Terry’s All Gold Dark Chocolates

(And a mention of Black Magic) Hmmmm…………….

It’s not my birthday, it’s not an anniversary; it’s not Christmas yet; I’m not depressed; I’m not even on my period, but I am sitting here eating through a nice big box of dark chocolates. (That’s the chocolates themselves, not the actual box btw). Every now and then my husband just surprises me with a little present. (Before all you wives groan – he really isn’t big on flowers. I have to buy my own flowers no matter what the occasion. (I know he’s really feeling guilty when it’s flowers!))

I love dark chocolates. They are just so much richer than milk chocolate. The higher amount of iron in them is good for my blood too. (Well that’s what I’m convincing myself right now). I barely ever buy a chocolate bar from the newsagent because Twixes, Kitkats, Flakes, Twirls etc only ever rarely come in dark chocolate in a special edition.

So anyway, at Christmas I was given a box of Black Magic and I have to say frankly I was quite disappointed. There were a few I liked, but there were probably more that were just ok, or even didn’t like at all. For a start there were far too many that were coffee flavoured. So I told him not to get that type of chocolates again. (Though much later. At the time I was polite and grateful :o)

And this time I have Terry’s All Gold Dark chocolates and they are delicious. Though definitely a box to avoid if you’re allergic to nuts as there are loads with nuts in them; which is great for me as those are my favourites. The coffee flavoured ones are even mild enough for me to eat. So the only ones I give away are the fudge ones! Gorgeous, gorgeous gorgeous. And for £3.98 from Sainsburys; 2 large layers; I think they are definitely worth it.

Eating in, Food,

Review of the L’Oreal Voluminous Superstar Mascara
February 15, 2017
On holiday in America in 2015 I bought the L’Oreal Beauty Tubes mascara. This was amazing, but when I went back last year, I couldn’t find it again. Instead, L’Oreal had this mascara, called Voluminous Superstar. It is one of those mascaras with two ends – a white coat first to lengthen your lashes and then the actual mascara to go over the top. This was just what I was looking for as I’ve liked those kind ever since I bought the Maybelline XXL volume mascara. (See my review here from 2005)……
Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
Review of the Rose and Crown in Dunton Green
Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent
February 9, 2018
There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
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…..
