Elastic waistbands.

Back to work for us here in the US while all of you across the Atlantic enjoy an extra day of vacation!  I hope you all had an amazing Easter.  I’ve mentioned before how much I adore the Easter celebration.  For me it signals the beginning of Spring – green shoots everywhere, great food, and the anticipation of great things to come over the summer.

We hosted friends on Saturday for our Easter dinner.  I roasted a 5lb leg of lamb which was completely demolished.  I love watching the kids enjoy a good roast!

Poppy and Hugh made a fabulous trifle too for dessert.

There was of course the drunk dancing (and photography)…we were grooving the best of Daft Punk at this point I think! (p.s. the dress is the ASOS t-shirt dress currently on sale – PERFECT for over indulging – no belt loosening required).

Always a bad sign when the Port arrives on the table…

Yesterday we started all over again with a fabulous party and egg hunt at our friends’ house across the street.  Glorious sunshine accompanied by great conversation, a huge ham and cold prosecco.  I LOVE Easter.

So the elasticated waists have been needed for the large indulgences all this weekend…but also this that happened Thursday…

Navel piercing

The bruising has vanished now and as soon as it is heeled I’ll add a little more bling.  42 year old mom gets navel pierced – they will be coming to take me away soon:)

And here are the said elastic waisted wonders!
