  1. Today was a surprisingly normal Easter Sunday for the Smiths at the Old Commercial. We had a lovely meal together as a family and watched some films and had a few drinks together. There was also chocolate involved; naturally. I would, however, have much preferred to have had the opportunity to see more of my friends and loved ones beyond the village, but we made the best of it today.

  2. Nikki at the village shop had the lovely idea of ringing the church bells at 10:30 which should have been the time of the Easter Family Service – shame I couldn’t hear them from where I live, but it was lovely to know that this was happening.
    Decided to use my daily exercise today to go exploring local public footpaths. I have been meaning to find a good walking shortcut from Lindridge to the village centre ever since we moved here but have to admit that I’ve been incredibly lazy. Well, not completely, as I have walked the roadway on a number of occasions but have to admit that I usually take the car. So, armed with an OS map I found one not-so-good path, but the second route I tried came up trumps and should knock about 15 minutes off the walk. A productive and enjoyable afternoon!
