A treat to cheer me up just arrived

The delicious Mr Daniel Craig, just arrived on my doorstep. Ok, so it’s the Skyfall DVD but a girl can dream, can’t she ?? Bar of choccie in fridge. All set for an afternoon of yumminess !!

Mrs H, lt’s a cold dreary day here so a bar of chocolate and a exciting film sounds the answer - hope you enjoy.

l am going to light my wood-burner then pop to Aldi’s for a bar of hazlenut or almond chocolate. l haven’t got a Bond movie to watch -but l have two dvd’s that l have yet to see. Gran Torino -Clint Eastwood and Saving Grace - -Brenda Blethyn [about a lady who is growing cannabis big time]

My dogs have chewed up a large cardboard carton and a log - so this l can use for ‘kindling’ Well trained aren’t they!! lf they find my gloves - they always chew up the right hand one - so l am left with lots of left hand gloves. Well they won’t be eating any of my chocolate - thats too good to share.

Have a lovely afternoon

Hi Is Saving Grace based on a true story by any chance ?

Hi, l will have a look and see - l expect there is a lot of truth in it anyway. Love Brenda Blethyn - especially in Little Voice - and the film whose title l have forgotten - about the lady who gave up her baby for adoption and years later she contacts her mother - and the daughter turns out to be ‘dark-skinned’ [am l allowed to say that] and all ends up happy ever after.

Please do…I ask because, a wonderful old lady near us, in Northumberland, made the national news a few years ago, when it was discovered that she was growing cannabis and then baking cakes etc with it and distributing them to all her elderly friends, who couldn’t understand why they suddenly felt very invigorated !!

H, l do remember her - she was featured in the Pathways magazine from MSRC- she was also making it into chocolate bars and distributing it to fellow ‘sufferers’ to help with pain etc. Non profit making venture. The local police did turn a ‘blind eye’ to it - then when a new Chief lnspector joined the local force he clamped down on her activities and actually had her arrested and charged.

That’s the one…and suddenly the entire community aged overnight and GP’s were busier than they had been for months !!

Spoiler alert (read on at your peril)…

Dear old Daniel has never been the same for me since someone pointed out that he looks like the PE master in a Midlands comprehensive.

Ahem…what about me…you could’ve ruined my day…but failed !!! I am watching the deliciousness and don’t, even vaguely see anything that reminds me of any of my teachers !! Phew !!

And I’d thought it was going to be either made of chocolate, or something from Figleaves! :wink:

Oooh…Mr Craig covered in chocolate…minus the fig leaves though…it’s my birthday soon…can anyone arrange it ?? Puuuuurrrrrrlllleeaase.

So glad, Mrs H, that the delicious Daniel bears no resemblance to any of your teachers… life could not be so cruel.

My faith in the universe is restored in spite of Alison’s attempt to derail it

Chocolate dipped Daniel… Ohhhhhh, yummmmmmmmyyyyyyyyy

I’ll see what I can do, Mrs H but don’t complain if he comes pre-licked

[/quote] Heehee and there was little old me enjoying the view…shame on you Aluson !!!

Dearie me, cold showers all round, ladies. Melted chocolate is all very well, but someone has to do the laundry, or am I mistaken? You people haven’t a practical thought in your heads.

Daniel does look a bit like my old hockey mistress, come to think of it.
