Sample Text from Eva the Energetic Egg Timer

This is a story all about Eva and yes, she’s an egg timer.

Because timing eggs only takes minutes, Eva had a lot of time on her hands. It gave her time to think so she thought a lot about chocolate.

Bars of chocolate, boxes of chocolates, chocolate biscuits, chocolate cake – anything so long as it was chocolate.

But there had to be more to life than chocolate?

Just then, Freddie scratched his nose and this gave Eva an idea. “I wonder how many times he does that in a minute?”

“STOP!!!” said Ivy putting her hands over her ears. “Everyone is tired of being timed and told about it…”

“PLEASE go back to timing eggs!”

Eva thought this was a BRILLIANT idea.

In no time at all, she arrived at the henhouse where two lovely soft hens were chattering about what hens always chatter about… …eggs.

They laughed when they saw Eva. “Oh my word and glory be! Now’s there’s a funny thing to see in a henhouse!”

“Can I time how long it takes you to lay an egg?” asked Eva.

“Yes, but we can’t be hurried,” they clucked. “You can’t hurry an egg, Oh dearie me no!”
