So Tom might nearly be a teenager and Ben only is 16 months behind him but they proved on Monday that they are not too old for an Easter Egg Hunt. I hadn't thought they would want one but I was wrong so supplies were hurriedly bought. I read of others doing their hunts on Good Friday - but that was no good as it is not a Bank Holiday here in France and the boys were at school. On Saturday there were normal sports for the boys - athletics in the morning for Tom and rugby in the afternoon for Ben so no time then. Sunday should have been ideal but for the fact it was raining and Ben had designated Easter Sunday a Pyjama Day meant the Hunt was delayed again!
Monday it was then. Boys were told to stay in the house and eggs were hidden.
Ready, Steady ... GO!!!

Easter Sunday was not without egg discoveries, though. When we eventually persuaded Ben out of his PJs he went out for some fresh air and whilst nosing around in the empty pig field he found 2 duck eggs in the shelter! That makes 3 nests of eggs we currently have and only 2 ducks! I have no idea who is laying what or where or how old these eggs might be but the water test revealed them to be relatively fresh. (They sank in a bowl of water where-as old eggs sort of bob on their ends and off eggs float).
This stash was not as large as the one of hens' eggs I found in an abandoned hen house last year mind. Naughty hens!!
