Sadly, Easter 2020 is a bit different, due to the horrible pandemic.

I preferred to buy chocolate rabbits, mini-eggs and blocks of hazelnut chocolate from Blackheath’s Friendly Grocer.
Yesterday my husband and I ordered a take-away lasagne dinner and (as a special treat) cocktails from the Blackheath Bar and Bistro. We don’t own cocktail glasses and my presentation wasn’t perfect, but they were delicious. Rob’s was Rhodo Margarita and mine was Self-isolation Sangria. Let’s hope it won’t be long before we can again enjoy drinks in-house, and listen to live music.

One thing we can all enjoy is Mother Nature in our beautiful surroundings.
STAY SAFE DEAR PEOPLE
