The Easter weekend has arrived with unaccustomed glorious weather. The main road through the village, which runs to the beaches at Saunton and Croyde, is already gridlocked with battered old camper vans full of Aussie surfers and the MGBs of the London weekend surfers. The beachside car parks will show the diversity of income and lifestyle of our visitors but, once they are in the water, only the sunbleached hair will distinguish the year round surfers from the City bonus spenders.
I went into the garden early this morning to watch the birds enjoying the sunshine. Unfortunately the sunny weather has brought out all the weeds as well but I won't have time to get at them. My son and daughter and their respective spouses will be arriving soon and meals and Easter church services will be high on the agenda. I've just had a bright idea, though: Andrew and Tanith's school motto was 'Read and Reap', I could adapt that for the weekend to 'Weed and Eat' - an hour of work in the garden in return for mum's home cooking!
Happy Easter to everyone.
