Easter weekend

Seeing as our youngest contracted both conjunctivitis and chicken pox the week before Easter, we were largely confined to home and/or outdoor places where we were certain we wouldn't come into close contact with others. I'm quite proud that we have survived the last four days (both today and Friday were bank holidays in the UK) without all going slightly mad.

We spent Friday touring rural Herefordshire, which manages to be even more rural than our corner of Worcestershire. On our travels, we spotted a neat sign saying "Goose Eggs" outside a farm house, so we pulled off the road. Humuhumu and the bloke went to investigate and came back with four goose eggs, six duck eggs and a dozen chicken eggs.

The bloke blew the middles out of the goose and duck eggs (omelettes for days). We hardboiled half of the chicken eggs and dyed those with food colouring and edible glitter.

We spent Saturday, Sunday and today:

- going on walks
- gardening
- napping
- going on Easter egg hunts
- Lego
- feigning gratitude for Telstar's "presents" (it's definitely spring)
- trying to get Keiki to walk (chocolate was a great motivator)
