Breaking News!

As I type, I am eating Nutella on toast. (white toast, let's not get carried away).

I saw the jar in the cupboard and felt strangely drawn to it.

I removed the lid and took a tentative sniff with pregnancy nose*.

I DID NOT GAG!

I zealously whipped over to the toaster for the most daring meal of the last 7 weeks....

Let me remind you, people, that Nutella is definitely BROWN, not at all beige.


Could this be......could this be...I can hardly say it....could this be the return to my alma mater....?

CHOCOLATE?


* pregnancy nose - the ability to smell at 100 times normal strength all items within a 10 mile radius.

Cocoa in ANY FORM is good.

Back for more...already!
Is pregnancy bringing any attraction to specific smells; diesel i've heard of but wouldn't recommend.
The good lady here had pine cleaning fluid as a favourite ("so good i could drink it"). Unfortunately, bathroom cleaning has now slipped back down the pecking order of household chores...

ps The kids are 6 & 8 now but your estimate of 16 & 18 was close as some days we get early glimpses of how teenage company will be..."whatever Dad!"

Vernie - Through the power of blogs that go round the world (which is daft as you live just up the hill) I've read yours today also.
Would have left a comment but you don't allow "anonymous blogs" (how sensible). May have to "sign up here" later i think so i can add my bit about favourite presents...
Sorry Adele..is this blog hijack?

Flippin Nora you must have had a fit!!! So pleased you're back with the chocolate. Chris had to seal a bar of chocolate in an envelope at work and sign the seal so I wouldn't eat it. He doesn't know me at all! Like a dastardly envelope is going to get in the way of bar of galaxy!!! Foolish mortal.

p.s the chocolate is a prize at work he doesn't just randomly seal up all chocolate from me.

Adele, sorry this is blogging hijack again.. go Robbie... but you may enjoy it as well. Its like a chat room isn't is this blooging stuff? joining in the conversation whenever you log on.

Laura....

How funny, chochalate ( here after known as Choc as I can't officailly spell and there is no spell check here!) and envelope.....

It reminds me of Tom putting a Mars in the fride when I was at home. He would leave it there for about 2-3 weeks either because he was trying to teach us the virtues of self restraint and discipline or bizzarely he forgot about it as choc didn't actually control his very being !!!! no that can't be possible..

Of course the sad fact is, i often ate the choc and bought a new one ( a number of times..)and he never noticed... simular to gold fish dying and being replaced for kiddies....

Ahhhh choc ...mmmmmmm choc......ooohhh choc......

Oh, Adele, our dear dear Adele!

We are so pleased you like us again. Mrs. Chocolate was quite worried our friendship may have been marred for good! Thankfully, our black sheep cousin, Mr. Nutella, has proved himself useful and has welcomed you back into our fold. So pleased.

Do stay, and indulge.
Much licking,
Mr. and Mrs. Chocolate!

A mans lack of romance with the mighty chocolate is deeply odd. Love that Adeles blog is a chatroom.... Hi I'm laura I like chocolate, sleeping, walks on the beach seeking like minded male oh oh oh like money and boats and gold and diamonds.

Adele, I think I should be the first to intervene and tell you to "Get that hand out of that nutella jar, and type us a post!". Or not, whatever.
