I got very excited this week as I found they were selling Cadbury's Crème Eggs in the English Shop in town. At a rather steep 79 cents a pop. Of course, price does not always stop an addict/aficionado, so I bought and devoured one as a special treat to myself. Simon is going back to England on Tuesday, to attend a workshop, and so I’ve already asked him to bring back a multi-pack of Crème Eggs from the airport.

Now, I know shops tend to get ahead of themselves with their seasonal merchandising. However, this year Easter really isn’t that far in the future. In a fortnight the massive Shrovetide annual carnival of Cologne will already be in full swing. It heralds the 40 days of Lent. Then hey ho, what do you know? Easter will be upon us.
