Yesterday I took 7 mins to boil these eggs (goose eggs take a little longer than hens) and for my efforts I was rewarded with 2 hours of relative peace and quiet as two happy children coloured patterns on them. Plus another 2 hours today as they played Hunt the Egg, each taking it in turns to hide the eggs. Plus another hour when they vanished off to the bottom field to roll the eggs down the sledging hill. Finally the well-travelled eggs became treats for the piglets and everyone was happy. What a good return on time spent in preparation!
