Even the Best Plans...

The past week or so has been absolutely amazing weather wise. With gloriously sunny days, we were all basking in the warmth of early Spring and shrugging out of our Winter jackets ready to say farewell to the cold, dark days. I have been dishing up lovely, light salads for lunch and dinner, happy to no longer feel the need to fill our tummies with heavy, stodgy food. I can therefore be forgiven for getting carried away by planning a lovely picnic in the park to celebrate our seventh wedding anniversary this past weekend.

I had visions of us finding a sunny spot in our favourite park, spreading out one of my mum's colourful quilts, sitting down, sipping glasses of chilled champagne and snacking away on loads of crisp salads, deeply filled sandwiches and all sorts of other delectable treats. I had even made us a gorgeous dessert of milk chocolate mousse, topped with Irish cream "cheese cake". Unfortunately, all of my plans were squashed when we awoke yesterday morning to a grey drizzle, freezing winds and even the odd snowflake drifting by. That's England for you...

We still managed to make the most of our day together, someone else made lunch for us (and washed the dishes too!) and we did get to enjoy our champagne and dessert. After all, when you still want to spend the day in each other's company when you have been married for seven years, it really doesn't matter where you go or what you do:)
