Darrell and I have never been too sure about Easter protocol, so this year after several robust late night debates over cups of tea and a couple of packets of Hob Nobs we decided that this year we should start our own seasonal traditions, especially with Nigel in mind.
So Darrell got Nigel to help him decorate a small Easter Egg tree on the bedside table in their bedroom……… along with the lovely Easter Bunny card sent to us by Jan the Fan …. xxxx THANK YOU xxxx Jan the Fan.
It didn’t take long for Nigel was be filled with awe and wonder and though Darrell could sense that he was obviously very excited, he managed to reign in Nigel’s natural effervescence by maintaining a calm aura himself during the proceedings.
Now …… Darrell and I have heard about the Easter Bunny (we know that he leaves Easter eggs in peoples gardens in the US, but we are not so sure if he in fact travels to UK flying in a magic hutch or something like that) so the next part of our plan is a mahoooosive leap of faith ….. we have decided to adopt the principles of Christmas and leave out a bowl of especially purchased posh chantenay carrots and a Cadbury Twisted bar for the Bunny, just in case he happens hop, skip and jump past our house on Easter morn' ……. but I also have a contingency plan … if he doesn't, but I have kept that secret from Darrell too ....
