When I was young, Easter egg hunts were not organised very well in my family. It was all about collecting the greatest number of chocolate eggs, so speed was of the essence. This in hindsight made little sense since mum used to split the eggs evenly between the kids after the hunt. But it did give us bragging rights if we found the most eggs.

During Easter you can always find me with food in my hand and mouth, in particular chocolate. I’m daydreaming about the dark chocolate bunnies right now.

A couple of weeks ago, Gina and I were in Melbourne with a few hours to spare on Saturday morning. We knew exactly where we were going – the Queen Victoria Market.

Neither of us have been before, but heard so many great things, so we went in with high expectations. Let me say – we were not disappointed. I loved the different precincts in the market – deli hall, meat hall, fruit & vegetables, and lots of bargains. I want such a market right next to my place, back in Sydney.
