    I fumed at not being able to go to the garden centre to buy plants because they were left out of the Sunday trading laws and have to stay closed!
    Don't work out, work in.

    Never eat anything that's served in a bucket.

    That stinks! It was a great day here for planting, nice and sunny and fairly warm.

    I think it is very good that on certain days there are official holidays on which shops are closed like Easter Sunday, First Christmas day, Whitsunday and New Years day. That leaves 361 days for shopping and that seems quite enough.

    It's just another Sunday for me.

    Yeah well, not everyone celebrates those holidays. Some people want to do other things instead, and when everything is closed up you can't do anything. I was glad that there were some restaurants and stores open yesterday.

    Here there are no Sunday trading laws, so everything is closed every Sunday. I found it frustrating at first, used to 7/7 opening in the UK. Now I kind of like the different feel to Sunday, like I remember it used to be in England before 1994.

    I can't stand it when everything is closed. I feel so cut off. Seems like those are always the times when I need something too, whether I forgot something or whatever the case may be.

    Re: How do you celebrate Easter?

    My Easter celebration has always been completely secular. We have a big meal with the extended family and hide Easter eggs for all the little kids in the family to hunt. We also usually go visit my in-laws' graves since they died on Easter.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
