I've had a pretty bleh week - isn't it funny how being bullied can instantly take you back to high school? - and I have turned to Easter treats for solace.
For various reasons I haven't been able to eat Easter treats for the past few years, and oh! I am so excited! The very clever people at Bakers Delight had the [frankly genius] idea to add chocolate chips to hot cross buns - and really, is there anything that isn't made even better by chocolate chips? I am delighted.
I'm no longer able to eat my much-loved Cadbury Creme Eggs, but I have replaced them with a whole bunch of wee Lindt eggs, and I'm finding the subsitution acceptable. I used to work on the line at a Cadburys factory - where you ate all the chocolate you wanted and let me tell you they took a beating on that policy when I worked there - and my love for the Creme Egg will never be surpassed.
I posted off a birthday parcel to my wee niece today and that made me think about my birthday present for my big niece. I made her a necklace, and while I'm sure she opened the present hoping for *things 16 y/o girls like* and ended up with something made by her Mad Drunken Auntie she was gracious enough to have her photo taken wearing the necklace. So I could see that she had received it and worn it at least once, and really that's all I ask.
Although yeah, I do hope she liked it; it was made with much love.
