The Easter Egg Hunt has now become a tradition, and even though it was raining we still had one... (With a bit of persuading Mum!) This year was quite a hard one for Mum to hide the eggs but even so I managed to steal the victory from Sam for the first time and the result was 15 - 14! :D

Sam was in Burnham's Golf Club team for the Youth Shield Away Match and wanted us to take him but not stay, so we went to Freeport,

and Witham and then back to the Gosfield Golf Club. Being early, Dad had a nap and Mum and I played games of 'Word Mole' on our Blackberry's, so I took this photo whilst we were waiting...

Yes, not a great day! Having had my operation postponed since January 18th 2012  - Today was the day I was dreading. Not a very attractive photo of me, I know! But this operation wasn't as painful as previous operations but I was in surgery for 3 hours, and like I predicted... I had a nose bleed!

A long day today - having to get to school for 7 o'clock in the morning so that we could leave for Cambridge. It was a day spent with Mum and other students from my Year and we visited the Anglia Ruskin University and then went shopping in a shopping centre (of course I sat with Mum and the teachers having a Hazelnut Hot Chocolate in Costa Coffee) and then to Market Square. Whilst in Market Square Mum and I went to look at Kings Collage (a beautiful place from the outside) and then of course to find postcards! 

A great day out! <3

Since yesterday we've been staying with our friends down in Wiltshire, and we decided to go out and visit the Designer Village and so this is a photo of the drinks we got from out favourite coffee shop! Of course I had to have a Hazelnut Hot Chocolate! 

Not to mention whilst we were going around the Designer Village Sam and I had to get a HUGE bag of Cadbury's Mishapes each!
