Happy Easter!

Thankfully the Easter Bunny is a key worker in Scotland and he really outdid himself at our house with an Easter Egg trail, complete with clues! These were my clues and I found the surprise at the end which is a Booja-Booja chocolate egg. The Vego bar was in my cargo bike which has 3 wheels. Vego and Booja-Booja are the best chocolates on the planet. Thank you, Easter Bunny!

We told Daniel yesterday the Easter Bunny had coronavirus. He was skeptical and went Googling and discovered it was fake news.

If you’re looking for a different type of exercise workout to do at home I can recommend The Highland Hustle which is a Scottish dancing exercise video created by former world Highland Dancing champion, Gillian Brough. I’ve been learning Highland Dance for a year now and it’s very athletic and a good way to get fit and build strength in your legs. The exercise videos are for anyone but I think you’ll find it easier if you at least know how to do a pas de basque.

What’s especially wonderful about the Highland Hustle fitness videos is they’re filmed in beautiful Perthshire rather than in a boring studio. At least, the one I have is filmed against magnificent scenery. Here’s the trailer:

You can purchase the workout here. There are also some free online resources and live virtual classes.

I hope you all have a Happy Easter, wherever you are.

  1. I’ve been cycling up and down the hill I live on recently to get strong legs. That is a bonus of reduced traffic and more time. Doing dance for fun seems a great way to do the same thing but I’m sure yours are pretty strong already from the cycling.
    My Vego shop has gone to orders only and it seems a bit much to put in an offer for just Vego but luckily Holland and Barrett has Vego spread, which is just as yummy, the nutty bits make it very special. Glad yours had some treats from Easter Bunny. I was thinking about them today as Rhiannon has taught me how to play Minecraft and it seems to be a very good thing for children to play. Although I find it very hard. I only have logs and planks at the moment.

    1. We love the Vego spread too but I have to stop myself from buying it otherwise I eat it by the spoonful 🙂

      I’m impressed you’re playing Minecraft! I wouldn’t be able to do anything in the game lol but the kids love it. It has been a constant entertainment for years and years. They never seem to tire of it. They both like Roblox quite a lot too.

  2. Happy Easter. To you and your family as well. Looks like good news about Boris. He’s fortunate. Marty in New Jersey (M :-))

    1. Happy Easter to you too, Marty! I hope you’re well and managing ok through these strange times.

    1. It is sooo yummy. My favourite chocolate has always been Vego but the Booja Booja I got from EB was the hazelnut crunch with chocolate truffles and it was soooo good. I think it even surpasses Vego.
