Easter egg hunt

I hope you’ve all had a lovely Easter. We’ve had a long weekend of perfect, golden Autumn weather.

We don’t have any kids in our household, so my partner and I were surprised (and delighted!) when we got up on Sunday morning to discover that Mum had done an Easter egg hunt for us! You’re never too old….

Mum had had great fun colour-matching the eggs so they were extra hard to spot! It wasn’t about big eggs or lots of chocolate, just about the thrill of the hunt!

As soon as we started looking for eggs I got all the same feelings that I used to get each Easter as a child when my brother would set off at a run and I’d get all panicky that I was missing out on finding all the eggs. That was until I realised that he was going so fast he was missing half of them! Our two different approaches turned out to be perfectly complementary.

Mum found all sorts of hidings places included cracks in an old saw horse, and an empty nest that she’d found in the garden the day before.

At the end of the hunt we had a lovely basket of little metallic eggs. Our husky, Silver, wished that dogs were allowed chocolate eggs too…
