A cracking tale
There's an Easter egg competition at nursery today, and here is Charlotte proudly showing off her entry.
Unfortunately, what she doesn't yet know - and one fears is about to find out - is that Mummy forgot about said competition until just moments before this picture was taken.
The result is that Charlotte's egg was cooked for a significantly shorter period than the recommended norm to achieve hard-boiled status.
You can guess the rest. But, as a responsible parent, I fail to see the yoke (OH COME ON!!!)
Yes friends, the nursery egg-off is over for another year and, when I went in to pick her up, no-one told me that Charlotte had won.
This might explain why.
What do you mean you can't spot Charlotte's exhibit in amongst the farmyard scene, Peppa Pig on a slide and Jesus being born as an egg?
Hold on, I'll zoom in.....................look, there it is.
I think Charlotte's can only properly be described as the reverse of a stand-out entry. But at least it's in tact.
(Were I not such a nice daddy, I might gently enquire as to what - if any - distractions some of the other parents have in their lives if they have the time to build such dreamy scenes. But I am. So I won't. Not that I'm bitter. F*****s).
