Not an Easter egg to be had by 5.30pm

NOT an Easter egg to be had in Dublin. I'm such an awful Mummy.

I didn't get any during the week because of a 'bedroom' incident, well it is not an incident - more a saga, it hasn't been done since the 17 days post, so in a week of ArrrghhHHHHHHH the last thing I have been inclined to do was get eggs and now I have been left with the proverbial all over my face.

More on the room in a day or two, it is finally done and I am preparing to go in bleach in hand on Monday after a suitable respite to finish it off completely.

Back though to the eggs saga my local Tesco ran out much earlier today, about lunchtime apparently, some one came in and bought 200, can you believe that?

I feel for the Young Wan, she is at that age where people do not think of her as the child she still it, whilst being the young woman too, but she is 14 now and allegedly not into eggs anymore. So because I didn't manage to get her one, she probably won't get one now.

And I remember when I no longer got one of my grandparents' Quality Street eggs which were as much an annual event as selection boxes at Christmas.

So the bottom line is that I have no eggs, but I have a kinder surprise, my kinder will not be surprised. But I also have chocolate brownie cheese cake and a large fruit and nut bar. And I plan to paint eggs in the morning, I am hoping to paint a goth one just to wind up the Young Wan.

Heh, no way, 200 eggs, that's madness!! No wonder Ireland has an obesity problem! I on the other hand have not had an egg at easter in years, not being a huge chocolate fan is part of it!

Man...200 eggs, I'm in shock!

"I didn't get any during the week because of a 'bedroom' incident..."

You know, taken out of context, that could mean something completely different...oh, never mind.

Anyway, I just dropped by to say sorry about the Easter Bunny thing.

Come to think of it, taken out of context...

LOL at Laughman!

Daragh: I know I couldnt believe it either.

It's true. I bought 200 eggs, 5 each for each of my nieces and nephews. I got them 5 each because I heard that their parents had decided not to give any of them an egg this year. The parents are into "real" chocolate and can't stand all that sweet stuff, so decided to introduce their children to proper treats. They all got a piece of organic carrot cake...
I was incensed and opportunistic. I thought this would be my chance to get in with the kids. So I splurged some of my SSIA on them, knowing that they'd remember it all their lives.
I never crossed my mind that some other kids would be left short. Sorry.

I hunted around Tesco branches in East Belfast and Holywood - they only had Smartie Eggs left. And it was nearly impossible to buy wrapped mini-eggs. Someone must have under-ordered this year.
