It’s bad enough that it’s taken me a week to post this picture of thick, gloopy, Spanish hot chocolate. It’s worse that it took me almost a year to make it. It feels like it’s time to start doing/eating/drinking the good things and stop waiting for “someday” or the right day or any other kind […]
Look what I found when I got to work this morning! A very posh looking bag, containing.. .. even posher looking chocolates! It’s the thanks for the prizes I made and donated to a competition in the summer. There’s all kinds if things in there I’d never buy for myself – I’m looking forward to […]
You can fill it with icecream – and it’s nobody’s business but your own 🙂 A couple of years ago, the last tenant bought a fridge freezer unit to fit the kitchen, and because it’s a weird size, she left it here when she left. If it was officially made part of the flat’s inventory, […]
Some people know exactly what they want, what they like. When they have to choose something, anything, they make their choices based on pre-decided ideas.
I am not that person (and this post isn’t really about icecream).
I flew home* on Saturday. I landed, and was presented with two of my favourite things: Chocolate (which they handed out on the plane as we got off) and Snow (which you can barely see in my blurry photo). Isn’t that awesome? It was even more awesome the next day. Tthere was enough to make […]
This doesn’t look like much, until you realise that the plate is about 40 cm long…… Three layers of thick chocolate cream, and a cheesecake-style base. Plus chocolate ice cream and a strawberry. And the most strawberryesque sauce ever. I have never been so full!
Because if you’re going to make a chocolate teapot in the middle of the night, you might as well make a milk jug to keep it company… (And also because I am more likely to be asked to make a chocolate teapot than to walk even the first mile…)
People must love Toblerone 🙂 I’ve had more views this morning than I usually get in a day, and it’s not even 8am yet! 🙂
Awesome stuff. *** DB’s folks came back from their holiday this week*. They are firm believers in bringing back presents. I am apparently difficult to buy I’ve-been-on-holiday presents for. I don’t drink (much), smoke or wear perfume (much). Last time, I got a fridge magnet with very small photos of the island on – like […]
I saw this in a vending machine yesterday and thought it had potential, even though I didn’t want to buy the one, rather specialised book they were offering (“The destruction of the town library in Leipzig in 2003”).
(I was just looking though my posts and found a draft version of Wednesday’s post. I thought it was competely gone, but apparently not. Here it is.) I don’t know why I give either as much power as I do. Yesterday wasn’t a particularly spectacular day. As well as losing my halo, I also lost […]
Okay. I add ‘and of Mozilla’s moodswings’ to that. My post was pretty much finished and now it’s gone. The gist of it was that I am easily swayable by external factors: things, situations, people…and chocolate. That and the fact that I spend too much time and energy trying to placate people who make life […]
