When I were a lad we used get up and hour before we went to bed, we lived in a whole in the ground and ate coal for dinner, but try telling that to the kids these days and they wouldn't believe you!

OK, so Monty Python aside (who?), we used to use the flowers from a whin bush to colour our eggs at Easter as we boiled them, then roll them down a hill. I know, but times were simpler then. 

Last week when I told my 5year old daughter about this, we had to go do it. As we have ton of whin bushes at the back of our house it was no problem, but we just don't get white eggs these days to make this as effective.....but we had a little fun anyway.

 

Lots of whin bushes.
