Spell of Sunshine

This week the sun has been out in full force, shining bright and giving gingers like myself some rather questionable burn marks.
So as a little bit of sun celebration, I thought I'd share with you all some little snapshots of my countryside living.

B.E.A.U...tiful sunny dog walks down the back routes are becoming a daily norm.

And my ruddy Labrador has finally developed a taste for anything dead.

Then yesterday I had the most brilliant of BBQ reunions with my old school chums down by the nearby Rutland Water.

We gorged ourselves on Katie's amazing tarts, Jenny's incredible cream egg brownies & a million other cakes, bakes and burgers.

I made a cheeky pavlova too.

We spent the whole afternoon stuffing ourselves silly, nattering away and playing rounders with a horrendously broken ball.

I couldn't think of a better way to be spending my Easter holidays.
What has everyone else been up to in the sun?


  1. Beautiful piccies! I know what it's like to be ginger in the sun! Ouch!!!!!
