SCOFFING THE CHOCS

You probably already guessed what was going on here ... and you'd be right. It was one of those days when only chocolate will do, except that we didn't have any. Then himself remembered the box he'd won on the tombola, which were milk not plain, so not his kind of thing at all. Needless to say I did a pretty good job of polishing them off (therapeutically necessary) and for some bizarre reason kept all the little labels off their wrappings. And that's what led to this page, made up of paper scraps onto which said labels could be stuck. I really like cutting up paper to make borders and so on, which also had the double advantages of a) being ecologically sound and b) using up some of the scraps I tend to shove into boxes rather than waste them.
Anyway, this turned into a sort of confessional about the chocolate, which may or may not have also been therapeutic. I didn't actually feel guilty about it even if I should have! So please tell me you do this too, or I shall begin to question my sanity. If God hadn't meant us to eat chocolate in desperate handfuls when the going gets tough, well she shouldn't have invented it. Right?

Mmmm....I've had a torrid 3 days and can tell you I could not get my hands on any dark and plain so had to resort to eating a bag of Haribo goldbears......please bear in mind (sorry no pun intended) that I bought these for my DH and he died 12 months ago!!! Now that's desperation!!! HOL

The thing with chocolate boxes is that you have to even up as you go along PLUS they make the boxes really hard to close again! Love the page BTW!

Nodding in agreement here - if chocolate therapy is sinful, She has a lot to answer for. Especially if accompanied by the equally necessary PS! Love the expression on that little face ...

Just to say that it was lovely to meet you yesterday at AFTH and that as a novice I have enjoyed looking at your blog and will take inspiration from it.
