Easter Egg Fun - don't you just love it. Growing up I heard tales of my father's Easters out the country. He claimed that everyone hand-boiled eggs, and on Easter Sunday morning the kids would try to scoff as many of these as they could. I can just imagine the look on my two if I tried to replace chocolate with real egg!
But it is a great fun time. Children are off school and the weather is improving. It is time to get outdoors and enjoy the spring. In recent years I have tended to fall into a pattern, which I hope to repeat this time. It begins on Good Friday with a day in the Lifetime Lab in Cork. Easter Sunday will be sent in the bronze age Craganowen in County Clare, while on Monday I will be in Bunratty Castle all day.
This year will have one important difference, though. I will be breaking in a new act for the summer festivals. It is a medieval magic act, and so I will be in full kilt for the performances. Magician in a skirt - you have to come along to one of the venues to catch this one!
Have a great Easter everyone.
