First Christmas card and chocs


My first Christmas card arrived at the office this morning, together with a box of Lindt chocolates. They were sent by one of the artists I commissioned to illustrate a book this year.

The chocolates – having been posted from the Northern Territory down here to New South Wales in the heat of an Aussie Spring – were probably better in the concept than the execution (had to decant them into the fridge immediately to limit the damage) but its a jolly kind thought. 🙂

  1. One of the wonderful things about great big blocks of chocolate instead of those truffle things that do indeed taste so wonderful that one can’t really say anything even remotely negative about them is that big blocks of chocolate travel very well. Even if they melt, they reform into a big block. Besides melted chocolate is mmm… well… still chocolate.

    I want desert and there’s no chocolate in the house! Curses. My sweetie is stopping by the grocery store on the way home from work. Maybe she’ll buy some.

    Yes, chocolate, melted or not, is always a good thing.

    Ah yes, I once survived a week in the Nepalese Himalayas on pretty much nothing but chocolate Minstrels: they melted every day into mush and then re-froze every night into an amorphous but rock solid block… nice!

    Hope you got your supply BGG!

  5. We made chocolate chip cookies.
