Lining up

When we were kids we lined up our Easter eggs on the window sill in order of size. By the time you took the egg out of its enormous packaging it was half the bulkiness. Separating the chocolate halves without breaking them was a skill. And finding the wee packet of smarties, or other treats inside, always such a thrill.

Ours were hidden in different parts of the house and we had to hunt for them, it was a similar thrill to find them.

I was a nibbler...used to nibble all round the edge of each egg-half and work my way towards the middle :O)

Such care and lovely deliberation--your young self.
