Oh I do love Easter…. The chocolate, the eggs and the bank holiday – come on what is not to love!

Eggcellent Painted Eggs from Hodge Podge Days
“When I got an email from school reminding me that entries for the Easter Egg Painting competition needed to be handed in this week, I went into a slight panic.
