Today is Ukrainian (and other countries’) Easter. NOT necessarily Orthodox Easter (I’m Ukrainian Catholic) – a common (and very irritating for people like me) misconception!
Ukrainian Easter is a much bigger deal than Australian (American etc.) Easter, with lots and lots of traditions. Pysanky – intricately-decorated Easter eggs – feature in the baskets taken to church.
We moved my brother into an apartment in the city on Friday. I used muscles I didn’t know I owned (and they still hurt!) and have blisters on the bottoms of both my feet. Removalists are now at the top of my list of respected professions!
