Largely because a parcel was waiting for me at home.
Being a new blogger I was looking over the links to other blogs in the UK when I came across Laura's blog: http://www.keepinghealthygettingstylish.com/
She is an established blogger who writes a wonderful blog all about healthy living, exercise and posts some lovely looking food.
A few months ago she was arranging a secret santa for bloggers in the UK which I thought seemed like a great idea to participate in. My gift was to go to Suzi: http://suziknight.blogspot.com/2011/12/secret-santa.html
I was delighted to see that my colourful gift had come from a blog I have been reading for the last few months, Tam who blogs over at http://www.saladandsequins.com/
I loved the wrapping on the box, it was really cute! Much better than boring brown paper.
I loved the gifts inside even more.
There was a lovely letter from Tam and a Festive Cheer candle which smells delicious and spicy - Gingerbread and orange, yum. Along side were some Cleo's peanut butter cups.
Now I've had the usual American Reece's version and thought they were a little wah, they also pale in comparison to Cleo's.
They were wonderful, fudgy chocolate with a hit of peanut butter inside.
Did I eat one right away? You betcha.
Did I manage to hold off eating the other..... only just. That baby was polished off on Sunday as a treat.
I'd recommend them if you can find them, they are vegan and dairy free and utterly delicious.
The candle I am planning on burning tonight as we've been away over the weekend.
Looks good enough to eat.........
Thank you Laura and many thanks to Tam. The presents were perfect :)
