Spring has well and truly sprung,
blindingly obvious I know,
but I just can't seem to get enough of this glorious sunshine we've been blessed with recently.
But I'm jumping ahead of myself.
HAPPY EASTER - hope you had a truly eggcellent time. I went back home to the shire for a family filled weekend of homey activities.
Kicking off with a caffeine hit at my guilty pleasure chainstore.
To then walk through the front door to the enticing aromas of our wonderful mumma rustling up a mexican feast...
Only to collapse on a heap on the sofas watching 'Caddyshack', an absolute American old-school classic, bone-ticklingly funny - we strongly encourage you to watch and enjoy it!
Good Friday morning flew by in a haze of circuit classes, errands, vintage shopping escapades, and garden centre visits because...
We are currently revamping the garden, so the day was spent outside soaking up the rays whilst giving lashings of duck-egg blue paint to our flower and veg planters.
Working all day outside really gives you such a sense of satisfaction and a love for productivity, that was rewarded with more fabulous home cooking. Spoonfuls of mumma's thai green monkfish curry were guzzled down, whilst we got all excited about the months ahead.
Another night spent curled up on the sofa, this time watching 'Fargo'. Did anyone else watch it? What did you think? A tad gory....
A lazy breakfast and more pottering around the garden filled up saturday morning.
Before heading over to Jacob's Chop House for a big family lunch. Thanks to some gushing and fluttering of the eyelashes via twitter, the lovely chefs had very kindly promised to save a portion of the evening special just for me.
The Beef Rib.
Deep, velvety and so moist; chaps - I salute you!
Saturday afternoon was totally unashamedly consumed by a chocolate coma.
Nothing productive was achieved (ok, I may have made a tumblr)- and I don't even feel the least bit guilty, it's holiday time after all.
Easter Sunday morning was a dream of blueberry pancakes with bananas, farmer bacon and USA maple syrup. Slurped down with smoothies and freshly ground coffee - oh the joys of being home!
Fully fuelled up, we booted up and headed out for a long, grey walk.
Nothing like a grizzly day to make you appreciate the little things...
And make a few friends along the way.
And we're back full circle to the beautiful bluebells! We stomped off home for Roast Lamb and more lazy sofa time.
Thanks for reliving this wonderful weekend with me, more to come tomorrow - how did you spend your long break? Please share your post links below, I'd love to have a read x
