Happy Easter and Wadi Again







It's been a strange Easter Day here. I am used to tradional ones and this one has been any but.... We went to the children's Easter vigil service last night as dd left this morning for her two day residental away from us :-(

However it wan't the usual church thing......we were not allowed to park near the churches and we were searched going in.......also there was a very nice dish dashed man who stood quietly at the back of the church and sereval about the building. There is a point when one knows in one's bones that all was not right and here I was bringing someone elses child into danger. I am pleased to say that all was fine and I thanked the police at the gate who were quietly doing a great job.


So that left today feeling very empty. DD left at 7:30 and we took the boys to the wadi where we took sil. So they swam, climbed a mountain and ate turkey legs with humous. I must confess I was missing DD and roast lamb but it was a brilliant day.


BTW the Easter Bunny was very obliging and came on Saturday morning for us.

Don't beat yourself up about Easter, Liz. What with time zones being different all over the world, people could be celebrating it a couple of days apart anyway. You kept it in your heart and you did all the bits as a family that you wanted to do. That's what counts.
