What a treat!

The best part of this post comes at the end, so keep reading...

I am hideously late with this blog post, hideously late.  The only apology that I can make is that due to the nasty bout of flu I had over Christmas my chocolate-eating went way off. I'm pleased to report that it has now arrived back with a vengeance (I'm rebuilding my tolerance up in time for Easter...)

Anyhow just before Christmas I commented on this post over at Rosie Scribble and shortly after an email arrived from my fairy godmother. Okay, I may be stretching the truth a little. It wasn't from a plumpcious lady in a tutu waving a sparkly wand, it was from Appliances Online. (Although who I am to judge if that's how they choose to spend their Saturday nights.)

Hurrah! They wanted to send me a gift and a chocolatey one at that and where better to send me something from than my very favourite Hotel Chocolat.  

I was able to make a choice so I chose two products that I have looked at longingly every Christmas in their festive selection but I have never been quite able to justify splurging on them for myself.  The Festive Dipping Adventure and some of the Liquid Hot Chocolate - gingerbread flavour.  Both incredibly luxurious and decadent.  

Thank you Appliances Online - they were just what I needed as a pick me up after having a pretty horrid Christmas!

And here is the good bit if you leave a comment below you might well get a treat of your own! I hope the fairy godmother is looking out for you right now!

I've just remembered I still have some of that hot chocolate left and it's perishing today so I'm off to make a rather large mugful!

love & kisses
