Easter is a time for spring lambs (such as ours bought in Dublin, above) and fun days out. Ours in 2010 involved a reunion in London and a trip to Liverpool. Click HERE to see photos from past Easters.

A reunion of pupils I taught in the 1990s. We met at Jamie Oliver's Fifteen in London and had a wonderful day together.

John Lennon's glasses. We stayed at Brian Epstein's grandparents' house, now a B&B.

We had gargantuan margaritas in Liverpool. The next day, we went to see Antony Gormley's Another Place.

There are 100 life sized cast-iron sculptures that make up Gormley's Another Place, on Crosby beach, near Liverpool.

We visited the childhood homes of both John Lennon and Paul McCartney. It was magical standing in John's bedroom.

I played part of Eleanor Rigby in Paul's sitting room. The guide definitely looked like a family member.

A scarecrow dog at our fifth National Trust visit in two days. I made a birthday cake the day we returned. For more cakes, click HERE.
