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.

Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself

This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
Rogue theatre company review
Review of The Firebird by the Rogue Theatre Company in Cornwall
August 31, 2018
Imagine, if you will, being met by a fairy at the edge of magical woodland, and led down a secret pathway shaded by old twisted rowan and chattering leaves of beech, but lit by glinting lights strung through the branches. Each way you turn you’re met with strange and eerie settings of mysterious white princess bedrooms, strangely metallic baby clothes hanging on a line; gothic ravens adorning old books; abandoned tea parties disturbingly strewn with red; and odd antique paintings foreseeing the future; each with its character singing, dancing or otherwise performing as you pass. And that’s just the beginning…..
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…..
