HAPPY EASTER....

I hope all my friends are happy and enjoying this Easter weekend.

I have to tell you.... I had the most wonderful surprise on Good Friday. My son and his wife came over from Switzerland. The fact is, I knew nothing of their plan to visit. John had kept secret this big surprise.

As far as I was concerned, we were not expecting any guests to call over the weekend, so when an unfamiliar car (hired at the airport) pulled into our drive, I didn't immediately recognise the occupants, The sun was reflecting off the windscreen, making it difficult to see who it was.

It took a few seconds for all of this to sink in, but when it did! What joy! What a wonderful surprise! It has made this weekend so special and complete. I am so happy!

HAPPY EASTER everyone......

What a wonderful easter you must have had with the unexpected but wonderful company you got.

The 'Easter Bunny' certainly brought you a wonderful surprise - much better than any chocolate egg, and no calories, either.

How wonderful for you to have your son and his wife surprise you. The best gift of all for you too! Your primroses are so lovely in your Easter centerpiece...I haven't seen many this year so I'm enjoying seeing your decorations which are very pretty!

Marion, I'm so happy to see that you're posting again! Are you feeling better? I hope so!!!
What a truly wonderful surprise your son and his wife gave you for Easter. How very sweet and kind of them. Sounds like they didn't want you to fuss and this was such a treat for you, after being in so much pain. I'm glad it made you so happy.
I love your beautiful decorations.
Thanks very much for the lovely cards :)
