Our Staycation at Blue-Ginger Gallery : Part 3 of 3


This post is a continuous story from Our Staycation at Blue-Ginger Gallery : Part 2 of 3. If you’d like to have a little read please feel free to do so as Part 3 will make much more sense to you.

Day 3 – It’s Easter Sunday & it’s my Birthday!

Yep, the big 40 has hit me right in the head by two monsters of mine! OMG! Where has the time gone? I feel sad but happy at the same time. I don’t know why. I think I need to go into deeper than this on another post, but at that particular morning E&E just can’t stay away from my bed. Help! lol!


Today, as my birthday’s gift, Sue bought us a family ticket to an Easter Event at Eastnor Castle (which I will write about in separate post), but before we set off she’d gotten the kids and her neighbour’s next door kids to come round and did a little Easter Eggs Hunting of our own.

We started off looking for the eggs in Sue’s garden. It was so exciting for both us and the kids! Evelyn’s expression when finding the eggs is just priceless! It was so adorable!

Then we moved on into her neighbour’s garden. Unfortunately, Evelyn tripped over and I thought she was going to cry! But instead, she was worried stiff the eggs being broken! “Oh! My Eggs!” She cried! Bless her.

E&E also found some small packs of Smarties hiding in the neighbour’s garden too! They said that these Smarties packs were left behind from their little boy’s birthday treasure hunt a couple of weeks ago. Trust my E&E to find them! Haha

At the end, we gathered up all the eggs and split them up equally. There were a lot of eggs! Then unbeknown to me, Sue asked the children to sing me the renowned “Happy Birthday!” song! It was so cute and very sweet of them, and at the same time I felt a little embarrassed as I was being reminded that I am officially OLD!! Nope, sorry I don’t have a footage of this. 😉

After Eastnor Castle event, we came back and I cooked a stir-fried rice with left over chicken from yesterday for everybody. And yes! It was a hit again! I’m so pleased that I have the chance to cook and shown off some of my cooking skills to Sue and Kenji. Even my O.H. thinks it was delicious too – no, he doesn’t always agrees with my cooking, but I’ll take it as a compliment anyway.

We sadly had to say our Good-bye to Blue-Ginger family the next day. The kids loves every moment at this home. We missed this place and E&E are already asking me when are we going back again. I don’t know yet…

I guess you’ll have to stay tuned!

    That sounds like a wonderful way to spend your birthday! I turned 40 as well this year and honestly I rarely believe it.. I keep trying to tell myself it’s just a number but I do feel kind of depressed when I realize… 40! How did that happen already?

    • 22/01/2018 / 11:32 pm

      Oh! Happy Pre-Birthday! I know – it is really quite puzzling, I don’t get it at all. Where has the time gone? One minute I was 21 and now 40! Really!? xx

    This looks so cute and fun. Hope you had a great birthday! #explorerkids

      Thanks Annette. & Thank you for welcome me into your club. 🙂 xx

    Su – I’m sure you still look 21… What a great adventure. I love the egg collecting. Sarah #ExplorerKids

      Haha I wish Sarah. I wish. I wish I was that young to go egg collecting myself! lol! x

    Blue-Ginger really does look like a tremendous place to stay, it’s so lovely that the kids got the chance to get to know Sue and people from your childhood. Easter Egg hunts are always so much fun, we organise a farm wide one every year on Easter Sunday and it’s always a big hit! It’s so sweet that when Evelyn fell over she was more worried about her eggs than she was anything else.

    Thanks for sharing with me on #CountryKids.

      Yes, I like that the kids got to know Sue too. It feels very warm and at home. Evelyn was so funny! lol! I kept saying I should go to visit you soon, but I still don’t know when yet! I think we need to wait until the weather is a little warmer. 🙂 x

    Your friends got married at Eastnor Castle a couple of years back. It’s a lovely area and we’d like to escape this Easter and do some egg hunting x #CountryKids x

    • 23/01/2018 / 12:22 am

      Oh Wow! How grand! A wedding at Eastnor Castle – wish I have a wedding like that! <3 🙂 xx

    That really does sound like a great way to celebrate your birthday, looks like a great place to go!

      Thank you so much Deb. I didn’t mean to celebrate, it just happened. 🙂 x

    Oh Monkey loves an Easter egg Hunt, in fact he asks for one each year. What a great way to celebrate your birthday x #CountryKids

      Aww… sweet Monkey. I don’t think we can go pass an Easter without an Easter Hunt anymore. lol! xx
