Happy Easter!

Happy Easter to you all!

Ted and I were kicking our heels a bit- another drearily wet day dampened gardening plans, and making a start on my end-of-year accounts was too daunting to even contemplate.
Not in the mood for spring cleaning (am I ever?) Too wet to ride Bruce.
Too early to eat Easter eggs.

So the suggestion of a country pub lunch meant coat and lippie were on in seconds and I was out the door in a flash!

We stopped off briefly in Shaftesbury and admired the windswept view from the top of Gold Hill where they filmed the Hovis bread advert.

Then we drove towards Gillingham and found the Ship Inn at West Stour.

Oooh bliss!
Smiling staff, comfy decor and the tastiest food ever!
We shared warm olives and homemade bread for starters, battled our way through huge portions of beautifully fresh fish for mains...and then I was FORCED to eat winter berry Eton mess for pudding. Heaven in a dish!

Hope your day was as tasty!

Your lunch sounded delicious, I am sitting here feeling hungry waiting for my dinner which is being cooked for me as a treat ! My day was similar to yours, such miserable weather stopped us getting out in the garden so we ended up jumping in the car and going out for lunch. Hopefully the weather will brighten up a bit over the weekend.

Wet and windy here too, but yours sounds the best solution. Have to drop some hints tomorrow!
Happy Easter :)

We went to Hardwick Hall at National Trust house in Derbyshire determined not to let the weather dampen our day and had lunch there and then out for a currie with friends in the evening. Hopefully we will get into the garden today. We are true Brits and will not let the rain beat us!!!
Enjoy your Easter

People can be so forceful in getting others to eat desserts - I have the same problem! xx

Andi- I'm so pleased to have a kindred spirit here - I was literally held hostage until the dish was completely clear!

Sounds like a great day in the end. Just been on a charity shop trawl round a nearby town, got a few bits but nothing much to sell on - too flippin expensive ! Cant wait for car boots !
Have a good weekend
