The Easter weekend was sunny and busy. We didn't have any guests, so it was less stressful, cooking just for us and not worrying about the state of the house.
Easter Sunday passed in a blur of too much chocolate. Eddie went to the church service in the morning with his Dad, while I stayed at home, cooking our Easter lunch. The weather was very warm, in fact it was so hot for several days that I had to water all my potted flowers.
We have two very old apple trees in the garden. While one is covered in blossom this week, the other one is pretty much keeping the buds unopened.
Back to school for Eddie, while Sasha's school had the inset day, so he stayed at home. We didn't have to hurry home after school, and Eddie and I popped into the Shake shop for the first milkshake of the season. We were sitting in the courtyard in the back.
The garden is full of forget-me-nots and bluebells. And the hated ground elder is getting on my nerves again.
The weather has changed for a much cooler one, with the rain going on and off.
Last autumn my Mum planted several bulbs of Ice Cream tulips in my garden, and I'm waiting for them to open up properly. They have creamy white insides and peony pink outside petals.
I picked a big bunch of lilac in the garden, and put it in the vase in the hall. Now our hall smells like a perfume shop.
While Sasha prefers to go to Cafe Nero on Saturdays, Eddie and I are more of the Costa people. Eddie likes to sit by the window, and keep an eye on Sasha, whenever possible, as Sasha likes to sit by the window at Nero, which is just opposite and across the road. And that's how we rock.
