The other week I read that one of the simple pleasures in life is ‘finding money down the back of the sofa’ This rarely seems to happen in our house. We have tight budgets, not loose change!
However, last week, Bob decided to deal with the box of tinned food in the garage. It was stuff leftover from Christmas and had come back from Cornerstones, but not been properly sorted and put into the correct places on the shelf. And in the bottom of the box was …
…a small bag of chocolate coins. I meant to put these in the stockings for Christmas morning, but then mislaid them. It is not best quality dark chocolate** – but it will be fun to serve one in the saucer with a cup of coffee, or as a garnish on top of dessert such as a cheapo Approved Foods Butterscotch Whip
A little Christmas treat in February – a simple pleasure indeed!
I’ve heard that in some hotels, they leave a chocolate on the pillow for guests. Not sure I like that idea – what if it melts on the pillowcase? or you don’t find it until you climb into bed ? [and then you’d have to get out again to clean your teeth a second time] Are they the same hotels as the ones which do origami stuff with the end of the loo roll
**it is Lidl budget stuff- the label says best before September 2014 – however I don't plan to keep this coinage for the 2013 Xmas Stockings. That would be a little too frugal, even for me.
