Easter Weekend 2016

A very early Easter meant that the Bank Holiday weekend  
was disconnected from the main Spring Break holiday.

We had a busy Good Friday - 
with a reflective service in the morning and children's activities in the afternoon -
and then on the Saturday morning we went to open up the caravan 
{leaving Megs behind for a party.}
 We spent the afternoon in Llandudno - first trip to the Looking Glass Ice Cream Parlour.



Easter Sunday morning we celebrated the resurrection at St Johns in Conwy





and in the afternoon Megs came to join us with Gma and Gpa.


{Easter Sunday Sunset from West Shore}

We headed home on the bank Holiday Monday afternoon -
with stop at TGIFridays Cheshire Oaks to let the traffic disperse.




Back to school tomorrow for a last 4 days before the two week Spring Break Holiday!

Dr Faustus at the RSC

One of our FAVOURITE plays -
and Megs is studying it in her theatre studies A level -
so we were off to Stratford again.



It was a lovely spring day - warm enough to have coffee by the Avon - 
with that glorious feeling of 'We've survived another winter!"


The play itself was brilliant - 
the roles of Faustus and Mephistopheles swapped about by the lead actors - 
they walked onto stage, stuck a match, and whosoever's went out first
 played Faustus for that performance.

Songs, and music and dancing - 
and a Helen of Troy scene that ripped my heart out.
Loved it!

And Ben - he did his sit in the cafe and watch on his tablet thing :)

Mothering Sunday 2016

My Mum and Dad were in London visiting Jonathan, Karen and  Katharine....

so instead of a new picture with Mum I found this old one instead from Spring 1971.


I spent most of the weekend (minus Church) on Open University course work -
but I did get 2 lovely cards, a photo collage from Megs and the most beautiful flowers -
so all was good!
