I remember my first egg hunt. Every year, we went to spend Easter at my aunt's house. That year, I must have been three or four, and as I was the youngest in the family, as soon as we'd arrived, everyone had wanted to hold me. But all I was interested in was the chocolate that my parents had promised me in the car. On the way, they'd explained to me that the bells had passed over Auntie's garden, and that they'd dropped their precious chocolate eggs there! I'd thought to myself that they were quite clumsy, and that if it had been my eggs, I would have never been so careless! That day, I'd found exactly seven eggs - I still remember it - and I'd kept them jealously all weekend!
