Fishink in Waterfall. Easter Parties.

April 10, 2012

A friend of mine turned 40 recently and he celebrated by hiring a party house and inviting a large group of his friends to join him. We were a collection of about 45 adults and 15 children. The fab house looked like this.

It was a wonderful three and a half days. There was a whole range of things to do which included Samba drumming, Ceilidh dancing, Lindy Hop practises, discos, Twister and Table-Tennis, catching up, and lots of eating and drinking.  Being in the middle of some lovely scenery we also went for a long walk in the area.

Even though it was only a week ago that I was sunbathing in shorts and T-shirt, this weekend we we’re camping out in a field that had snow in it ! Brrrr what a change !

Ilam Church is in the grounds of Ilam Hall a National Trust property that has become a youth hostel. It also boasted some fine old Saxon crosses.

A superb font and some beautiful stained glass windows inside too.

As you can see we had quite a day. We were greeted by these rather excited black lambs, even saw one being born. There were signs, showing very blobby walkers, and later Easter egg painting and Easter egg hunting and a snap of  ‘Rocket’ the poor party dog who was worn out from too many late nights.

Thanks to everyone for such a fab Easter weekend and especially for all the yummy cakes !

Thanks to photographer Jonathan Lee for capturing this rare sighting of the Easter Donkey.

Happy 40th Steve !
