Home again, home again jiggerty jig!

Hello! yes I've been away! Ran away to the North with my 2 girls! To see my Mum and Dad.
We have had a fab week and a bit away, a well earned break...

And the weather was very very kind to us!

We did lots of exciting things, climbing hills, going to the local
zoo/farmy thing, lots of shopping (of course) and I think that one of the highlights was having a picnic lunch on the Island on Derwent Water! (my parents are friends with the inhabitants of the house!)

Beautiful isn't it?! We had a lovely time sitting in the blazing sunshine!
Another highlight, obviously Easter, but also Easter Sunday was my Mum's birthday and so we had a double chocolaty exciting day! Lunch out and a very in depth Easter egg hunt (one for each of the girls so they couldn't follow each other!)
Lots of chocolate later and no one was sick!!!

still here!

Yes I think I am. Thank you for asking! Yes I have had a bit of time off my blog! I am getting very close with my website! oooh its only been a year I hear you say! yes yes yes ok funny people, but I am a very busy Mum and chocolate making person!

I have to let you in to my newest treat of choice! With a Nod to Clare from Little Welsh Deli, who seems to make all my favorite and best non-chocolate treats at the moment! Macaroons.
So yes this is me, with Clare's amazing creations! No I didn't eat them all..... honest, it was a close run thing though!

The Postman brings me such lovely things!

Yesterday the postman dropped a Jiffy bag that I was not expecting through my letterbox....

I (being the person I am) checked the return address and found that this surprise was from my Godmother Chris! Oooh... not expecting this at all!

Obviously I found the scissors and cut the tape, rather than ripping my way in like most people would (we have my Mother to thank for this bit of tidiness!
can use it again now!)

this is what I was greeted with....A Bag! A Chocolate Bag!! A Yummy Chocolate Bag!!!!

With some of the Best chocolate quotes around on it!

Forget Love, I'd rather fall in Chocolate.

It's never too early or too late for Chocolate.

The Four Basic Food Groups, Milk Chocolate, White Chocolate,
Dark Chocolate and Chocolate Truffles!

Chocolate, Men, Coffee. Some things are better rich. (this one is quite funny for me!)

But this one is my favourite and best;

There is nothing better than Chocolate, Except a good friend with Chocolate!!!!

So thank you thank you thank you thank you Auntie Chris, I love love love it! xxx
