Easter isn’t just about chocolate…

Howkapow Easter Selection


I have chocolate on my mind… (it’s that time of year again).
I try to distract myself by thinking about spring lambs, and chicks and bunnies…. but my mind just innocently wanders back to chocolate when I’m not looking.

And wherever I go, I see chocolate.

It’s not just me, right?

We have a fabulous chocolate themed Stuart Gardiner tea towel which has proven to be a useful tool for filling my brain with chocolate factoids, rather than filling my belly with chocolate bars…

And I’d like to share some of my favourite newly acquired chocolate wisdom with you all….
