Well the Hen Party date rolled round pretty quickly, you think you have ages to get something done then wham! you're there!!
Friday night was the Greek meal night, all but one person turned up so that was a relief.
With Stevie's help I managed to get all the part bags sorted, I put her in charge of decorating them while I finished off the brooches, which, if I do say so myself turned out ok :-)
They ended up taking far longer than I expected, and I was so glad when they were finished and the bags were filled.
It was a typical Greek night, the food was fantastic and there was dancing and plate smashing thrown in too, the restaurant is only small and has a really nice atmosphere, the staff get everyone up and dancing and joining in so that it becomes like one big party.
Saturday morning we had to be up bright and early to get the train to London.
The trip wasn't without it's dramas, Joanne is our drama queen, always has been and we really didn't expect to go the whole weekend without one, thankfully she got it out of the way on Saturday evening so that we could enjoy our afternoon tea at the Savoy :-)
Finger sandwiches for the first course, scones with jam and cream second course, plates were re-filled as soon as they were empty, as was your tea cup :-)
There was a choice of afternoon tea or high tea.
Jenny and Joanne opted for afternoon tea so the third course consisted of a selection of French pastries
We had to go in the M&M shop of course!
This bus made me feel old, I remember going to school on a bus just like this, lol
And the most beautiful bridge in the world, (well I think so).
I love everything about London, every time I go I am always amazed.
The old blending with the new
We walked from the Savoy all the way to Saint Paul's passing St Brides in Fleet Street on the way, did you know that this building was the inspiration for the tiered wedding cake?
The blue chicken in Leicester Square has been replace by a dinosaur.
Old and new again
We walked so much this weekend but it was worth the aching legs :-)
Easter Monday was a beautiful day, the warmest this year so far, t shirt weather :-)
and the garden is finally showing signs of life, this is the first time we have seen the garden at this time of year and I'm pleased to see so much yellow.
And lots of purple too, this is sprouting up all over.
Some things are almost in flower
And some things are well on their way
The prickly one I almost dug up because I don't like where it is has the most beautiful and unusual flower
A little closer, they look like sprouts, lol
The flower head is beautiful, and I do prefer this or yellow roses to the more traditional red.
As the weather was so good on Monday we had a little Easter egg hunt in the garden for Oliver
He had fun looking for the little bunnies I had hidden around the garden, and once he discovered that where there was a bunny there was also a chocolate egg there was no stopping him, lol
I hope the weather has been kind to you too and you have had a blessed Easter.
Until next time
