Easter is my favourite holiday after Christmas, but I've noticed that many people have been complaining about how commercialised it's got in the last few years. The decorations, cards, gifts and of course Easter eggs are in my opinion a very welcome sight after the coldness of a dull British winter. My Easters have nearly always been accompanied by a Lindt gold bunny. It's just not Easter without him. This year I have been left in charge of this cheeky litter of wee rabbits and their mother, the stunning limited edition Fashion Bunny. Naturally like all good bunny sitters, I took my brood for a little outing in a basket. We ventured out into the daffodils at Claremont Gardens, my local National Trust. The sea of yellow amongst the trees looked so stunning and the peace - apart from bunny bells chiming away, was wonderful. It's been a long time since I've been able to walk around the whole of the gardens, but to go now and then for a very short stroll and a long sit down in the sunshine makes me happy. 

I'm looking forward to this weekend and the week to come. If my health is being good to me on Good Friday I will see my best friend. We're planning to eat massive sundaes made with lots of Ben & Jerry's at my house, which I'm sure will be followed by us both moaning that we feel sick. The rest of the weekend will be pretty quiet which I'll probably need after Friday. Normally on Easter Sunday or Monday we would have a small family gathering with a big roast dinner but this year it will just be my Mum and I. Watching Paddington Bear is at the top of the list along with eating lots of chocolate!
My auntie and cousins live about three hours away, so they come and stay with my Grandma every school holiday. It's become a tradition in my family that my mum and I arrange an Easter egg hunt for my younger cousins. We hide eggs in our back garden and watch the kids run around trying to find them all. It's a lot of fun. One year we had an Easter egg hunt in July because it rained so much in the Easter holidays that we had to postpone the hunt. Fingers crossed that next week the sun will be shining.

I hope you all have a fantastic Easter weekend with lots of chocolate and fun.

    1. Thank you Donna. I did miss it a lot when I cut it out. I find I'm ok with dairy though but I do need to cut down on the sugar again. I'm hoping with the warmer weather I will feel more like giving it my best shot again.

  12. I love Easter mainly because it means I get a four day weekend haha! I don't really do anything for it though (I don't even really buy Easter eggs, but I do indulge in more chocolate than usual). Honestly, your weekend of eating sundaes followed by watching Paddington Bear and eating more chocolate sounds fantastic :).
