A delighfully busy, mixed basket of Easter festivities today.
Jumps' sisters and brothers are staying for a few days with their families, and today was a flurry of arrivals and catching up over cups of tea, hot cross buns, banana blueberry cake and impossible pie. In the afternoon part of the party went kayaking on the big river, while others stayed at home to welcome a host of visitors.
In the evening my parents joined us for a barbecue, while the children rode bikes inexhaustibly up and down and around the verandah, jumped on the trampoline, and scoffed sausages.
Tomorrow my nephews will arrive, along with still more visitors, in anticipation of the Easter egg hunt and a family luncheon at the Manor.
