HAPPY EASTER

Hope you had a blessed Easter. The weather could have been kinder, but it wasn't so hey ho what did we do? Plans to crack on with the garden went up the wall much to Stuart's dismay - my hubby gets bored very easily...
Out for dinner with Richard and Julie on Saturday to Lazzaat, an Indian restaurant up the road from us - have to say the food was good and very friendly service. will definitely be going again.

Cathy, Terry and Steve joined us for Sunday lunch - which I made by myself, i stress about cooking for lots of people, there were 8 of us in total, enough for me - but I can happily say that everything was perfect.

China made some cup cakes, been a week of cupcakes, as Jodie made lots during the week, mmmm, heavenly but not good for the weight!!!

These were the first ones made from the "Little Treats" recipe, which was a giveaway on Facebook...

and then China made some cakes for the guests on Sunday.

Stuart and I have been working in the garden, loving seeing it come together...
 My vegetable plot - I am excited about starting this off - watching things grow - well fingers crossed lol, cos believe me I don't have green fingers.

 Stuart got his Signs up on his Garage door, one I bought him,  the Sanctuary one
 and the one from our friends/family in the U.S - BARBARA and family - Maxx and Maddy the grandkids. Maxx loves to share anything to do with cars with Uncle Stuart :)  The license plates cut to make the name look well cool. NOw Stuart  has decided he wants to decorate these doors with more plaques so he will have some outside art...

Talking of art I will do a separate post tomorrow with my latest art pieces... Whereever you are and whatever you celebrate, may you have a peaceful time xx

Nice spring post Dawn. If you live in a walkable area to a village or other shopping, perhaps you could have a private little art show in your yard! I live in the burbs and the area is not very walkable with the mountains-always thought it would be fun to have a cottage in a village to display my work.

Cupcakes have made me very hungry-they look yummy.
