Happy Easter!

It's sometimes sad to be away from home during the holidays, so for Easter Sunday my friends and I are making the biggest and best dinner of our entire year abroad.

(The French love Easter. Baby animal decorations everywhere, they even set up a petting zoo in the shopping centre!)

As our cooking facilities in the student residences aren't great, it's hard to have nice dinners very often. There are four hot plates between the 52 people on my floor, and no oven, no microwave, no toaster, nothing. I love to cook, so I bought a mini-oven for my room, and for the first time, the girls and I are having a Sunday roast together.

Since each person is in charge of one part of the meal, we'll have loads of food without any one person doing too much work. This should give me plenty of time to chill out with my girls and my knitting. And the sun is out for the first time in a week. I can't think of a nicer way to spend my Easter Sunday.
