Egg Race



I never thought it would be so labour intensive to colour Easter eggs. It took me the best part of two hours to colour about eight eggs. Two broke and I had to eat them - probably resulting in constipation. My hands are stained blue and the eggs are barely coloured. It cost €3.50 for two tiny packets of working-not-very-well dye. Next year, I shall go to my butcher's round the corner and buy them ready dyed, en masse.
Ah, the charm of the home-made, how quickly it fades...

    I love the writing. Humorous and honest. I like the photos, especially the eggs in the dishes with the tiny bit of staining on the side. Lovely.
