Easter Eggs – what’s your choice?


Once upon a time in our house it used to be that a fluffy bunny toy or a small bucket with a few tiny chocolate eggs was all that was needed to make Easter Sunday top-filled with joy for very small people. Sadly, those very small people taint not so small any more. In fact, they’re teen-sized, and their chocolate-love has grown exponentially.

So our Easter Egg buying has by necessity expanded a little (I miss those toddlers y’know)…

Thankfully, Mr Tesco took this into account, and has added some lovely deals on to ease the pain of buying eggs this year…

We eventually got the Twirl eggs for them, which at 325g gave them a really big egg plus three bars as well. We rarely buy them sweets/chocolate, so any traditional main brand confectionery is a big treat!)


The 6yr old, whose appetite is not so big as she’d like to think it is for the brown stuff will adore this very cute little ‘Me To You’ Tatty Teddy egg – more bear than egg, perfect for her.

Then it’ll just be a basket of small eggs for the egg hunt, and naturally the golden prize of a Lindt bunny each nestling in the flower beds. No egg hunt would be complete without that, would it? And bonus – Lindt 50g bunnies are two for £2 at the mo. gold-bunny-milk-chocolate-50g

You do need to get your skates on though – I know they’ve been in the shops since Christmas, but I guarantee that come the weekend, when you actually *need* to buy one, there’ll be none left.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
