What did you do this Easter?

 :: We climbed Trees :: 

:: We saw the most amazing Azalea's ::

:: We had 2 Easter Egg Hunts ::
(one at the house - ridiculously early, and one at Trevarno Estate)

:: We saw DRAGONS ::

:: We held hands and strolled amongst the Bluebells ::

:: We played on a nearly empty Beach ::

:: Where we jumped Waves ::

::  Basically we had a BLAST ::


...In the sunshine!

...and I am not even going to apologise for the ridiculous amount of photo's.

Oh - and this one is for you Diane... found at Prussia Cove

Chippy Supper

Sometimes, when the evening is as nice and warm as it is tonight - we just have to take a drive out to Sennen Cove for a Chippy Supper, sat on the bench in the bay.

It is particularly high tide at the moment due to the full moon tonight...

We popped to Godrevy on a rather cloudy (but warmish) Friday last week for a quick coffee in between a crazy work schedule
Rather spectacular Waves crashing on the rocks
And Mr Seal popped up just off the rock we were sitting on to say "hi"
Then on Sunday, as the Sun was out - we decided to pop there again for a picnic

Turnstone picking through the Mussels
More great Waves...this time with a BLUE sky 
This was our view from our picnic spot!
I will never tire of being able to do this...just a couple of days difference and such different landscapes!

Morning Tea

I woke up a little earlier than expected this morning (7.30 for a Sunday!?)

Seeing it was Sunny outside I couldn't lie in bed any longer...  so I got up, made a cup of tea then went and sat outside (with a blanket).  We are lucky to live in a quite cul-de-sac so all I could hear were the birds singing! (Dominated by the seagulls of course)
A quick flick through my Mum's Country Living before it gets posted to France ;)

The tree's are really starting to sprout their leaves...soon we will no longer be able to see the sea

The sun just peaking through... the tree's full of birds and the occasional squirrel
What a lovely start the day!

Have a lovely weekend everyone

I did make it there and back I promise...
The weather was LOVELY (read warm and sunny)
We did some night velibbing around the city
See - BLUE skies...
Since coming back on has been CRAZY
I finished off my week with a MIDNIGHT finish last night!  
Phew - madness!

So sorry these are a little late!

But we had a BLAST!

It's beginning to feel a lot like... Easter?

I have been working on these little Easter bags for my gorgeous Nephew and Twin Nieces who are coming to visit at Easter.

They came last year, and I made up a little Easter Egg hunt that took them hopping, walking backwards and whistling around the house looking for eggs!  They ended in the Greenhouse where the "big prize" was which for some reason they found hilarious. 

I wasn't planning on doing one this year (just hadn't really thought about it yet), but I have been informed by my sister that the "hunt" is all the kids are talking about!  It is funny the things children remember.  

So - I now have my thinking cap on for imaginative ways for the children to scramble around the house looking for egg shaped goodies - and I think the little bags above will be at the end filled with um...not sure yet.  I might try some little felt monsters!

We are also planning to go to the Easter Egg hunt at Trevano... weather permitting!

BUT - I have a little trip in between now and then.... PARIS!  

Too Excited

I leave you with a picture of our Camellia which has FINALLY come out!
Such a lovely burst of colour at this time of year
