Week 15 #Project365 – 2015

I’ve had a lovely family week – seeing both grandsons smiling and laughing is enough to light up anyone’s day!

Easter Sunday – Son, DIL and grandsons came for Easter lunch. We had a lovely time together but it was tinged with a little sadness when DIL told us that her grandfather had passed away. She was feeling rather guilty for not going up to Blackpool with her folks for the funeral. There’s not much you say to ease the sadness.

Monday – We were going to go out for a drive but decided to have a nice relaxing day at home, tidying the garden and enjoying the sunshine.

Tuesday – With the demise of Orange Wednesday we’ve not been to the cinema for over a month. Tuesdays may be our new day as it’s cheaper. We are both fans of the Fast and Furious franchise so went to see the 7th installment. This time round they have Jason Statham after them to avenge his brothers death. I would have loved to have seen the production notes that said Statham was to square up to Dwayne Johnson!! Much of the film is far fetched and some parts defy physics but as long as you can park your brain and just watch it as good action entertainment you can’t go far wrong.
As you may know Paul Walker died whilst the film was still being made. They have done a great job of keeping his part going using body doubles and CGI and the ending is a really poignant goodbye to him.

Wednesday – Work day which was brightened up by the arrival of my Jord watch!

Thursday – Usual shopping day.

Friday – Work day -as we handle cash the office is security controlled and we have control over who enters the office. I pushed back in my chair to press the button to let someone in and I fell off my chair and bashed my arm on our CCTV cabinet. Top of my arm is pretty sore and a bruise is developing but what’s worse is that it was all captured on camera! There are a few people going to have a good laugh.

Saturday – early phone call from son asking if we would like to take Ashley for the day. Well we’re not going to say no! A bit of colouring and drawing first, then some time on my tablet. I never fail to be impressed with him on apps, we have one with a subgame of mazes and he guides the ball around and you can see that he’s working out where to go rather than just guessing.  He loves the CBBC app and The Furchester Hotel is his favourite on that one. BUT is absolute favourite is Angry Birds!
At lunchtime we popped down to see his Great Granny Mo and a visit to the park on the way back. Then it was back home to catch up with his Mummy, Daddy and brother.

Here’s a selection from the week and some extras from our time in the park.

REVIEW: Hotel Chocolat Easter Goodies

I was recently approached by Hotel Chocolat to try an item from this years Easter lines. Well I wasn’t going to refuse was I?  I chose to try the Easter Pick Me Up .

The packaging

Inside the box are 6 bunnies – lovely thick creamy white chocolate with an intense praline filling.  These were Hubby’s favourite.

Next up 6 Egglets – thick milk chocolate filled with a liquid Salted Caramel. I’m not keen on salted caramel but this one is really very subtle.

Lastly 4 Raspberry Zinger Egglets –  Thick vanilla seed speckled  pink chocolate with a sharp/sweet raspberry filling.  I can only describe these as LUSH!! I enjoyed nibbling the chocolate and licking out the filling taking my time over them!!  Can you tell that these were MY favourite??!

Inside the box

The Easter Pick Me Up is a good choice if you want something a little more decadent to share with the family. Bunnies for the children, Egglets for older children and the Zingers for the grown ups.  It costs £13 – good value for a treat to share.

Why not pop over and browse the Hotel Chocolat Easter Range. Great selection and you’ll be sure to find something for everyone.

 

Week 13 #Project365 – 2014

Week 13 already – a quarter done! I’m still finding it hard going but hopefully now that spring has sprung there will be more to see.

There’s not much to share this week. I’ve done a review for Hotel Chocolate which involved eating chocolate… it’s a hard life!!  I’ll be writing up the review tomorrow (Sunday) so please watch out for it. I’ve not done many reviews so any feedback will be useful. 🙂

Orange Wednesday this week was Captain America 2. Good film with a good story and very well paced with plenty of action and some good fun in there too.

We were supposed to be having Ashley today but his Daddy was feeling unwell and had to ring in sick so he would be up and about to look after him. We won’t see him now until Monday.

Molly the cat usually hangs around the house all day so it was good to see her keeping warm on a sunlit wall in the garden.

Lovely warm day today and the washing we pegged out at 10am is all dry and ready to come in at 3pm!
