Eggs-travagant! World’s most expensive Easter egg costs £5million and has 1,000 diamonds

CREME Eggs don’t look as exciting now the world’s most glitzy and expensive Easter treat is on the scene. However at a cool £5million you’ll need to be a billionaire to shell out for this sparkly one-off piece…

A cross between a luxury Faberge egg and the Damien Hirst skull, the Mirage is a unique gem that only the Simon Cowells and Richard Bransons of this world can afford.The incredible ornament has more than 1,000 diamonds on its “shell”, worth £1.5million alone, 100 of which are a unique cut.The jewel-encrusted egg then opens up to reveal an ornate globe which was hand-crafted in 18 carat gold. Within the globe, a rock crystal dove with a gold beak and gems for eyes, is perched on a lavish gold olive branch.The dove and olive branch were hand carved and were included as symbols of world peace.

Mirage has taken a whopping three years to make, with work carried out by elite craftsmen across three continents.Manfred Wild, the main man responsible for Mirage’s design and assembly, has brought the creation to life.Vashi Dominguez, jeweller to the stars and the diamond entrepreneur, is trying to persuade the mystery owner of this masterpiece to sell Mirage.

“Mirage is, quite simply, one of the finest jewels ever created,” said Dominguez. “The owner has said he has no intention of selling the wondrous piece, but if someone really wants it I can see if we can come to an agreement.“The diamonds alone are worth more than £1.5 million while labour costs were around the same.” At £5million, Mirage would cost the same price as a posh London home or 30 times the price of a Ferrari 458 Italia supercar.

If the average Brit saved their entire salary, it would take them 243 years before they could afford Mirage.However, Mr Dominguez believes the owner would end up wanting more.
“The owner doesn’t need to sell Mirage, but it is all about one-upmanship in the world of the billionaire and money does talk.“Owning this special item would be a great coup for someone to whom money is no object.”

Usually select the “play” recommendations in each picture to pay attention to brief circumstances from each one. Hoppy Easter!

Easter songs

Easter Rabbit

A rabbit came to my house once,
With funny,stretched-out ears (Hands on head like bunny ears)
His nose was full of wiggles, and (wiggle nose)
His eyes were full of fears (point to eyes)
I said,”Why do you twitch your nose?
Is that a bunny habit?
And are you called the “March Hare”
Or called the Easter Rabbit?
He never said a word: but bounced (Hands on head like bunny ears)
Away on pushing legs; (Hop forward)
But, oh, he left behind a nest (Look backward)
Of colored Easter eggs!

Bunny Pokey Sung to

“Hokey Pokey”
You put your bunny ears in
(Place hands on head to make ears)
You put your bunny ears out.
You put your bunny ears in.
And you shake them all about.
You do the Bunny Pokey
And hop yourself around,
That’s what it’s all about!
Additional verses: “You put your bunny nose in, You put your bunny tail in,
You put your bunny paws in”

The Easter Bunny Song

Oh, the Easter Bunny’s coming, she’s the one I long to see.
She’s got eggs in her basket, she’s bringing them to me.
I’m looking out the window and I hope she gets here quick,
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.

Oh, I love Easter Sunday and it comes round every year
Right now I’m so excited cause the Easter Bunny’s here!
The Easter eggs are lovely, with swirls on them because,
The Easter Bunny paints them with her little furry paws.

We’ll take the eggs and hide them, all up and down the hill,
And I’ll go back to find them with my little brother, Bill.
We will pile up all the goodies and I’ll eat all I can take,
And then end Easter Sunday with a big old belly ache.

Now sing briskly

Oh, the Easter Bunny’s coming, she’s the one I long to see.
She’s got eggs in her basket, she’s bringing them to me.
I’m looking out the window and I hope she gets here quick,
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.
I need marshmallow bunnies and a little chocolate chick.

Classic Easter Bunny song

Here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail,
Hippity, hoppity,
Easter’s on its way.

Bringin’ every girl and boy Baskets full of Easter joy,
Things to make your Easter bright and gay.
He’s got jelly beans for Tommy,
Colored eggs for sister Sue,
There’s an orchid for your Mommy
And an Easter bonnet, too.

