~ Easter Weekend ~

I Hope everybody is having a great weekend, did the Easter Bunny arrive in your house today ???
I have very quite children at the moment,they re scoffing copious amounts of chocolate whilst watching Harry Potter on the telly .......we never tire of Harry.
The hubby has just finished the mountain of washing up,after our Easter lunch,we had a lovely pork roast with apple and apricot stuffing,I never buy lamb,I used to live in a small country village,and in the farmer's field at the end of our garden lived all the sheep and baby lambs,and I never got over the noises the mammy sheep made when the lamb's went to market,I'm not judging any body that likes lamb,It's just my personal thing,pigs might do the same thing ,only I never heard them .......Ohhhhh ,I'm beginning to tie myself in knot's now with my rambling.!

On Friday we took the kids to two Castles yes two!! ,we are lucky enough to live a small drive away from a number of English Heritage sites,we went to Barnard castle first and then Richmond Castle a few hrs later ,we had a fantastic day ,Richmond Castle were hosting an egg hunt,so the kids had a great time hunting around the old ruins
Now It is myyy time to just sit and relax,what do you think??,hope you are relaxing too xx

Hello sweet Manda! Thank you for visiting me and for your lovely comment! Beautiful capture of your pretty tulip! We love Harry too, and never tire of him either! Your Easter lunch sounds so yummy! I love what you shared about the lambs! They are so sweet, I haven't eaten any in years either! Oh, it would break my heart to hear the mommy lamb's when their babies are taken to market.

I am so glad y'all enjoyed the beautiful castles and live near two of them! My son and I would love that! We love medieval history and dream of being able to visit your beautiful country one day! Thank you for sharing all of the gorgeous photos! I enjoyed them so very much! Your Easter treats look yummy! I am glad your day was a lovely one! Take care! Love, Paula xo
