Easter greetings to everyone! I woke up this morning feeling full of energy - the spring sunshine is so wonderful. I spent the morning doing some baking (every now and then I need a little fix of measuring and mixing and have been doing quite a lot lately.) The recipes included Coconut and Almond Cake with Mango and Passion Fruit Syrup for dessert this afternoon and Wheatabix Muffins for breakfast.
While baking I listened to Steve Wright's Sunday Love Songs on BBC Radio 2. It is a very long running show full of dedications to loved ones and mostly cheesy music - while I don't really like the show, I often end up listening on Sundays while drinking a cup of tea and putzing around in the kitchen. I find the Lost Loves segment of the show very interesting - today a woman called Claire was looking to be reunited with a guy called Ken who she met in Wales on a summer fling forty years ago. Hmm - I felt curious about what Claire would hope might come out of this reunion?
Anyway, carrying on with the energy theme I went and swam at the gym which I am really enjoying lately - I love blocking out the whole world with my ear plugs and my bathing cap - refreshingly it's just me and the deep blue.
This afternoon we enjoyed some nice time with our families - Stuart's parents hosted us all for a lovely Easter dinner. Tonight Stu and I are maxin' and relaxin' (yes, that was a Fresh Prince reference) and very much enjoying the prospect of no work tomorrow! So far on the agenda, I have scheduled myself to eat a Cadbury's Cream Egg. I'll keep you posted if anymore concrete plans materialise!
