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.

Approaching forty – Is it time to take out my piercings?
April 13, 2018
It has been on my mind for a while that maybe it’s time to take out some of the piercings in my face, and as I’m turning forty in a couple of days, I thought now would be a good time to do so! Over the years two other piercings have fallen by the wayside – I took out my belly-button ring when I was pregnant with Jude as it was getting in the way, and (rightly so) I felt my days of showing off my tummy in a crop top were over. Then about four years ago the ball on the end of my tongue piercing came off, and as I didn’t know what size to replace it with, I just took it out. Now don’t get me wrong; I’m a firm believer in wearing whatever the f**k you want, regardless of age, but there are a couple of reasons that have led me to think that it’s time for a change….
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…
