Cadbury’s and Carr’s Biscuits

Well, it’s Christmas!
Ok, so I’m a bit early in opening my Cadbury’s Christmas biscuits, but the tin was so shiny and purple and I could hear the little chocolate covered shortcakes calling, ‘Eat me Helen, Eat me!’ So I had to oblige, just to keep them quiet.
So I opened the lid and found loads of packaging. And some more. And somewhere buried amongst all the packaging were a few biscuits. Most of which were either ginger (which I don’t like) or honeycomb flavour (which I don’t particularly like, but will eat when I’m hungry enough) and you got extra of these raspberry flavoured biscuits which were absolutely vile (and nobody would like). So basically there was a scramble for the chocolate fingers and the tiny mini Cadbury chocolate pieces, and the couple of chocolate orange covered biscuits, and they were practically gone before you could say ‘Too much packaging’. And this was in the biggest 1.5kg tin!
For £15 (in Tescos) this was an absolute rip off and a big disappointment. So if you’re going to spend that much money on biscuits for Christmas, get Carr’s Collection. They only cost £3.39 (in Sainsbury’s) a box, so you could get change from buying 4 boxes of them and get double the amount of biscuits – all of which are delicious (except for the white chocolate covered ones as I don’t like white chocolate – but luckily there aren’t many of them).
As you can see, I feel very passionately about my biscuits. This may be the start of many food reviews to come.

Adagio teas
Tea for people who don’t like tea! (And for those who do.)
October 3, 2018
When Adagio Teas asked if I’d like to work with them, I had to be honest in my reply; that I don’t actually like tea. On my trips to America, this is like saying I’m not actually British, but my main disgruntle is that I couldn’t join in with all the beautiful Instagrams of cups of tea! I do, however like fruit infusions, and the mango flavoured tea I had at the Jane Austen Centre a couple of weeks ago was very nice, so I asked if I could try their flavoured tea….
Dorling Kindersley Fashion book review
The book you must buy if you’re interested in Fashion – the ultimate book of costume and style Published by DK Dorling Kindersley – Book review
October 30, 2017
Everything about the cover of this book is misleading, and unfortunately you will find it in bookshops with a cellophane wrapper so you may not be able to look inside. With only the word ‘Fashion’ in bold pink letters on the spine, and a modern slim-fitting dress flocked on the front, you would be forgiven for thinking this is a book about modern fashion. You’d be wrong…
making a new patio area
Making a social outdoor dining area
September 16, 2018
We have been dragging our heels for ages over buying a new set of outdoor furniture. Our old wooden table and chairs are well and truly rotting away. We have also had it in our minds to build a verandah at the back of the house, leaning against the kitchen wall. However, each spring has come along and we’ve ended up spending any spare money we’ve had on a holiday instead. So it hasn’t happened, but the idea was still there, and it made a choice on the garden furniture difficult to make…..
Is it time to start making an effort?
November 23, 2016
Fashion and Beauty are terms that generally go hand in hand, particularly when describing the genre for some bloggers. However, whilst I am always interested in what’s on the catwalk, I can’t honestly say I’m all that bothered about ‘beauty’. I like looking at the craftsmanship of couture clothing, but I’m not rushing out to buy the latest eyeshadow primer. I suppose my interest has increased in the last six months or so when I’ve started blogging and making You Tube videos and my image is out there a bit more; and it got me thinking about how I’ve thought about beauty products over the years and how it’s changed…..