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Happy Easter day.

Here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail,
Look at him stop,
and listen to him say:
“Try to do the things you should.”
Maybe if you’re extra good,
He’ll roll lots of Easter eggs your way.

You’ll wake up on Easter morning
And you’ll know that he was there
When you find those choc’late bunnies
That he’s hiding ev’rywhere.

Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail,
Hoppin’ down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Happy Easter day.

 News,Travel,Children,Easter,UK Breaks

If you’re not going away over the Easter holidays, you may be struggling to think of ways to keep the kids entertained. But you don’t need to get on a plane to have fun; there are plenty of options on our doorstep that will keep both you and the children amused.

Here we offer 10 suggestions for days out over Easter, as well as tips to keep the costs down.

UK city days out

A day out in one of the UK’s cities could be a great way to teach your children more about the country they live in and, whether you choose to explore on foot, on an open-top bus or even on a boat, you’ll learn all sorts of interesting facts about the UK’s history.

Why not soak up the atmosphere in London in the run up to the Olympic Games and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations? The Oxford vs Cambridge boat race takes place on April 7, so if you want to watch this historic sporting event, plan your trip around that.

If you want to visit any of the big attractions in the capital, pre-book tickets to save on entry costs and take a look at MoneySupermarket’s vouchers channel to take advantage of offers. Current money off vouchers include 20% off entrance to the London Dungeon, 20% off the price of the Doctor Who tour and 20% off the price of City Cruises down the River Thames.
Other good options for city day trips include York, Manchester, Chester, Bristol, Bath and Edinburgh. 

Countryside retreats

Or, if you would prefer to escape the hustle and bustle of the city, make a packed lunch and head into the British countryside to explore for the day. If your child is a bookworm, a trip to the Lake District to learn all about Beatrix Potter and William Wordsworth will inspire them while sports-mad children will love learning how to surf on one of the UK’s many beautiful (and often deserted) beaches in areas such as Cornwall, Devon and Northumberland. 

If you decide to explore the area over a day or two, you could take a look at the late availability of countryside cottages and B&Bs, and if you travel by train, make sure you book in advance to save on walk-up fees.

Oh I do like to be beside the seaside

If your children aren’t keen on surfing, but love the seaside, a day out in a traditional British seaside resort such as Blackpool, Brighton, Bournemouth or Weston-Super-Mare eating fish and chips, walking down the beach and playing in the amusement arcades is sure to keep all of the family entertained.

And, if you want to visit one of the attractions by the sea with the kids, check online for discount codes before you pack your bucket and spade. Current offers on MoneySupermarket include 20% off entry to the Sealife Centre in Blackpool and 20% off SeaQuarium in Weston-Super-Mare.

EASTER T

Easter time is upon us

Spring has come at last

Displaying all her beauty

Like a carpet she has cast

 

Out of the dreary winter

With colours of every shade

A breath-taking panorama

That Mother Nature has made

 

Frogs in the Lilly ponds

With frogspawn all around

Soon there will be tadpoles

Jumping up and down

Birds are also busy

Building with haste and zest

Making ready for new life

As they build their precious nest

 

 Children prepare their Easter bonnets

Decorated with chicks eggs and glue

Display them at the Easter Parade

For the delights of me and you

 

It’s a time of new beginnings

To focus on new things to do

 Be more positive in your thinking

To create a better future for you

That’s no yolk! ‘World’s largest Easter egg’ weighing 4 TONS and over 27ft high unveiled in Argentina

Weighing in at over four tons, a contender for the world’s largest Easter egg was unveiled to a crowd of chocolate lovers in Argentina today. 

Twenty-seven bakeries worked for two weeks to make enough chocolate for the gargantuan concoction wheeled in to the Chocolate Festival in Bariloche.

Towering over 27ft high (8.5m) and 16ft wide (5m), the sweet treat required a reported 8,800lbs (4,000kgs) of chocolate, hovering over a sea of spectators who gathered for a taste.

