Things To Do At Easter


My tin of exquisitely iced Easter biscuits was from Biscuiteers. You have no idea how hard it was to photograph them without taking a bite. They’ve all gone now and I can confirm they taste as good as they look!

I hope you have a really wonderful Easter break. I’m spending mine with my family and I’ll be taking some time offline (I’ll meet you back here on 5th April). Take care, have fun and don’t eat too many eggs!

    I’ve always loved the traditional cardboard, hollow Easter eggs the most, and that pink one is a beautiful example. Happy Easter!

    Just found your blog and binge read it all and I love it soo much. It is really easy to read.

    My 2016 wish/resolution was to start a blog despite the fact that I’m a horrible writer, but yesterday I did do that and if you have a one minute to check my blog it would be awesome. Thanks. 🙂
