Eastertide

by Angeliska on April 23, 2011

Eastertime is almost here! I can almost taste the candyfloss melting on my tongue, and those speckled
chocolate robin’s eggs. I’m busy getting everything ready for our annual Easter Egg Hunt and Garden
Party on Sunday, and remembering what a blast we had last year. It was an insane cavalcade of
pastel frocks, sugared-up children, and eggs: devilled, dyed, candy-stuffed and confetti-filled.

He’s too little for Easter egg hunts this year, I reckon – but next year, maybe!

My grampa was there, in fine fettle. I wish he could be here this year.
The headphones and radio-looking-thing are actually his preferred choice
of hearing-aid. He likes it, and it works – but people always think he’s listening
to music. I had to learn the Serbian word for hearing-aid when I was there,
because everyone was curious about them. The word is: slušni aparat

love, Love, LOVE. Someone (I’ll give you 3 guesses) is going to come down with a case of unmentionable gastric distress Sunday, so that there will be no work, but lots of play! Bunnyplay!
