did you know May 1st is also a bank holiday meaning you can finish work for the Easter break on Thursday, April 13th and not return until May 2nd.Christmas 2016 was also a bumper holiday because many working people enjoyed 10 days off straight, whilst only booking three. It’s fair that those 10 days were pretty full of action, what with visiting the inlaws, indulgent Christmas food feasts, present buying/unwrapping and just a few festive drinks. But, Easter activities are less set in stone, you might have an Easter Sunday meal, but what else can you do to occupy and entertain your family?
Home Cooked Dinner
Easter is not exclusively about chocolate, it's also a time to gather with friends and family and revel in being in each other's company, and with Good Friday and Easter Monday as national holidays you've now got a long weekend to play with. You might want to have a sit-down dinner with your relatives in that case you'll need to pay a flying visit to the supermarket. Easter lamb could well be on your wishlist for a nice roast dinner if so you'll need potatoes as well for the roasties, so check out our supermarket offers. As you arrive on your relative’s doorstep you may wish to bring a welcoming bouquet of flowers, well we've got you covered - don't say we never give you anything. Later on we’ll fill you in on some fantastic techniques to help you get hold of cheaper flowers.

Easter Daffs & Tulips
A smart trick to help save money when buying flowers is to ask about florist promotions on Friday but purchase the following Monday, when the flowers are at their freshest. With Florists and other stores often starting price promotions at the beginning of a new week it makes sense to ask when the best deals are to ensure you are prepared well to buy flowers when they are at their freshest and cheapest. Alternatively, buy from supermarkets at the weekend, they are often cheapest on a Saturday night, as supermarkets need to sell up any stock before it degrades.
Get flowers for free and at the last possible minute, ensuring you don’t blow the Easter budget and they stay fresher for a longer period. If you are going to pick wildflowers it’s vitally important to get the permission of any landowner beforehand. However tempting it might be please don’t pick them from your local roundabout!So there you have it an Easter basket full of ideas on how to kill time during the Easter holiday!
