Easter break has begun

Easter is almost here and I’m feeling kind of bad, that I find myself looking more forward to the four day break than the actual celebration of Easter itself.

This year we are lucky in that both Greek Easter and Catholic Easter happen to fall on the same day. Bonus, one celebration for both. My mum is having us all over at Easter, for one of her famous, delicious, lip smacking, mouth watering lunches.

Still there is much to prepare before then. I still have shopping to do, eggs to dye (the traditional Greek way), a pile of laundry to tackle, housework that never seems to end. I could go on but I’m getting tired just thinking about it.

So for the time being I will rejoice knowing that work is four glorious days away, there is an obscene amount of chocolate in my house, and I have ahead of me four days of fun with my family as we come together to celebrate Easter.



Lorikeets are such amazing birds! They have a cheeky playful nature, and a soft cuddly side.

My rainbow Lorikeet Molly is the cutest of them all! She has this disturbing attachment to one of her fruit bowls, its just a small plastic bowl but she won’t let it out of her sight.

More than often she can be found lying upside on the floor of her cage juggling the plastic bowl with her feet.

If she’s not lying on the cage floor holding the bowl she is dragging it along with one foot as she moves around. It’s just weird!

Every couple of months Molly will go through a phase where she will lay eggs one after the other for a couple of weeks. She doesn’t build a nest or anything like that, she just lays them on the bottom of her cage and then just doesn’t bother with them at all after that. Like I said its weird!

Is this typical of the Lorikeet breed? I don’t know, what I do know is that it’s typical of our Molly that’s for sure.
