The years go by and everything changes slowly so you don’t really notice when it all happened.  I read a FaceBook post on Good Friday asking if you have had fish today and it made me remember Easter for me as a child.  On the Friday all shops would be shut but we would go down into Strood, Kent to the road where the fish van was where Nan and Grandad and myself, not that I knew anything about fish would buy it all fresh and we would have it for dinner that evening.  I remember eating the yellow fish but I loved the prawns and cockles we had during the day.  Easter Sunday we would always have lamb and roast with all the family and I would get eggs but not as many as the kids get now.  Nan would hide some and Grandad used to write clues or tell me if I was getting hot or cold as I got nearer to them.  Then the Monday we would go out for a drive and go for lunch, they would both have their half a larger and lime and I always had lemonade.  Shops would all be shut so their was no shopping but we got fresh bread from the bakers van, I loved that.  How things change, this Easter I have spent indoors alone since Friday afternoon, apart from going to Follies yesterday and getting my bargains.   


The brass bucket I thought would look good in the garden with bulbs for next year and summer pansies maybe or Freesias as I really like them.  The pink plate was a girly buy as its pink and pretty, not even sure what I am going to do with it yet!   


Then you have this little tea cup and saucer/plate, it is exquisite and I absolutely love it.  Very delicate and pretty, so I was very pleased with my three bargains that I got for £8 

I enjoyed going to Follies and writing the post on my blog.  I have had many comments, messages, emails about it and all good reviews so I was very happy.  The new website is beggining to get some traffic, I just hope it builds up.  I wrote a poem while I was having my coffee yesterday so I will put that on there tonight for you all to go and have a read. 

Did you all have a good Easter?  The positive thing about tommorow is that it’s Tuesday so a nice short week and it will be the weekend again.  x

    I love remembering but what is best is when something triggers a memory you had forgotten, it’s like experiencing it all over again.
    The sun is shining on us today Andro, enjoy xxxxx

    Spending time alone to reminisce is
    not wasted time Karen, in fact the richness
    of memories have erupted into this lovely
    posting, memories of yesteryear that still
    hold a great meaning for you, and that is
    really nice I think πŸ™‚

    Have a happy Tuesday Karen πŸ™‚

    Thank you so much, yes the smell of the yellow was very strong I seem to remember now that man used to poach it in milk. I have not had it for years. One of my girls liked it when small so we used to have it but her sister and brother used to moan about the smell lol xxx

    Your little dish looks like a piece of carnival ware from years ago. It’s very pretty.
    Today started with fog and mist here but this afternoon the sun broke through, it’s a shame you’ve been in.
    I have a very strong allergy to fish /shellfish but I remember going with my mother or grandfather to buy it and the smell of the yellow fish used to drive me mad, I really wanted some. Finnon Haddock it was then, just smoked haddock now. It’s funny the memories that come back.
    I wish you much luck with followers for the new website, I’ll keep tweeting it for you.
