Easter chick

Hot cross bunMuch as I love Christmas – I even have a whole cupboard for our decorations, for goodness’ sake – Easter is, really, my favourite celebration. The fact that it’s spring, I can put out my everlasting Easter eggs, and of course it’s the chance to eat hot cross buns and A LOT of chocolate without any judging gives it the edge, IMHO.

Good Friday was mostly spent supervising *cough* Man of the House doing the weeding in the garden. And then there was that wonderful feeling of knowing that there were another three days of not having to do very much at all.

Roast porkOn Easter Sunday I hosted a big family get together – my sister usually does Christmas, I do Easter. This year there were nine of us for dinner and I made roast pork which as you can see turned out rather well (although there wasn’t quite enough crackling).















I put a jug of daffodils on the table…

blue glasses









…and  bought some pretty new blue glasses…










…and we made a pavlova…

…and afterwards we watched Frozen, and the whole day was pretty much as close to perfection as it’s possible to get.

Hope you had a fabulous Easter too.

*This is my entry for the Gallery – the theme this week (in case you didn’t guess) is Easter.

    Sounds like a perfect Easter. And I’m the same; love Christmas celebrations, but I much prefer the spring colours and chocolate involved with Easter! x
