Easter break

Late last night, a friend suddenly asked: "What are you doing with Easter?" "Oh nothing much," I replied, "Perhaps just a bit of spring cleaning..."

Scrap that: I'm having dinner and a sleepover up at the house*; and the next day, if the weather holds, we're going for a spin around the countryside, a nice leisurely lunch at an auberge, and the opening of her brother's artist wife's exhibition in the afternoon.




* = a manor house, it's been in the family for generations. It's set in a huge, but lovely landscaped garden...really, it's more of a private park with all kinds of interesting vistas and statuary.
