The rain was coming down in sheets and it was blowing near gale-force winds as I left work yesterday afternoon. Determined I braved the elements and eventually reached my destination: the local supermarket. I was on a mission, and had one thought and one thought only on my mind. Mini eggs. I searched high and low, and just as fear started its descent I located them (in the aisle next to the one where I once saw Cate Blanchett) and I bought not one, but two bags.
Struggling against the wind and the rain I climbed the steep hill and eventually reached home, absolutely drenched. Opening the front door was pure bliss. I dried off, made a pot of tea; I grabbed my book, my mini eggs and armed with a blanket and several cushions I snuggled up on the sofa.
I love nothing more than a few hours alone with a good book, especially if it's raining cats and dogs outside. A pot of steaming hot tea and a cosy blanket are essential accessories, a bag or two of mini eggs optional extras. And desperately aware that I would today embark upon a mini egg-free 43 day challenge (my 38th birthday is only 43 days away…) their crisp sugary shells and rich milk chocolate insides tasted extra sweet yesterday.
Happy Love Thursday everyone!
