I'm going to stop there, because I could do this for hours and hours, and I am supposed to be writing a novel.


  1. Thank goodness you use your powers for good, not evil (as far as I can tell).
    With a brain as fertile as yours, I shudder to think of the worlds you could conquer.

    1. 'Fertile' puts quite a positive spin on what happened here! But thanks anyway!

  2. That was even better than your last post :-)))))

    1. Thank you kindly! And I'm going to steal the way you did that emoticon. Here's a practice. :-)))))

  3. I wouldn't have time to be thinking of jokes, I'd be too busy stuffing myself with the chocolates.

    1. Well, first I did one, and then the other. You can guess which came first.

  4. Haha! You're not off sick by any chance are you? Great japes...

    1. Cabin fever is driving me a little crazy, as you can tell!

  5. What do you call Fran's post about those scrumptious chocolates when you don't have a box of your own ?
    Notfairero Rocher

  6. You can have another box after you've finished your novel . In fact , you can go all Barbara Cartland and have two ...

    1. Ooh, thanks for the permission. I'll let you know (in 2025 when I've finished the novel) when I'm eating them.

  7. .. thanks for the chuckles Fran..... I love these hazelnut chocolates too...
    Have a great day.. hugs... Barb xxxx

    1. I was going to say 'What's there not to like about hazelnut chocolates?' but in fact my husband doesn't like them. ALIEN!!

  8. Happy Birthday a bit late! And how delightful to see you still inhabit Blogland. Glancing down my reading list a few moments ago, it seems as though there has been a huge exodus over the past few years...Now, there's a good question for you to ponder. Where do old bloggers go?!
    Thinks...are they ground up to provide the nutty bits in your chocs? ♥

    1. Hi Jinksy! Yes, still here, eight or so years later, turning out blog posts about once a week, maybe twice in school holidays. Every time I write one, I think I'll never have another idea again. And then.... But I guess that's the writer's permanent state, isn't it? Thanks for your comment, although I'll view nutty chocolates in a different light now ...
