I adored this movie as a child. I watched it over and over. My gran used to always buy me a big galaxy bar for Christmas and I used to devour it, feeling like I was one of the kids from the movie.
I adored the book too. Actually I adored all of Roald Dhal’s childrens books (except James and the giant peach, never a fan of that one). I regularly had one book or another borrowed from the library, then Nestle did a wonderful thing, a free Roald Dahl book with every cereal box! It was a dream come true.
My OH is not a big reader per se but when I asked him who his favourite author was and you guessed it, he replied Roald Dhal (he’s actually read one of his adult novels too).
So when I was wandering around Largs last week, I popped into a traditional sweet shop and these little bars beamed back at me. Hubby was delighted when presented with the little treat.
I know, I know there’s always one that ruins the fun for everyone but after seeing a poor puppy have its stomach pumped after breaking into an easter egg stash (on social media, not my puppy). I thought I’d put this together to remind others. I hadn’t realised hot cross buns were that dangerous too, so it’s always worth being careful.
I hope you all have a wonderful EASTER and for those of us (humans and four-legged friends alike).
Remember, remember the… oh wait that has already happened….
Lately time seems to be against me, I am sure most people fail the same, squeezing everything in seems to be impossibly hard and an endless struggle. The frustrating thing is I always intend to do spend the time writing. I see a lot of inspiring things that I think “I will go home and write about” but then I sit at the computer and time seems to fly with no real reason or the things I was so inspired by no longer seem to fit. I’m not sure what the fix for this is (if there is one) I cannot write in the car or at work.
The only solution I have found so far is chocolate. Yep – finally an article that says chocolate is good for you, granted MARS was involved but at this moment in time I’ll take all the help I can get. If chocolate can improve my memory, it may just remind me what I wanted to write and why by the time I sit down to the computer.
