After a couple of extremely hectic workdays this week (Thursday and Saturday especially), when everyone was running around as if the end is nigh, it's nice to finally have my peaceful lie-in-bed-and- read day.
The Easter Bunny visited our house and the usual hunt for hidden eggs in our lounge room took place. This year, only J and Z were here to participate. You would think that at 19 and 16 years old they would no longer be interested in this sort of activity but that's not the case. A couple of years ago, the Easter Bunny made this assumption and didn't hide the eggs. I woke up that morning to find that J had risen early and hidden them all.
Anyway, there is plenty of chocolate in our house today. I don't really understand this current trend of buying Easter "presents" as I witnessed so many people doing this week. Chocolate eggs will do just fine here.
A bit of a strange Easter with less people around than usual. C and E both have to work and no extended family gathering this year for some unknown reason.
I will still have to move myself soon to organise dinner - roast lamb with all the trimmings and apple pie for dessert. I have already made the traditional Easter Caramel Slice which has been sampled by most of the family.
Mini eggs prior to de-foiling for the slice.
Finished slice. So very rich and chocolatey. Definitely a once-a-year treat only!
