EasterAs I have said previously, I love traditions. Easter is a particularly lovely time of the year. Although my family are not overly religious, they don't me celebrating, and decorating the house to within an inch of its life.
I always start with an Easter tree. This came about when Cairis was a baby. We were hosting some German students and they brought some painted wooden eggs as a gift. I didn't know what to do with them, so they explained that they were hung on trees in their country.
The next year I accumulated a few more and the idea was born.
The cute little animals are a new addition. I'm planning to use them as place markers at the dinner table this evening.
I love inviting friends to dinner- and cooking a leg of lamb (even though I don't eat it) with lots of fresh vegetables, especially Jersey Royal Potatoes.
As I'm trying hard to lose weight, I shall be prudent when it comes to chocolate eggs, but I won't stop everyone else from indulging. Happy Easter :-)
