How Easter shaped up

toasted hot cross bun

I'll be honest, Easter to me is a rare luxury of 4 days off on the trot but little more. As I neither worship God nor chocolate there is just a treasured four day weekend with Chris and Lincoln to look forward to.

The weather has been a bit of a mixed bag but I mustn't really complain, hardly any rain and a few hours of sunshine with mild temperature although more of a breeze than preferable. We've not been overly busy yet at the same time I've found myself with plenty to share with you (coming soon, if I can ever get round to preparing posts!).

It's been a greedy weekend of course; a reckless purchase of two four-packs of hot cross buns was just asking for trouble, especially as Chris wont even eat them. Toasted is best in my opinion, with plenty of butter (ok, light spread shhhh).

Lazy; snuggles with my little possum Lincoln.

Munchy; steak sarnie, beef hash and funky bacon beans plus roast lamb. Snacks galore, don't even ask!

Pub dinner and a few drinks although it was extremely quiet on Thursday considering most people would surely have the Friday off. Some drunk woman stopped me to compliment my dress but later appeared to be taking the mick, c'est la vie. I had a lollypop to keep me happy after the most succulent burger I've ever eaten. Mmmm.



Cooked breakfasts – food fit for a queen

Best discovery ever goes to a Poundland purchase of these peanut butter flavour malteasers. Chris was so miffed I ate most of these, I'm just hoping I can stock up again.

Things have been getting rather exciting lately, topping 300 Bloglovin' followers and 10k comments on the blog (woah!). I have quite a few posts coming up that I'm feeling really good about including a super – exciting giveaway coming this week that you will not want to miss FOR SURE! Thank you to all the old faithfuls that have stuck around for years – ever supportive (you know who you are) and any newbies who have recently found me. I really can't express how grateful I am that you've dropped by.

Ok, so I did eat two little bars of chocolate. Shhh.

  1. We bought two packets of hot x buns from M&S, we had them for breakfast on Saturday and Sunday and now they're all gone :( I had mine slathered in butter ... so so so so so good! I'm already feeling guilty about all the rubbish I've been eating this weekend, I need to be super healthy tomorrow!

  5. All that food looks yummy. I made three batches of hot cross buns over the weekend. I couldn't believe how quickly they got eaten.

  6. I'm really pleased with the fact that although I made hot cross buns, I only ate one and took the other ten around to my parents' when I went for family lunch. Same with the chocolate nests I made and I managed to avoid eating any Easter eggs at all, although at one point I did really fancy a creme egg. Not enough to go and buy one though.
    I'm not religious either but enjoyed a three day weekend of sewing and allotment time and a rare chance to spend some time with OH, who is off again to work for a client in Germany for the next two weeks.

  7. yum hot cross buns and yuck peanut maltesers,,,sorry I just hate nuts especially peanuts ha ha.

  8. I love hot cross buns, so how it is that I haven't eaten any yet!!
    Sounds like you had a great weekend. I had no plans but managed to get out and about and get things done - I love a satisfying weekend of pottering about.
    So what if she didn't like your dress - rude bitch needs to learn some manners (and how to hold her drink).
    Your weekend eating looks mighty fine but how did you come by a lollipop in a bar? Now, that's a bar I could easily frequent!

  9. ok, hold on. How do I not know about peanut butter flavoured malteasers?! Not very nice of that woman... sounds like you had a bit of a Mean Girls moment!

    You can never go wrong with lots of hot cross buns!
