Much of a muchness

Things that make you go 'hmm'…

And now for something completely different….

If the last book was ‘classy’ to quote Justin at ‘Pushapixel‘ I’m not sure how you would describe this one. I don’t know why but I think of ‘The Great Gatsby’ and flappers doing the Charleston.



I don’t know what it is about the onset of autumn and the thought of winter, but I get the munchies. It’s almost as if my body is getting ready to hibernate and craves food. Unfortunately, it doesn’t crave healthy fruit and snacks it craves carbs – and chocolate. And unfortunately, I have a large supply of chocolate left over from Hallowe’en which is very hard to resist. Now that Number One son is a vegan, he won’t eat it so it’s down to me. Well, I can’t just throw it away – can I?

    I didn’t see the dogs on the cover at first. That’s an interesting print.

    Yes, you should eat the chocolate. Throwing away chocolate is a crime subject to fines and imprisonment. Well, in my house it is. I could never go vegan because it requires giving up chocolate. No way. :D

    Ha! Thanks for that! I can eat my chocolate with impunity now…

    My son has found a Fairtrade, non-dairy, organic yummy chocolate by a company called Green and Blacks which is very dark chocolate with orange flavouring. It’s called Maya Gold. I’m more of a white chocolate gal although milk chocolate does it for me as well…. :)

    I was given some champagne truffles for my birthday…delicious!

    I like it and my daughter would love the “pups” as she calls them. I’m going now to look at your “classy” one.

    It would be wrong not to eat the chocolate…it wants to be eaten….!

    (Drop by my blog for a little something for you.)

    the word fresh springs to mind for me….
    enjoy your chocolate Diane :)

  10. Diane November 12, 2007 at 12:54 pm

    Justin – you are welcome! I would say ‘fresh’ :-)

    Kelley – it is isn’t it? I enjoyed your blog – I will be back!

    SW – Glad you like it. I might do a childrens’ book….hmmm, now there’s a thought…

    DrowseyMonkey – I have indeed eaten the chocolate – well it was the weekend…thank you for the award – I saw it on KIm’s blog and lusted after it I will admit – it is very classy :-)

    Kim – just realised we had the same thoughts about the book – fresh it is :-)
    I did – it is now past tense chocolate and I can now be a good girl and eat healthily as the cupboard is bare of all treats. I wonder how long that will last…..

    Diane – a children’s book would be a neat idea. Also, thanks for the kind words you posted on my blog. :)

    My children have been gone from the nest for years and it is a time to discover what we are all about. :D

    Hugs, JJ

  14. Diane November 14, 2007 at 2:06 pm

    Thank you! You are very kind!

    My kids left the nest – and now one has come back! I don’ think he is ever going to leave home….
