Welcome to my blog

This is it! I've given up work -retired from the rat race and am about to start on a 10 year adventure, doing all those things I've been meaning to do but never had the time to do them. I've offloaded my responsibilities and it is now my time. So follow my adventures and see whether I actually manage anything!

End of the Faberge egg hunt

The egg hunt ended this weekend as all the eggs from around London were brought to Covent Garden for one final viewing before they are all auctioned for charity. I couldn't resist one last look at the ones I had failed to find. Here are my favourites:

Mayoral egg

Busby


The prep egg

Metropolis
Sao Paulo Skyline
Union Jack

Where's Wally


There was even a hospital to mend all the broken eggs!



This one was a particular favourite of mine: Eggsquisit London
I was tempted to bid for one of them until I saw how much they were going for. Remember the Egg letter box in my previous blog on Eggs well that raised £42,000! Humpty Dumpty raised £51,000! But at least I have the photos as reminders of a fabulous egg-hunt.
Happy Easter everyone

  1. Hi Fun60! I just signed up to follow you. You wrote me an email but didn't provide a way for me to respond to your query about the picture I posted in Joan's "green" contest. It is indeed Beijing, but it's Bailong Park, not the Summer Palace. I hope to learn more about you through your blog! :-)

  3. They are so imaginative. Great idea. A bit expensive for an egg.

  4. What a fabulous time you must have had chasing all these eggs! Those prices are a bit scary... I wonder who bought them and where would they put them? They were pretty big!!!
