Jo and I give chocolate advent calendars to the kids every December from the shop, usually Lindt. But this year we decided to get them something that they would realise wasn't a leftover/overstock from the shop, but a thoughtful gift. So we ordered them from Hotel Chocolat.
Anyway there was one Montezuma Organic Chocolate Advent Calendar left over in the shop which Jo and I reluctantly (!) agreed to share. Now Sunday breakfast is a big meal for us and we never read at table anyway. It was my turn for an Advent Chocolate! A perfect start to a fine, sunny, crunchy, cold December Sunday. No spectacles at table which means I can't see what the day is on the calendar! "Is that today's?" "No Daddy...give it here". They both disappear: - my chocolate-loving daughter and my Organic Chocolate Advent Calendar! Fortunately, she returns with a similar number of windows open as when they left. But now, there are big numbers on the calendar! Thank you!
Chocolate Advent Calendar producers please note.
