Well, Easter time is upon us. The kids have broken up from school and are already clammering for chocolate, the smell of hot cross buns emanates from every supermarket, the aisles are full of eggs, bunny pinatas and cards and legs of lamb fill the shelves. There’s no doubt about it, Easter is here.
Actually, we really love Easter. It’s another chance to get together with the family, but generally carries with it far less stress and strain than Christmas, despite it involving a sizeable roast with all the trimmings, almost as many presents, planning for Easter Eggs Hunts, frantic house tidying and bed-making, baking (and by baking, we mean purchasing, then roughing up a bit and passing off as our own, homemade) cakes and finally, the inevitable request for fancy dress outfits from the kids.
This year, the normal bunny and chicken outfits have been replaced by something completely different and not-at-all Eastery. We have had to supplement all the usual chocolate-focused fun with something for the golf-addicts in our family. This year, Easter coincides with The Masters which, as any avid golfer will tell you, is THE competition to see. So, we have decided to celebrate both occasions, combining Easter Bunny outfits with Plus 4s and Pringle jumpers.
Our Easter weekend now comprises of:
- Best fancy dress outfit awards (golfing and Easter outfits only)
- Chipping competition
- Wii Golf Tournament
- Easter Egg Hunt
- Gator Golf for the kids
- Easter Sunday lunch (leg of lamb on the BBQ, no matter what the weather brings)
- Easter Pinata demolition
- Best Easter Cake decoration (children only – kitchen demolition guaranteed)
- 19th Hole (comprising Pimms tent, Seafood Bar, feature cocktail ‘Hole-In-One’ and other refreshments)
- Putting competition
So, a slightly unusual Easter but the fundamentals are still there and dressing up will feature highly in our entertainment for the weekend. Now, better go and hunt down my Titleist visor!
