Aside from it essentially being another excuse (like it’s needed) to stuff one’s face, we don’t really celebrate Easter. Only two of our household actually like chocolate with any real enthusiasm and one of THOSE is on a diet anyway! So it’s often non-traditional gifts of pies and crisps. Though I did in fact buy in some baklava instead of pies this year, just for a change.
I spent some time with the kids on Saturday morning, teaching them how too make Florentines (their dad’s favourite, though he’s not much of a sweet tooth). I think they turned out rather well! They’re massive!
I’m selling at a local craft fair next week, so I thought I’d bulk up my existing stock a bit. Couple of scarves and this little chap that I spent my long weekend on. Who doesn’t love a minion?
And I’m writing this just before I have to leave to go see Ready Player One. Gaming Dad has already seen it of course. I’m hoping it lives up to the book, since it’s pretty much a geek classic. So all in all, a pretty productive weekend, nerd-wise.
