Easter Weekend.

Easter weekend I went down to see two of my sons and grandchildren in the London area.
The weather was BEAUTIFUL. It was nice spending some time with them for I have not seen them all for quite a while.
Two of my sons

We did shopping.
We did bingo, no we never won.
We did a car boot sale. Yes I managed to spend some money there.
We did a garden centre. Here we saw lots of animals.

The kids loved it. We also had a ride on a steam train.

All in all I had a lovely time. It made a nice change.
I then travelled back to Crete on the day of the royal wedding.
Since then the weather here has improved so we did a bit of gardening.
With there been so much rain this winter and early spring the weeds have been running riot on our small plot. Some of the grasses have been as tall as me.
We are winning I think. Yes we will soon have it whipped into shape. Got some seed potatoes and onion sets to put in.

What are you all doing now?

What a fun outing you had with the family!

What am I doing right now? I am sitting on board Freedom of the Seas, tied up in Port Canaveral, Florida, where my Verizon Air Card works so I can be on the Internet reading blogs and writing comments. :))) At 5 PM we will be at sea again.

Happy Mothers Day!
