Light entertainment for Easter 2019
« on: April 20, 2019, 04:34:51 PM »
There is to be NO discussion of the Madeleine case on this thread.  That's why it is simply light entertainment for Easter.  OK?

My son-in-law is out in the garden right now mowing the lawn.  We have our family visiting (2 adults + 3 children).  The plan is to have an Easter BBQ tomorrow.  The shopping has been done.  We are now fingers-crossed on the weather.  That has been good from the point of watering our crops and replenishing our reservoirs, but what we need tomorrow is a dry day.  Not necessarily sunny, just dry.

In total between us, we have 5 young children.  Plus a bucketload of Ester eggs purchased today.  Plus a lawn currently being mowed.

We're working hard at arranging an Easter egg hunt for the littlies.

What are you getting up to this Easter?

We're having beautiful weather.
Easter Sunday is expected to be just as lovely.
We are preparing to have sixteen for dinner.
No barbecue, my hubby hates them..

There will be the traditional Easter egg hunt for the grandchildren who are now twenty, eighteen, fifteen thirteen and twelve.lol.
Two new additions to the Easter fun, both grandsons have girlfriends,
The morning will begin with going to  church.
Then it will be busy, busy busy.
The family chip in with the cooking.
One  daughter  in law making Daupinoise, a grandson making cauliflower cheese, one son making Minestrone soup and one of the girlfriends making Polish cheesecake.
Cooking four different roasts.
Lamb, roast beef, turkey and Quorn.
All very traditional.
Easter blessings to all.

Indeed it is!
Normally if there is a crowd,  we buy  Chinese Take away.
Just doesn't seem right for Easter.
I'm in the process of reducing the times we do the hosting. 8((()*/

I was invited out to dinner last night and had Raclette for the first time ever.  It was excellent, and so was the company.

My cheese, by the way.  Courtesy of The Food Bank.  They seem to have quite a lot of that at the moment.

Is Easter a very religious occasion in France?

Easter is wholly Religious in France, but all of the shops are open, even on Easter Friday Morning.  France is a Catholic Country, but a bit laid back about it all.  It seems to me to be more of a way of life than a Religion.  People are inherently kind in a way in which disappeared from Britain a very long time ago.

There are still inherently kind people in the UK.
