Easter was a short, sharp break but a welcome one. Finally got to see Grace Kelly:Style Icon. It's not a massive collection but to see some of key outfits from the 50s through to the 80s was great. There's even the Edith Head dress that Grace wore in the final scene of Rear Window along with bags, shoes and gorgeous sunglasses. The gallery was packed as we shuffled past a parade stunning evening gowns and floaty, sheer dresses.

The rest of the holiday was all family, dog walks on the beach, a bit of crochet and of course, chocolate...
