Festive fools

Well, it's another bank holiday. Which means when taking my lunch break, buying a newspaper was hard work, getting lunch in an open cafe harder, and everyone wants me to eat crappy milk chocolate bollocks. Thanksfully, my parents, knowing me well, sent in to work via my sister a Green & Blacks dark chocolate egg :-D

Oh, and I went to Somerfield last night and bought 4 bars of their white chocolate, which is absoletely great. If, like me, you were put off white chocolate for life by that Milky Bar Kid, but you like chocolate, do yourself a favour and try this stuff. Suitable for vegetarians but not vegans; I bought some Maya Gold to go alongside it anyway :-D

I like that my job means I work bank holidays and take the day off when I want it. I hate that it's pretty much impossible to get normal services in the pokey small town I work in (the place of my birth). I really need to look more at the Exeter jobs available...

Yay, Green & Blacks! I've restricted my self to Fairtrade Chocolate when I get tempted at work, now. The positive Fairtrade karma will hopefully balance the fat-bastard-chocolate-eater karma, and it's higher prices make me binge less often.

I'm muchly impressed, however, by the big slabs of FT dark chocolate going at the Co-Op for less than the same weight as Cadbury's sugar-fest.
