You’ll be too busy eating chocolate to have much time for blogging, so a quick one today.

First up a photo of Ruadhri’s Easter Garden. He was in a rotten mood when he started it on Saturday afternoon, but he ended up enjoying the project, despite himself!

The main reason for his grumpiness was that the great bunch of guests who’d been in our gite for a week had gone home that morning. Ruadhri had made friends with the three boys, Alfie, Charlie and Freddie, and they’d been playing together most of the week. He really misses them, especially Alfie. They got on like a house on fire (99% of the time!).

Another contributing factor to the bad mood was that Rors reckoned his dad had cheated during a match of Beybladez. Unlikely, since neither Chris nor I have been able to fathom out the rules, at least as told to us by our youngest son!

Alfie and Ruadhri had a brilliant time together
