So it's Good Friday - I'm alone in the house (my family have gone on a mission up to Christchurch to take care of some quake related biz) and I'm here with my manuscript and some (but no doubt not enough) chocolate. My fault, you see for the second year in a row I forgot to do the Easter shopping sooner rather than later so when I finally made it to the supermarket, it was to find most of the egg range had sold out.
However, I did gather up a few million of those mini-marshmallow things so hopefully when small children return, the bunny will have hidden a few about the house...
And - despite the revisions and deadline I'm under - there's no risk of my scoffing the bunny stash - for my new personal favourite chocolate is New Zealand made Whittaker's Ghana Peppermint - with 72% cocoa. I had some for breakfast this morning as I missed out on the Hot Cross Buns too (they'd completely sold out).
But of course Easter isn't all about eggs and eating now is it?! Well, actually for some it might be, for others it is a time of huge religious significance and reflection, for others it's just really nice to have a few days holiday... This year for me, it's a time to get the book finished.
No matter what Easter means for you, I do hope you have a lovely few days, that you maybe get to spend some quality time with family and/or friends and that if you're traveling you have safe, happy and fun journeys! And if you're alone, like I currently am, then I really hope you have a FABULOUS book to curl up with and enjoy!!!!
with very best wishes,
