Having eaten my way through the chocolate ones I thought I'd include some real eggs for April. Traditionally being the month of new birth, it has been a pleasure to see the blossom and the plants and trees stretching their new growth. It has also been the month where some summer adventures have been planned, holidays and projects. Great to have things to look forward to! Taking a look at how the books have been coming along...
