This is a hard one.  April has been full of so many things.  We have seen the garden come into bloom and the blossom has been spectacular.  And we have had lots of lovely parties and gatherings because of all the Bank Holidays.

Easter was great fun.  My Dad was here and we were all invited to some new friends for an Easter Egg Hunt.  It turned into an all day session, Dad (at 75) putting all of us youngsters to shame! And we played croquet for the first time.  All the children ran and ran until they were shattered, and we had a wonderful time.  I have made more friends here in six months than I did in six years where we used to live.

The Royal Wedding was another excuse for a party, this time at our house.  We had bunting, flags, commemorative gifts, patriotic cakes, the works!  And what a gorgeous occasion it turned out to be.  The bride looked beautiful (although Mr Pink was more taken with her sister), the groom looked handsome in his striking uniform and they both looked utterly and completely in love.

So the choice of a photo is a tricky one this time, but I am plumping for this one.

This is Oscar who belongs to my friend B.  He found the Sticky Ginger Cake that I had made for the Royal Wedding just too tempting and gobbled the whole lot before anyone else had chance to taste it!  Apparently ginger is a great laxative for dogs!!
