It was Easter Sunday, and all the girls were eggcited (Do you see what I did there?!?! !!!!). Gayle had been up early and hidden a barrel load of chocolate eggs all around Teddy Bo Towers and the gardens outside. Little did Gayle know that Claire had risen early from bed deliberately to follow Gayle around as she hid each egg. Claire followed at a distance, and with a pad and pen took notes of where all the eggs were.
Half past ten in the morning, the girls all started to rise for breakfast. “Easter Sunday Eve” had now become a big booze up session for the girls, and had been added to the calendar, along with Pancake Tuesday Eve; all the Saints Day Eve’s (St Andrew, St George etc); April Fool’s Day Eve; Bonfire Night Eve; the list goes on.
A bleary eyed Claire had an extra ten minutes in bed after her escapade that morning, and trotted in to find a load of girls stuffing haggis porridge down their throats, getting more and more excited about the Easter egg hunt.
Gayle let off a popper with streamers, and that signalled the start of the hunt. The girls all split up, racing up and down through the tower. Claire took her time, and an extra large carrier bag, notebook and pen, and wandered through the tower picking up all the eggs.
The girls between them found a couple, this did it’s bit to encourage them further, and chants of “Chocolate, Chocolate, Chocolate” could be heard around the tower.
No one noticed Claire and her plastic bag that was increasing in size as the morning wore on.
Tired and dejected, the girls returned in dribs and drabs to the main hall to see who had all the eggs. Discussions on where the eggs were started to get heated, and then they noticed that Claire wasn’t among them. The girls put 2 and 2 together, and for once made 4.
And so started the great egg hunt as the girls charged around the tower opening up every door and looking under every bed, and eventually found Claire hiding in the broom cupboard, chocolate dribbling down over her face.
Now normally the girls would be reasonably fair, and would hold court in the middle of the main hall. This gives the defendant a chance to state their story. But this was chocolate, and nothing more evil could occur in the tower than a chocolate hoarder.
Poor Claire had to spend all her savings on chocolate for the girls, and will be doing the weekly chocolate shopping trip for the next 3 months so now the other girls don’t need to take their turn.
Just a warning for all you crafters out there. Never get in between a design team member and a piece of chocolate. It’s not good for your health.
