Sometimes all you need is a little taste of chocolate to put the world to rights isn't it?! But if it's just before you eat your evening meal it's not the best idea to be chomping on a large bar of Dairy Milk. But over the last few night I have found the solution - hot chocolate!

I have been experimenting with the Options hot chocolate sachets and have found them to be quite convenient. Normally I buy a jar of hot chocolate and then forget all about it, but the sachets are quite perfect really.

White Chocolate
This was the first one that I tried. When I made it, it had the consistency of watery milk - not very appealing. The taste wasn't unlike white chocolate, but didn't have the smoothness or the same sweetness. I drank most of the cup, but poured the rest away. I probably wouldn't buy this one again.

Mint Madness

This one was much nicer. It tasted like Mint KitKats (gorgeous) and left a refreshing aftertaste. Sometimes when you drink hot chocolate you feel like you need a cold drink to refresh your mouth, but I didn't feel like this was necessary with this one. Would buy again.

Outrageous Orange

I am drinking this one as I type. It tastes like orange KitKats (also yum!) or Terry's Cholcolate Orange. Another good one!


Have been playing around on iGoogle and have added a cool upload thing to Blogger - just seeing if it is working now! Maybe it will make me write stuff more often! :-)



Bleurgh... have got a headache... probably the result of too many screaming children all day long at school. So I thought this pretty pic would cheer me up!

Have been feeling quite creative over the last week or two. Feel inspired to take lots of photos, do lots of writing and stick lots of pictures into my notebooks. It keeps me happy!

Went out in Liverpool on Saturday night and saw one of the new works of art in the street - the pretty twinkling spider.

It's part of the art on show for the MADE UP Exhibition for the Liverpool Biennial Festival. Many of the pieces of art look really cool - I will certainly have to go and see some of them!


A few years ago I tried Bookcrossing though didn't really have a massive amount of success, in spite of putting a couple of books out there for other people to read. So it was with interest that I stumbled across Postcrossing. The idea is that you are randomly given the address of somebody, somewhere in the world and you send them a postcard. They then register the postcard and you then reach the top of the list to receive a card yourself - all very exciting.

I was despairing a little, wondering what kind of postcards I could send. I decided to get some of my own art work printed at Moo and I also got some little Moo Cards too which are just the coolest things! I have now written cards to France, Germany, Finland, USA and China. Hopefully it won't be too long before I receive some myself and will be able to send some more!
