I hope you all had a lovely Easter weekend. We did, despite the fact that it was really cold (following a 70 degree day on Friday made it worse). How did Claire’s baptism go? Pretty much as I expected: it was way past her bedtime and she was too tired for all the religious shinanigins. The picture says it all.


Poor baby. She started off okay – in fact, she was all smiles when we left the house.


But by the time we got through the Easter Vigil service, which was beautiful, it was a good hour past bedtime. We’re really grateful that our priest has done this for 42 years because a screaming baby didn’t faze him one bit. We were also delighted that our good friends became Claire’s God Parents (and we their baby’s!).


On Sunday we enjoyed a fabulous dinner with lots of friends. It was a most memorable Easter!
