Our Easter weekend in photos!

Dear mummy, phew! What another hectic weekend! We like being busy even in the mixed weather.

Eat Street at Festival Place
Multi Michelin Star award winning chef Jean-Christophe Novelli

Over the Easter weekend we visited #EatStreet at Basingstoke’s Festival Place Shopping Centre. Here we picked up some last-minute chocolate from Hotel Chocolate, enjoyed free food tasting from Costa and Nado’s and watched the talented multi Michelin Star chef Jean-Christophe Novelli put on a live cooking demo. The weather was horrible and it was a lovely way of spending a rainy afternoon out of the house.

On Saturday we visited Exbury Gardens, in the New Forest. We were supposed to be visiting on Good Friday but chose the better day to visit.

However it was very windy and overcast, still it didn’t dampen our spirits as we ran through the daffodil fields and saw the beautiful flowers!

I chickened out of the steam train ride to see the Easter Bunny as I got scared of the bunny man (more like boogie man!) I get frightened really easily of large mascots and characters.

Easter Egg Hunt at Highclere Castle

On Easter Sunday, we braved the weather and went to Highclere Castle (where they film Downton Abbey) to join the Lady of the manor on an Easter Egg Hunt in aid of Naomi House and Jacksplace. We had a great time at the Easter Fair.

Bank Holiday Monday was a more quiet affair as we saw my Grandparents down in Hayling Island and spend the day by the seaside. We weren’t brave enough to go skinny dipping though!! We hope you had a great Easter weekend too.

  1. Wow you had a fab weekend! Love the photo’s too. The Castle photo is amazing 🙂 We had a fun and busy weekend too, with great weather. We were so lucky. Had such a lovely 4 days off together with Hubs! Happy easter – Jess x #PointShoot

    1. My mummy got it from a nearly new sale for a fiver a month or so ago…I think it’s ‘Brights & Stripes’ US company who sadly have gone bust :(…I think – there is no label :-/

  2. All gorgeous photos and Wow your photo of the daffodils is stunning! Such beautiful colours. We have a while to wait until the daffodils are out here in Australia, they are beautiful flowers though.

  3. Oh wow, looks like you had a fab weekend! I love the serious squirrel face at the castle (and of course the cute little coat,too!). Thanks for linking up with Living Arrows! x
