On Tuesday evening we stared at the shelves of chocolate eggs for a long long time trying to decide which to choose. In the end we came home empty handed. I shouldn't have worried. Yesterday the postman rang the doorbell and handed over a large parcel... odd. Odd until we noticed the parcel was beautifully fragranced and featured lots of German words. An Easter gift basket full of chocolates, liquorice, peach and poppy seed cake in a jar, treats for rabbits, an Asterix book and Swabian goodies in the form of spaetzle (the Nivea is there as it's made in Hamburg and although our friend is Swabian she lives near Hamburg now).
Friends are the best.
