We received Cadbury's easter eggs - and after eating one of them I'm not sure I want to eat anymore. Especially with over a kilo of Lindt in the cupboard.

But that's a picture of an Austrian MediaMarkt. They're bound to keep things locked up underneath in Austria.

My cruise control apparently only starts functioning from 40km/h and up. The 30km/h areas are the expensive ones though.

Work as a teacher is taking away invaluable time that needs to be spent planning my holiday at the end of the year.
