When I was little I can remember that I hated Easter. But not because my family couldn’t afford chocolate eggs because although we couldn’t we always got some off neighbours and relatives that were better off. No, I hated it because it was that time of year I was forced by the school art teacher into painting an Easter inspired egg! News Flash!!! I have no art skill at all! Not one bit. My eggs would always be the class laughing-stock. But looking back it seems I just needed to be a bit more of a nerd! Then maybe I might have been able to pull off one of these bad boys…
