Happy Easter

We had a lovely sunny Easter Sunny here on the south slopes of the Preseli Hills. It was the perfect day for drying washing too - wall to wall sunshine and a brisk breeze to ward off torpor. We began, of course, with the traditional egg hunt in the garden.

All eggs were discovered before they melted in the warm sunshine.

Then it was off for a long walk with the dog to run off all that chocolate.

The sheep had the right idea and spent the day lying around in the sun. Even the lambs found it too warm for much frolicking. Only three are left to lamb now and Lazarus, the lamb from the previous post, has rallied and is busily trying to grow into his too-big pyjamas.

And we have a world record - I'm too poorly to eat chocolate, so my Easter eggs, for the first time ever remain untouched. I had to make do with a couple of stiff hot toddies instead. Oh well!


  1. So sorry you're poorly Mags - do get better soon. This way there'll be delayed chocolate gratification.

    Lovely photos

  2. Keep those eggs under lock and key for when you are better - which I hope will be very soon. Keep taking the medicine.

  3. Lovely photo of the girls beaming with baskets of eggs. You must be ill if you can't eat chocolate!

  4. Hope you get better soon Mags. Pouring here today so that has put paid to anymore beach pics from me! x

  5. Those girls look thrilled with the results of the Easter egg hunt.

    Those photos of the wide open sky over bright green fields was also pretty thrilling to this city dweller.

    Hoping you are feeling better soon. Perhaps a few of the choc eggs are still hidden away, awaiting your recovery?


  6. Hope you are feeling better now. Hot whisky toddies are only a small comfort if you can't eat your chocolate eggs. But wasn't it a splendid day for Easter here in West Wales? What happened to today? Return to normal.

  7. I am so sorry to hear you are not well and hope you will be better soon, chocolate or no chocolate. Please take care of yourself. I can't picture exactly where in the south Preselis you love, but feel sure it is near my sister. I love it in that part of Wales.

  8. Sorry to read that you are poorly - but how lovely to have such beautiful sunshine over the weekend - we had grey, leaden skies for all four days... Take care and hope you're feeling better very soon. WArm wishes, Vxx

  9. Hope you're on the mend PM. Lovely photos in this blog, I particularly like the first one one with the egg in the rock.


I am sorry to have to add word verification thing again but I keep getting spammed.
