We did this last year and had a great time: http://madonnamusing.blogspot.com/2013/06/beatles-cover-band-outdoor-concert.html. So, we surprised nanna and granddad with a picnic dinner in the park to see the same band, Marmalade Skies, again this year.

Finished another book - this one quickly because it was an easy read. Not anything close to my usual genre but still thoroughly enjoyable. This little girl (the main character Sylvia) will remain in my thoughts for weeks I'm sure.

I only got this one picture from Easter Sunday - enjoying eggs of course:
And then the girls got to make these traditional English Easter nests with nanna. Actually I don't know if they're traditional English or traditional Parker. My sisters and I made these for years with my mum. I never imagined my daughters doing it with her now! She said there was more chocolate all over her kitchen than ended up in the treats :)

Just finished this book and I am so happy to have been introduced to this outstanding writer. Unknowingly, I started with his third book. The world has long been singing his praises over 'The Kite Runner' and 'A Thousand Splendid Suns' but I must've been under a rock for all that. I'm not sure how I heard about 'And The Mountains Echoed' but I can't say enough about it - GREAT read! And now I will rush straight to read his other two.
