I have a full house this Easter. Both Daughter and Son are at home to celebrate not just Easter, but two big family birthdays, 10 years and one day apart. One of them is tomorrow when we have 14 for lunch here. This is a feat of determination on our part, with scaffolding up around the house and carpets only just re-fitted this morning. Luckily, I have helpers. And they’re not so little any more.
‘Don’t worry, Mum,’ said Daughter on the phone to me as she was boarding the London bound plane at Helsinki airport last night, ‘it’ll be alright; I’m coming home.’
Son on his part has been cooking all day, in preparation for tomorrow. We’ve all mucked in to clear builders’ dust and rubble this afternoon. I even managed half a day in the office followed by a Waitrose shop (=fix).
I hope your Easter will be as wonderful as mine is shaping up to be. I’ll leave you with the seasonal decoration in the one and only Fazer Cafe in Helsinki. All those eggs in the baskets are filled with the most wonderful chocolate truffle mixture. Aren’t they something else?
