Another week of Easter holidays has whizzed by. We haven't been out much, as it was a rainy week.
Eddie put his pirate hat on Sash, and for some reason they both found it hilarious. They were giggling and I tried to snap them, but they moved around too much, so it's a bit out of focus. The standing lamp didn't help either. I like it, because it is reflects a playful mood.
Looking at our Italian photos, I realised that there are no photos of me, if you don't count one single snap taken by Eddie on my iphone, and it's not the best picture. When on Monday our friend Jen took us by car to the Burford garden centre, I asked her to take a photo of Eddie and me together.
I'm wearing my new hat, which I bought in Italy. It's actually a men's hat, but I really like it, and decided it is very "Annie Hall".
Hyacinths in the garden are blooming in full force. Alas, they seem to attract a myriad of tiny black beetles. I read that they are pollen beetles, and there is nothing you can do about them. If you spray the flowers with pesticides, it will also destroy the bees and ladybirds.
Plum trees look very pretty at the moment.
On Thursday we stayed at home all day, and Ed played with his new Plasticine Softeez set. That kept him busy for the whole of 20 minutes.
Yesterday dinner was a trout with samphire aka sea asparagus. I like the salty crunchiness of this plant.
In a typical English holiday fashion we got soaked on our visit to the Cogges manor farm. On the way back home, we spotted a Mummy duck with several cute ducklings who were covered in rain drops.
