Holiday time

Easter has been and gone for another year...

On Easter day we went to a baptism service for Ben, a 14 year old family friend. It took place at a lovely little sandstone church in Thornton Hough, a pretty village not far from here. It was a simple service but joyful and good. Here's a picture of Ben with my three boys, taken after the service.

The other big event this weekend has been a renewed attempt to sort out our very messy garage. We have almost completely filled a skip we had delivered on Saturday... but we still seem to have so much stuff!!

And I have come to the conclusion that the weather is seriously not my friend just now!! On Saturday just when we had bikes, suitcases and furniture out of the garage strewn all over the driveway it started to snow... we hurriedly returned everything to the garage, and then it stopped, just like that! Okay, it did snow and hail a bit more later but..
Then when I was hanging out washing yesterday five random snowflakes fell on me as if in warning, luckily the clothes were just about dry before the hail started an hour or two later!!!

And now it is school holidays, no rush, no hassle for a fortnight, Yay!!

The boys are off on camp next weekend and Ian and I are going to spend a night and day together in Brussels will that do?

We woke to three inches of snow on Sunday morning - but it all melted in the sunshine. It's been snowing again and there's a light dusting.
Enjoy the holiday - I'm off to Germany on Wednesday and will be back on 4th April.

It's been snowing on and off here all weekend but nothing has stuck at all...

Enjoy Germany, maybe we could meet up sometime later in April before mum and I head off to Italy at the beginning of May?

I agree, Matthew was an Easter baptism many years ago, lovely...

And thanks, unfortunately my work doesn't really stop in the school holidays - nice to have the boys home though!

I know all about the snow stopping and starting at inconvenient moments! It is a plot,I am sure .....
