You Should

TRY THIS . . . 

*Using chocolate wrappers as book marks (I got this idea from my new book).  The fun part is you get to eat the chocolate while reading and mark your spot with a golden ticket of sorts.
*In case you are wondering what type of chocolate, YOU SHOULD TRY (and this is hard to answer as there are so many fabulous sweet treats) Dove’s new Dark Chocolate Cranberry Almond Bar.  It comes in three separate little golden wrappers and is dark chocolate perfection with a twist.
*And I always think a good book should be accompanied by a cup of tea, which will in turn make your chocolate even better.  If you haven’t YOU SHOULD TRY Starbucks new Black Tea Latte.  I very picky about my tea and I have to say that this is the closest thing I have had to proper English tea (with milk) other than what I make at home myself.

    Oh Trina this has brought back great memories. Encouraged by my gorgeous Mother, we did this as kids with our Easter Egg wrappers. So @ 53 when revisiting my favourite childhood books, opening up certain pages I get the additional bonus of a beautiful piece of colouful foil resting on the page.

    Oooh, have you tried the Lindt dark chocolate with chilli. Yummo. And, yes, how hard is it to get a good cup of tea outside of the ones you make at home. I’ll make you a pot of tea anytime you come by my house. You can choose the cup AND the pot. Good metal pot with copper base. Heated first, turned three times one way and three times the other. You’ll love it.

    This sounds truly fabulous Trina! Unfortunately in Australia it’s not great weather for tea and chocolate (ok, well maybe chocolate) but it is a great time to buy a season pass to the town pool. I think I’ll be taking my kidlets three swimming this weekend.

    Happy weekend lovely. xx
