Good Friday

We were blessed with glorious weather on Good Friday, so Mark packed us up a lovely picnic and we set off to find somewhere to enjoy it. We had originally planned to head into North Wales, but our car radiator sprang a leak, so we settled on somewhere a little nearer to home. We enjoyed our picnic in the sunshine and the Podlings had a great time running around with their daddy. I was feeling exceptionally pregnant and somewhat fragile that day, so was content to just sit and watch my favourite people.
With it being Good Friday, Mark thought it would be appropriate to stop off and see the Sandbach Crosses on the way home from our picnic. The two huge stone crosses are thought to date from the 9th century and depict scenes from the bible, including the nativity and the Crucifixion. Originally painted as well as carved, they now dominate the market square in Sandbach.


Love this photo!

This carving on one of the crosses depicts the Crucifixion

Mark and and the 3 children are all looking well. Mum seems rather large but understandable at this stage of your pregnancy
A good day out for all.
