My big fat Greek Easter
Farmer Nick is half Greek and come Easter time we do like to join up with family and friends for a traditional Greek Easter party. "Christos Anesti" is the welcome message ("Christ is Risen"); my Greek doesn't extend much past this, but the traditions are legendary. My amazing 76 year old Mother in Law hosted this year's festivities in her in beautiful Sussex garden. It made a lovely break for us staying over for a few days and the children loved catching up with all their cousins.
A Feast for Kings and Queens
Food and Drink is the staple of the day, including a full spit roast lamb kept us going for days after!
Especialy for the children
The children bounced away all their calories away, the same cannot be said for the grownups; hang on, is that Farmer Nick on the bouncy castle there?
Painted hard boiled eggs are played rather like conkers

Who needs trees?
My children in the local town of Lewes were like the original country bumpkins, there may not be trees but they are happy climbing the buildings; fortunately there is a gorgeous park too or we may have been sent back to Cornwall!
