Easter weekend

Easter Sunday and what gorgeous sunshine yet again!
Wore my charity shop denim skirt today whilst we did the annual walk through the bluebell woods. I picked up the skirt in Beverley, East Yorkshire, for £2.

I love the charity shops up there. My inlaws moved there last year and the charity shops are bursting with amazing outfits as Beverley is considered a little bit posh. In the shadow of the minster, lies my favourite charity shop and that's where I picked up this skirt.

My dear Princess then gave me this little bunch of wild flowers as an Easter present. What a cutie. Check out the factor 50 sun cream on her forehead!

It has been a pretty chilled out day today. First of all the kids enjoyed an Easter egg hunt in the garden. Blazing sun and chocolate meant that I had to shriek when they were near the chocolate as I didn't want any to melt!

Then I put a leg of lamb in the oven and then we went on our bluebell walk. Lovely family stroll in the Berkshire countryside.

Hey Doll, you must come here next year as you'd not believe the bluebells in the wood next door, you'd L:O:V:E 'em! And I'd love a bluebell walk with you xxx

Thanks Julie, hope you had a lovely Easter too.
Gayna, would love to do that, aren't bluebells just stunning?!

Wasn't sure we'd make the walk this year as have been on the Isle of Wight but managed to fit in an early afternoon Easter egg hunt, walk and roast lamb dinner when we got back.
