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,

Looking for the perfect base – Review of Boots No 7 day cream; Rimmel mattifying primer & Bare Minerals matt powder foundation
October 12, 2017
I’m sure I could be psycho-analysed about this; but I cannot run out of something unless I’ve already bought the thing I’m going to use next – even if I know that’s not for some time! During our recent trip to America, I planned on buying a few products that I regularly use so that I have them all set to go when I ‘hit pan’ on my current ones! The first of these is the No7 Protect and Perfect Day Cream. I stood in my local Boots a couple of months ago and couldn’t bring myself to spend £25 on the next one, so I thought I’d wait until I could get it slightly cheaper across the pond. The second item was Maybelline mineral powder foundation, but as they didn’t have that any more, I was tempted into buying the Bare Minerals matte powder foundation instead. The primer was an impulse purchase as I was drawn in by the ‘mattifying’ bit on the label. Yes, there is a theme here. And yes, if a matte moisturising day cream existed, I would buy that too!….
Victor Frankenstein starring James McAvoy and Daniel Radcliffe
March 10, 2016
This review is coming from the point of view of someone who has never read Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein or seen any other film about it, and first thing I can say is that I don’t think that mattered at all, and may have even been better that way. I mean, Mary Shelley wrote the book in 1818 where-as the film was set roughly 1870s I would say, judging from my recent in-depth research into the late Victorian period. I couldn’t find any definitive information on this online either, so perhaps the film-makers deliberately kept the date ambiguous. It peaked my interest though; particularly as the beginning is set at a circus…
My Cornwall photo on canvas! Printed by Printerpix
October 6, 2016
Chris and I are very fussy about art for our walls, and we don’t always have the same taste. We compromise by never ending up getting anything! However, when the opportunity came up to have one of my photographs blown up and printed onto canvas, I was really excited by it. I have a massive 60% discount code at Printerpix for you at the end of this post. I chose a picture I took during our recent campervan trip to Cornwall. The old disused mine is easy to find on the North coast road near Morvah. It’s a popular spot for rock-climbers and hundreds passed us on the footpath towards the cliffs, lugging their gear with them. It was fairly early in the morning when we went photo-spotting, and I turned away from the sea and looked back at this ruined mine building….
Afternoon tea in Bath
Afternoon Tea with Mr Darcy at the Jane Austen Centre in Bath, Somerset
September 21, 2018
We asked what Jude would like to do for her Twentieth birthday (yes, you did hear me correctly: twentieth birthday) and she asked to go out for afternoon tea. I’ll be honest, when I agreed, I was thinking more like at a National Trust cafe, but Jude had in mind the full afternoon tea experience. Apart from on a cruise, I’ve never done this, (it’s the sort of thing I’ll do when I grow up) so was looking forward to experiencing the proper deal….
