It must be a clear-cut sign that you are fast maturing when you get more excited about decorating Easter Eggs than you do about eating them. Having spent yesterday checking out all the gorgeous treats in The Food Company (again, another obvious sign of maturity, spending a Sunday awake before 12, and scamming on the Cheese counter) it did dawn on me how soon Easter actually is. This realisation came in the form of a dozen or so over-decorated, over-sized and frankly overly fantastic Easter Eggs that were clearly only on display to make small children faint. And boy, was I mentally noting down decorating techniques in preparation for my own traditional ‘egg-athon’ in which myself and family members take it in turns to out do each other with our amazing egg decorating creative skills (I will be sure to blog nearer the time with my finished article).
Meanwhile I have also been quite intrigued by ‘The Big Egg Hunt’ being held in our dear capital this year, to mark both Easter and the Queen’s jubilee. If you have noticed very large, very out-of-place decorative Eggs dotted around London recently, well this will be why. Check out The Big Egg Hunt website for full information, but to be in with a chance of winning a gem-encrusted real life Faberge egg worth £100,000, all you have to do is scout of these hidden eggs in london and text the Key word found on it to get a step closer to the Faberge. Cool, huh? You can even download the zone maps to help for hunt from the official website. But FYI, there are LOADS around Covent Garden.
