Sahra and her husband were sitting on a bench, enjoying the fresh air and watching boat races on the nearby river. “Look mummy, see what I found” said her 2-year old daughter, walking towards with a rotten Easter Egg.
***A week ago***
They’ll never find it here thought Denise as she hid another Easter egg. It was the day before Easter and she wanted some time alone to rest the next afternoon. The solution—give the kids something to do and what better way than to keep them busy by making them search Easter eggs that the ‘Easter Bunny’ had ‘dropped’ on his way? She thought her plan was perfect.
However, it was far from so. The next night, muddy footprints filled the entire living room and all sorts of things ranging from the Easter eggs to egg-shaped stones to stuff she could not seem to recognise were spread across the house. (She didn’t even get all the eggs back).
Today is E for Easter.
