I have admired my girlfriend Mairead's vast egg cup collection for over 20 years. Today is the day I am finally going to have an egg in one of her many cups! She will be assisted in the cooking of the breakfast by her daughter Fiona pictured in their kitchen above. Mairead is a freelance designer. Also crafty, she painted the cupboards on the left in this pic. Pictured below is about 1/3 of her amazing collection. The piggy in the top picture was my dad's. It has tiny leather ears.