The major of San Carlos de Bariloche, Omar Goye, was present at the festival, where the Easter egg was to be certified by the Guinness Records as the world’s largest.   

 

Chocolatier Diego Ferraris told Esenciapatagonia.com the Easter egg was assembled using a wooden mold as foundation for the chocolate spread.

The chocolate egg is said to have beaten the previous record for the world’s largest, built in Belgium, which stood 8.32m (27.3ft) high.

But temperatures in the region meant crowds didn’t have long to admire the egg before it started melting.

Chefs used cranes to break off chunks of the chocolate and hand them out to the crowd as the sun beamed down. 

The Chocolate Festival has lured chocolatiers and chocolate lovers to the region since 1969 with events, races and other chocolate-themed activities. 

The festival this year ran from March 31-April 8.

Tips for having lots of flowers around the house without spending a fortune www.apartmentapothecary.com

 “Do you buy fresh flowers everyday???”. This got me thinking about some of the things I do to make sure there is always at least one vase of flowers in the house, despite the fact I probably don’t buy flowers more than twice a month and I never spend more than about £8 on any bunch I buy.

Tip one: The basics

Im sure most people know all of this but when you make a flower arrangement, to make it last as long as possible, cut the stems diagonally so they can take in as much water as possible, change the water frequently and always remove the leaves – they should never be submerged in the water. Also, don’t over-crowd your flowers, allow them the space they need to survive as long as possible.

Tip two: Never buy bouquets

I learnt a long time ago that even though beautifully arranged bouquets of flowers look very tempting and seem like the easy option, they actually never look quite as good once they are unwrapped and they are not good value for money. When you buy flowers always choose your own, even if that can be a bit daunting. Don’t worry if you have the florist loitering behind you or you’re not sure which flowers go with which, just grab a few of anything you love the look of.

Tips for having lots of flowers around the house without spending a fortune www.apartmentapothecary.com

Tip three: Make a few small arrangements instead of one big one

If you want a glimpse of colour and cheer in most rooms, it is far easier to achieve this for less by creating several small arrangements, rather than one large one –

 If you worry about not having enough vases use jam jars, kilner jars, empty spice bottles, jugs, even a mug! Group flowers together by colour, size, texture or height or a complete mix: there are no rules. However, make sure you only include in any arrangement an odd number of stems i.e. 1,2,3,5,7,9 and so on (I know 2 is not an odd number but this is the only exception to the rule). This will always look better than an even number of stems. Also, cut your flowers to different heights as this will make a more interesting lokking arrangement.

Tip four: Grow your own flowers

The best way to save money on flowers and to have a readily available supply is to grow your own. You do not need a garden for this, a small outdoor space will do, but you need to choose what you grow carefully. I have two Hydrangea plants on my balcony because I know they will give me flowers throughout summer and when you cut them, they last for ages – cut them at an angle, put them straight into cold water and if you have extra time and energy a spritz with water on the petals is a good idea as they feed through their petals. I also grow a Lavender plant, which is very hardy, easy to look after and has lovely flowers throughout summer and gives scent to the home. Plant a container of wild flowers, too, if you can, as they make the most beautiful, rustic arrangements during spring when not a lot else is in flower. Don’t be afraid to use herbs in your floral arrangements as these are really easy to grow and add an unexpected element to a posie – I use Mint, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme.

Tip five: Recycle

Keep an eye on your floral arrangements, don’t just leave them to languish. If a stem is dying take it out and throw it away leaving the rest to continue. If the head of a flower is fine but the stem has collapsed, remove the head and place in water in a bowl or tea cup – they can last for ages this way. Also, if you have a few small arrangements, when they start to fade salvage the freshest looking and bring them together to form a new arrangement that will last that bit longer.

Tip six: Plant bulbs indoors

Such an easy thing to do but adds so much colour and cheer and you have fresh flowers in your home for weeks for nothing!

So there you go, my six top tips for adding flowers to your home for a minimal amount of money. It may seem a lot of effort, but once you start getting in to flowers, it almost becomes a bit addictive and the joy of having even the smallest posie sitting next to you as you sleep, eat, watch TV or work is just delightful.
