Easter is here so out comes the piping bag

25 Apr


Hey folks, have you been having a lovely Easter weekend? We are on day four of our epic long family weekend and its been a lot of fun so far. We have been soaking up the sun in true English style as if it might disappear at any moment. The sun hid behind the dark clouds late Saturday afternoon and there were a few threatening rumbles of thunder so we packed all the toys and picnic furniture away in the shed and traipsed indoors for a warm beaverage. But by Sunday morning we were back out in the garden before 8am dragging everything out of the shed again and setting up camp for another glorious sunshine filled day!

Henry and I decorated some blown eggs Faberge style with paint and glitter and yesterday we had our first family Easter egg hunt in the garden. A lot of chocolate and homemade iced biscuits were eaten and there was quite a bit of lying on the lawn recovering for A and me and a lot of energetic splashing in the paddling pool for Henry. Our garden is blooming right  now, bursting with flowers in all sorts of vibrant colours, its a real joy to spend time out there. I have of course been documenting with my camera and look forward to showing you more later. I am keeping my fingers crossed that this weather will last through till next weekend when we are heading down to the seaside to spend time with family.

Its forecast to be sunny every day this coming week except Friday and although I have heard that its supposed to be good luck if it rains on your wedding day right we’re all hoping for blue skies, right Miss Middleton?


Just give me a day or two to recover from all the loveliness and I’ll post the best recipe for sugar cookies ever, they are so much fun to make and you too can dust off the piping bag and get decorating.
