There is nothing Jacs and I like more than chocolate and sunshine! We are both looking forward to the warmer weather - reading outside, ice creams, beach walks and impromptu feet dipping in the sea, topping up ours tan (OK, Jacs is going to be doing it on my behalf!). Today was just a little taste of sunshine to remind us of the summer months ahead with the added bonus of chocolate eating!
A very quick visit to my cousins in Frankfurt kick started the Easter excitement. This dish is one of their Easter decorations although there were definitely more eggs in it when I arrived!
It could not have been more perfect weather for a picnic lunch and a small Easter egg hunt. Pittenweem has been blessed this weekend - the sun was shining, there were very few clouds in the sky and the sea breeze was not too chilly. I had a lovely afternoon with Andrea, Emily and Hannah and we were later joined by Anna for our Easter egg hunt! It was so warm at one point that Hannah and I debated about whether suncream might be needed!
Lunch was eaten on my overgrown lawn and was a mixture of salads and dips followed by some healthy cookies with apricots. It was so warm on the picnic blanket...we could have easily stayed there all day had Emily not been worried about the Pittenweem Sea Monster taking her car at high tide!
Anna arrived just in time for strawberries on the pier which gave me some time to hide some eggs up the nearest wynd. In plant pots, on windowsills, stone walls, moss, buildings. There was definitely a competitive spirit between these girls - just look at them running after the eggs!
After two wynds and a few easter eggs, the bowls were filled and Pittenweem was full of very giggly girls. I think we might have to repeat this next year...
I hope you all had a lovely day today filled with friends, family, chocolate and sunshine...
