Spring has officially sprung, although I am sure we will experience some cooler weather again and of course the inevitable April showers will soon be upon us. But the fact that the trees have green leaf buds, the grass is lush having been watered by the recent downpours and the clumps of daffodils have bright yellow heads reminds us all that Easter is just around the corner – and with it the promise of warmer, sunnier days. Of course the shops are already stocked full of Easter treats, and I am staunchly ignoring my children’s pleas to purchase them now – apparently because they deserve a reward for whatever reason they think may sway my judgement!
I often talk about my family in posts as I love to share the travel experiences we have, hopefully inspiring other families to start their own travel memory bank. My favourite time of year is Easter. For the last 14 years we have spent the bank holiday weekend away in the UK, either just the four of us, or with friends and their children. A popular destination is the Lake district, and it’s not just a favourite of mine – it is a renowned UK destination worldwide, which isn’t surprising considering it boasts such stunning natural beauty.
