Bantam Eggs

When I was very little we kept hens for many years. I am very pleased that one of our grandsons looks after the nine bantam hens at his school. Today his family all came to stay for a few days.

Our grandson brought 4 eggs so we can share these for breakfast. They are smaller than normal "shop" free-range eggs but I expect they will taste delicious.

He has even decorated the egg box, which I expect he will take home.

Easter Egg Hunts


Amandine, Jo and Lucien  after the Easter egg hunt
After lunch today, Easter Sunday, we had an Easter Egg hunt in the back garden for Amandine and Lucien, our 2 "London" grandchildren organised by their mum who joined us today. Their dad is due to join us Easter Monday when the little ones go home again: we'll miss them. Several times this afternoon we found Amandine secretly nibbling chocolate Easter eggs.

This afternoon was the first day our local Burwell museum and windmill were open. Our grandchildren all love visiting as there is lots for youngsters to see and do. Our 6.5 year old grandson enjoyed hunting for Easter Eggs in the form of numbered pictures . He managed to find 24 all together. This year the windmill is open too.
