I couldn’t sleep…

C’mon Jamie- fall asleep! You need your energy for tomorrow!

But it wasn’t tomorrow anymore. It was on the other side of my self-induced mandatory 7.33 hours of sleep!

The sooner you fall sleep the sooner you can celebrate Easter at BIG W, I gently remind myself…

” Want an Easter egg?!” cried a familiar voice.

” Ah! Who said that?”

That triggered an old question in my head. “Wait! What the heck do Easter bunnies have to do with chocolate?!”

” Beats me- all I know is that I like the taste of chocolate!” it chanted…
