Like everyone else in the UK we had a long weekend for Easter (or “unspecified Spring holiday” as we now call it, haha) and that means we got to do lots of fun stuff. It mainly involved eating.
Actually I met a Dutch guy yesterday and he said “Does everything social in the UK involve eating and drinking (alcohol)?” and I had to concede that yes, it does. I have to say I envy other cultures who don’t feel the overwhelming urge to get fat/drunk/fatanddrunk in order to have fun. It gets a bit tiring!
Anyway here are some edited highlights of the Easter break. Not included: all you can eat/drink dim sum. I should have taken photos but I was a bit ashamed of the gluttony (plus too busy shoving dim sum down my throat). Just imagine it was fun.
I’m as big a fan of Easter as anyone… 😉
Then I made a cake. It was my friend’s 40th and we had a great lunch – private dining. The awesome thing is my BFF came from overseas so I got to see her, too. As it was Easter, it was Easter themed!
Chocolate truffle cake with white chocolate buttercream covered in chocolate wrapping and topped with four types of chocolate sprinkles, two types of chocolate buttons and three types of chocolate egg.
Kind of sucks if you don’t like chocolate! 😉🍫
