Happy WIAW everyone! I hope you are all having a fabulous week.
I have been trying to get back in the work groove after the Easter break. I was working on Bank Holiday Monday so it wasn’t too hard to get back to my thesis yesterday.
On Sunday I woke up super early to get my Orange and Cranberry Hot Cross Buns in the oven so that they were ready for breakfast. Getting up early on a Sunday is always difficult at the best of times but the smell in my house as the buns were baking was incredible and made it so worth it.
So fresh out of the oven breakfast was served topped with blueberry and blackcurrant jam and Pure spread and a mug of chai tea…amazingly good! I also went back for a third one too! And whilst the dough was proving I managed to fit in my work out too of level 1 and 2 from the 30 Day Shred.
Easter was quite a family affair for us as Alfie’s family and mine came over to see the church that we have chosen to get married it. We headed to the Easter service in the morning, met the vicar who will be marrying us and then went to our reception venue so Alfie’s family could go and see it. Everyone loved the beautiful church and the venue, which made us both happy.
I had booked all of us in to a favourite restaurant of ours by the river for Easter lunch at The Saxon Mill.
We all skipped the starters and headed straight to the mains which I was happy about as I was starving. I picked the salmon fillet with roasted butternut squash and a pesto sauce.
This was just gorgeous especially with the serving of fries that I also had on the side.
And of course there is always time for dessert and the apple and berry crumble was popular at our table as all but one ordered one- it was that good!
After that epic lunch we all said our goodbyes and headed home. It was one of those heavy stomach moments after Sunday lunch affairs and after getting up so early I just had to take a nap.
Easter just isn’t Easter without chocolate!
The rest of the say was spent in my pj’s on the sofa watching tv. Since I wasn’t very hungry for dinner I had a snacky moment. I had lots of my dark chocolate selection and lots of fruit which went perfect with a movie. We watched the Lincoln Lawyer with Matthew Macconaughey, which was actually really good.
It really was a lovely Easter Sunday!
Have you got back into the work groove yet after Easter?
