Easter Trail at Clent Hills

We’ve been doing the Cadbury Easter Trails with the kids for a few years now, at various National Trust properties (Hanbury Hall in 2014, Buckland Abbey in 2013). This year we were unsure that we would get to do one, as we have been incredibly busy over the Easter holiday doing up the girls bedroom.  Luckily we had a window of time on Easter Sunday… Continue Reading “Easter Trail at Clent Hills”

Easter Hunting with Lindt

Lindt are “bringing the joy of Easter to life” with Lindt Gold Bunny Hunts at various beautiful venues across the UK this Easter, and we were asked if we would like to check it out.

As soon as she saw what was inside the parcel she wanted to get stuck in and decorate her chocolate egg. The… Continue Reading “An amazing chocolate Easter creation!”

On Saturday morning we all piled into a couple of cars and headed over to Buckland Abbey, a National Trust property about an hour away from my parent’s house, to take part in the Cadbury Easter Egg Trail they were putting on all weekend.

In the Kitchen: Easter brownies

I had to give up baking towards the end of my pregnancy, as my massive bump was getting in the way a bit! Now with Lydia starting to get into a routine, and my afternoons returning to being my “me time”, I’m getting my baking mojo back. I baked some of my cheese & bacon muffins at the weekend, and yesterday I did a double… Continue Reading “In the Kitchen: Easter brownies”
