Christmas 2015

Post Slideshow Image?>

Every year I make boxes of sweets as presents, every year I say never again. This year is no exception. I have a full time job besides this website and was working right up until Christmas, I attended two office parties that week and the other nights was up to 2am making fudge and boxes and cutting ribbons out of an old bedsheet. Never again, seriously.

We also have an annual tradition whereby I help my niece Poppy make a box of Christmas chocs for her mum.  I give her a blank box, some chocolates and the tools by which to decorate them, the rest is up to her and this year she truly out did herself.  Here is Poppy’s offering.
