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.

Jeremy Loops concert at Perranporth, Cornwall
September 14, 2016
The campervan couldn’t get into the main car park at Perranporth by about three inches, so we parked on the cliff-top, which gave us a beautiful view of the bay and sun beginning to set into the ocean. It isn’t often bands we like venture into the South-West and we were gutted when Jeremy Loops tickets for Bristol sold out before we had chance to buy some; however it was the perfect excuse to go to Cornwall when we saw he was playing there too. We’d never been to The Watering Hole before – it’s a cafe/restaurant/gig venue literally in the middle of the beach. It must’ve been a right pain in the bum to get all the band gear over there! The tickets said the doors opened at nine, so we got there about ten minutes early, sorted out our wrist-bands and bought a drink to sit outside with and watch the sun sink into the water….
Anti-reflective coating on your glasses – is it worth it?
October 9, 2016
Whenever I’m recording a You Tube video in my work-room, all I seem to do is spin round in circles trying not to have massive white rectangles on my glasses. They somehow even manage to appear with my back to the window! When Chris is taking photos for my Weekly Wardrobe posts, we’ve more-or-less given up with glasses, so I stumble about blind for the sake of not having glaring white blobs in the middle of my face. (Hashtag blogger problems.) I am so short-sighted, I cannot see a thing without them, and I hate that feeling so much. So finally, even though there was nothing particularly wrong with my glasses, I decided to splash out and buy a new pair with anti-reflective coating….

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…..
