This time last week I was enjoying a break at my caravan in the Lake District . Despite the fact that it was pouring down with rain and blowing a gale, I had a great time. Today, I finally got round to viewing the photos I had taken and was amazed to find that there was hardly a trace of the inclement weather. Everywhere looks wonderful, from the clumps of golden daffodils in the grounds of Sizergh Castle to the picture of my dog, Bess, posing on the decking outside my caravan. Take a look and you will see exactly what I mean.

So does the camera lie? Definitely! This week, of course, the sun has been shining down, probably because I decided to avoid all the holiday traffic and stay at home. Oh, well, these things happen.

A happy Easter to you all. I hope the sun is shining down on you wherever you are.
