    Default Easter Is Coming...............

    OK, Easter is only a few weeks off and I would like to organise an Easter shin dig.

    We can't use The Gardeners Rest as Nicos has read the small print on the contract and found out that we would be breaking contractural obligations in regards to Chr.............as if it is made available for a bunny showdown.

    So, who is going to be the Easter Bunny?

    Who is going to enter the 'Paint An Egg' Competition.

    Does Simnel Cake taste any good?

    And, will VC eat all the chocolate eggs again this year?

    We could put up a marquee in our field similar, but much larger of course, to the Great British Bake Off tent?
    Peeps could come with their tents to sleep in so long as they are painted festive Easter colours or adorned with bunting.

    We could create firepits for roasting the festive bunnies....
    Oh!....they are meant for cuddling are they?

    Anyone got fairy lights?....

    What ya think?...

    I think that you are a mine of good ideas Nicos except I'm not so sure about the roasting bunnies idea.

    How about hot X buns instead?

    Make a cake, me - I am genetically incapable.

    However, I can think of a few Grapes who would do us proud if we had an Easter cake competition.

    OK - how about an Easter Bonnet parade?
    I nominate Balders, Cad, BM, LD, HappyH and VC to go off and do their thing with huge amounts of crepe paper.

    Hey - Miss MT can make an Easter bonnet too! Just need some straw, eggs from our hens, a pair of pink bunny ears that were free leftovers from some past daft occasion, and some twine to tie it on my head. If it's too heavy and I fall over, the yolks on me!
