Darrell and I didn’t see an awful lot of Nigel after breakfast yesterday, as we had organised an Easter Egg Hunt in the “grounds” of Castle Greysquirrel for the little fella!
We didn’t do anything elaborate, no fancy signs, clues, or pointy arrows, this was a pure Bear Grylls exercise, executed to afford both Darrell and I maximum peace…….
……. and having a large garden for Nigel to cover was always going to be an extra bonus!!!! All we told Nigel at the start of his
mission Easter Egg Hunt, should he wish to accept it, was that there were 30 items of an Easter type nature to be found.
At that, Nigel’s powers of initiative kicked in and he made himself a numbered tick list, there was no way any stone would go unturned, every item would be found and accounted for!
I have to say, Nigel is no quitter …..
…… he went out with his bucket and said tick list at 10.45am and returned jubilant, bucket full, at 5.25pm, only taking a short break at about 12.30pm for two egg sandwiches, an apple and a carton of Umbongo!
And, I do admit to feeling a smidgeon of guilt that some of the items of an Easter type nature were VERY well hidden …..
