Today's post seems to be all about biscuits and sweets. What can I say. It's nearly Christmas.
We went to visit Tom's sister this afternoon. He used to go and see her every Christmas but obviously that's not going to happen this year, so we went instead. We took her a box of chocolate biscuits and her Christmas card and spent a couple of hours with her. She's very easy company, mainly because she doesn't stop talking, so you're never scrambling around for something to say. Bless her.
My dates are long gone and I'm now working my way through the Turkish Delight. I put the scales in the wardrobe this morning and shoved them right to the back until the New Year!
I'll have a couple of pieces tonight while watching 'Back In Time For Christmas'. Did anybody see it? Last night the family had a 1940's, 50's and 60's Christmas Day and tonight they'll be starting with the 70's. One of the presents given to the boy was a 'junior smoking set', which was all smoking related things made from chocolate, probably similar to the one below. I don't remember smoking anything chocolate when I was little but I did get through a few packets of sweet cigarettes with red on the end. As I've never smoked it mustn't have done me any harm.
I bought a box of Terry's Segsations today. It was a mistake, I thought they were the original chocolates but Mark didn't seem to mind judging by these empty wrappers. This is the result of not hiding them straight away. I also bought a box of celebrations but they are definitely going under lock and key until next week.
I've tasked Amy and Thomas with putting on a 10 minute 'show' for us on Christmas Eve and they are now in the other room laughing and giggling about what they're going to do. I can hear Thomas getting giddier by the minute. Considering the age difference they get on really well, helped by the fact that Amy is always up for a laugh and willing to join in, even at nearly 16 years old.
Yesterday's answers were 'split personality' and 'a cold'. To be honest I'm not convinced about the answer to today's riddle about the peanut butter. I'd never come up with it unless I googled.
I might just buy a few jars and give it a go though. Good Luck!
