Easter weekend

April 10, 2015

The days leading up to the Easter weekend were super busy, so I was more than happy to spend most of Easter Sunday and Monday relaxing at my parents house. There’s nothing like spending time eating good food with the people that you love. Here are a few photos from the bank holiday weekend.

^^We began Easter morning by opening our Easter eggs together, before our friends woke up. This was Ras’ Easter egg – he seemed interested at first, but only had a couple of bites before giving up. Oh well!^^

^^Trout bought me a Hotel Chocolat milk-free milk chocolate egg. It’s pretty good – but I think it could be creamier. Maybe Ras would have been more interested in mine? We spent the rest of the morning enjoying brunch with friends, and playing on the F1 scalextric that Trout received for his birthday from friends.^^

 

^^I think Ras loved it more than anyone!^^

^^Later in the afternoon we drove over to my family’s home for an early meal together. We had a cranberry nut roast with roast potatoes, carrots, broccoli, spring greens and asparagus, followed by Christmas pudding. It was so good! I’ll never pass up the offer of Christmas pudding, even if it was four months later. As my Mum wisely pointed out – it’s a celebration pudding.^^

^^I don’t know how I managed to get it in a perfect circle, especially as it was a joint dishing-up effort between me and my sister!^^

^^On Monday morning we took a trip on a steam train together as a family. For Christmas/Easter Trout and I bought my family tickets, and it was so much fun! The train left from Tunbridge Wells and ended at Eridge, before going back again.^^

^^Choo! Choo!^^

^^My Mum and my sister enjoying the train journey.^^

^^I wasn’t going to include this photo, but then I looked a little closer and realised that there is a kid photobombing us! Amazing. We were enjoying the trip more than we look ;)^^

^^I love the old station signs.^^

^^My sister sitting in the super cute waiting room at Eridge station.^^

^^After we got back to Tunbridge Wells we headed to The Pantiles for lunch at my sister’s favourite cafe, Juliette’s. It’s a very sweet cafe and they have a good understanding of what’s vegan and what isn’t, so there’s usually something we can eat. These salads were pretty good, and the soup was lovely.^^

^^Hey Jasper! After lunch Trout and I did a bit of shopping then headed back to my parents for a few more cuddles with the dogs, before heading home for an evening outside with Ras.^^

I hope you all had a lovely Easter, enjoyed some time with family and ate plenty of chocolate for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and all the snacks in between.
