March in Pictures


A bit late, but here's what March had to offer.

There was a lovely wedding (with a table of canape cakes and a marshmallow tree), a trip to Pettigrew Tea Rooms for afternoon tea (thank you, Dave!), the making (and eating) of many cakes, lots and lots of cosy nights in by the fire, cups of tea in the garden when the sun shone, evening dog walks when the clocks changed, big family meals for Mothers Day and Easter.

There was also one of those perfect days that I'll always remember. Nothing too exciting but everything just went right. We parked at Penarth marina, walked (me, Wilf and Dave) and scootered (Gwen and Molly) across to Cardiff Bay, had delicious pizza for lunch then pootled on back. The sun was shining. Everyone was happy. No one fell over or peed on their shoes. Just perfect. We all went to bed shattered, smelling of fresh air and full of ice cream.

The school Easter holidays were blooming freezing, so the big long list of outdoor activities I had planned didn't quite work out. Still, there was making dinosaur masks at the museum, eating sparkling ice cream at Pili Pala cafe, scootering for miles on the community route (Gwen has actually worn out the shoe of her scootering foot), making Easter nest cakes and an egg treasure hunt.

(Looking at the images I've chosen, there is an awful lot of cake and ice cream going on - but I guess that's what you need to keep you going when it looks like winter ain't never going to end. Oh well, expect lots of pictures of salads and smoothies in April. Maybe.)

  2. Love this. Another great montage. Yes, lots of cake and ice cream but we need the extra sugar in a cold spring, fact. x

    1. Agreed! Sugar = energy for cold weather :-)
