worshipping at the alter of chocolate

We like Easter weekends at least as much as most un-religious people in New Zealand i.e. we might end up going to hell for non-believing, but we sure do enjoy having a 4-day weekend, whatever the reason.

TLM went across the road to play with her new best friend this morning, and came back two hours later with a massive chocolate egg gift set. I'm sure she'll be okay to share it, but if she isn't then I suppose we can always hide it at the back of the fridge and dole it out in small pieces. As if that weren't enough, she's going back there this afternoon for the Easter egg hunt. I expect that it won't be a finders-keepers kind of thing, more of a find-and-deposit-into-the-communal-container deal.

My mum has been trying to get us all to go visit Dad's grave this weekend, but synchronising two households' worth of weekend intentions was all too much - they've gone without me. That's just as well; I have finally caught one of TLM's continuous colds and the last thing I want is to wander the chilly hills of a suburban cemetary, pockets stuffed with tissues and head stuffed with snot.

good lord are you sick AGAIN?

We participated in an easter egg hunt this avo (well, as in we did the hiding) and the eggs were deposited into a communal thingo then doled out (amongst the children, but Ray cleverly hid one on the fence which then fell over into our house...). Apparently something to do with at Tai Kwan Doe there were only about 40 eggs and 60 children so some missed out...

Yes dammit, I'm sick again. Just wait till you have kids too - they'll be sick all winter and you'll get almost every virus they do.

TLM came home with, like, a dozen chocolate eggs after yesterdays egg hunt. I'm training her to give them away as presents.
