Back To Reality But Not For Long

Hope you all had a lovely Easter bank holiday weekend, it was lovely wasn't it?  The weather was glorious, well almost.  We did have a storm on Saturday evening which I thought was rather exciting, I love watching storms while I am all nice and dry inside from the comfort of home.  Other then that the sun was shining and the temperatures were scorching.

Most of my weekend was spent with the neighbours out in the garden catching the rays and eating lots of BBQ food, yum, in fact the only exception to this was Friday.  It was my Nan's birthday on Sunday and as you can imagine with the loss of my Grandad a couple of months ago we were a little concerned with how she would cope.  We invited her round to ours for the weekend and spent Friday out and about in the sunshine.

We started off at the RHS Hyde Hall Gardens.  This is where the majority of the day was spent and lots of photos were taken.

From here we moved on to Battlesbridge for a quick stop at the antiques centre and finished off at Paper Mill Lock with a scone topped with clotted cream, jam and a strawberry - delicious.  For some reason after the gardens I didn't take any photos (shame on me, I know) sorry ladies, next time, I promise : )  I was just too busy enjoying the time with my family.

What did you get up to over your Easter weekend?
