Happy Easter to all!
This year is one of the rare ocurrences when Western Easter and Greek Easter fall on the same Sunday. The Greek hubby is at the relatives in Washington, roasting lamb in the front yard. I'm stuck at home because grandchild #2 is due to put in his appearance any hour, and I'm the designated babysitter for grandchild #1 while parents are at the hospital.

He is Risen!

Happy Easter.

Normally I'm more excited about it, only because the weather means is going to change for the better, but since Easter is so late this year and the weather hasnt change it has made me a little dreary.

I'm about to relax in the sun in the garden. It's been the hottest April in the UK for 100 years!

Yup, for once the UK has decent weather on a holiday weekend!

Happy Easter everyone - and Passover too, although it's nearly finished.

Happy Easter to you! Happy Easter to you! Happy Easter to everyone. Happy Easter to you!

I have made my famous potato salad to go with the ham we'll be having and extended an open invitation to my parents if they feel up to visiting my circus. Otherwise a quiet (ha ha ha) day at home. Weather's nice though. Almost warm and the clouds are clearing out.
