He’s hiding behind that tree…
One of the many sculptures spotted at Burghley House, near Stamford in Lincolnshire, which we visited on a glorious Good Friday. I’ll do a separate post about the gardens in due course but I couldn’t resist sharing an Easter Bunny with you today.
Life is settling back down to normal after our whirlwind skiing trip which I have talked about at length…apologies! We had a visit to Exeter at the beginning of March to see Rory for his 20th birthday. We only stayed a couple of nights and Rory was at lectures during the day, but we had two lovely meals with him and Juliana plus a day to ourselves in Dawlish.
We’ve booked a week’s holiday in North Devon quite soon. I can’t wait to go, to be near the beach, just the four of us, going for walks and just spending time together. It’s so good that we all get on so well. Juliana is very much part of our family now: they’ve been a couple for well over three years now.
I’m still writing my column for the Lincolnshire Free Press so here’s a few from the last few months that you might like. As always, it’s great discipline for me to write to order but it does mean the blog tends to miss out on all the random family stuff – until I do a catch-up post like this.
Hope you are all enjoying a lovely, if blowy, Easter weekend.
