Firstly to my lovely mum who is in India and had absolutely no idea that it was actually today until we phoned her, secondly to Nanny Croman who has been busy with all her grandchildren and children phoning her all day and finally to every mum out there!
Mother’s day is such a special occasion, and I celebrated it today by just being a mum. It was nice to do not much other than spend time with the boys today.
Of course, chocolate was involved and we ate chocolate and played with chocolate and made a few delicacies together! It is just so much fun! I think that is one of the most amazing things about chocolate – it seems to appeal to children, young people, adults and the elderly alike. No matter what age, what gender – whenever I mention the word chocolate to people they smile
It must be the “feel good” factor that chocolate has – it is so memorable that hearing its name just makes you feel happy
Thanks to all who have come along to the Wigan Sweet Tooth Fair and also to the Wirral Farmers Market. Our next event is on Saturday 20th March at the 08 place – do come along as there will be a number of food stalls and demos throughout the day – I think we will demo our strawberry, champagne and chocolate soup again and one other recipe … hmmm truffles or something savoury? Can’t quite decide.
Talking of savoury chocolate, the Chocolate Lovers Club is on again on Thursday 25th March – we are taking bookings now. The Chicken Mole went down a treat last month, so looking for something to match that this month…. watch this space!

The title of the campaign was inspired by a quote from an independent gallery owner after the closure of their gallery. “If everyone who’d complimented our […]
