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,

A review of ‘Things are what you make of them’ – Life advice for Creatives by Adam J. Kurtz
March 21, 2018
Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….
Review of the mitre restaurant in Oxford
A quick review of The Mitre restaurant in Oxford
April 19, 2017
My trip to Oxford was a year ago now, but I found this review in my notebook, so I thought I’d type it up as it could be useful to someone visiting Oxford. Just to fill you in, as part of my Christmas and birthday presents, I had a little two-night stay in a lovely hotel near the city, all by myself. It was heaven! Anyway, you can never go wrong with a Beefeater restaurant, so I tried the one on Oxford High Street called The Mitre….
Boots No 7 LIFT & luminate Day cream review
March 8, 2017
For me there’s a fine line between looking young and dewy, and looking fat and sweaty. This is the problem of having a round chubby face, and I’ve always gone as matte as possible with my make-up to avoid the second scenario as much as possible. However, as Boots no7 changed the formula of their Protect and Perfect Day cream, and I wasn’t as impressed as I was with their older version, I thought I would try out this one, which is part of their new Lift & Luminate range…..
