CharlieAlphaKiloEcho Thu 10-Oct-13 20:29:27

So I'm not BU Belugagrad?

CharlieAlphaKiloEcho Thu 10-Oct-13 20:31:12

I vowed to start getting christmas food one thing a week.

Why on earth did I start with the chocolates?

they've only been here 2 hours

FriskyHenderson Thu 10-Oct-13 20:37:19

I'm eating them from now until Christmas. Extends the girth festive season, doesn't it grin

Belugagrad Thu 10-Oct-13 20:44:10

Ha ha, I had to read this thread as I am currently tucking into a chocolate orange!! They were on offer so got 3 for DH and DCs stockings, and oh dear, a spare one....yum!

4 tins. In the boot of my car for safe keeping, safe keeping. My fat arse.

sparkle101 Thu 10-Oct-13 20:51:21

Already started on the roses I bought for my staff. Best go back to the shops.

bearleftmonkeyright Thu 10-Oct-13 20:54:18

<spoken through loud hailer> put the chocolates down and move away from the area.

CharlieAlphaKiloEcho Thu 10-Oct-13 20:55:17

Well apparently the cat is my new dietician and sensed my chocolate plan.

He has parked himself firmly on my lap.

I can't kick him off. I had him 'fixed' on Tuesday and he has only just forgiven me.

But there is a tin of Heros with my name on.... mini toblerone....yum!

MusicalEndorphins Thu 10-Oct-13 21:22:00

YANU! I am sure they will be stale by then, perhaps even poisonous! Better eat them immediately.

foslady Thu 10-Oct-13 22:18:28

Co op's £1 a box liqueurs are lovely - allegedly, not that I'd know, of course not, I haven't bought and eaten a box.......or two........

WorraLiberty Thu 10-Oct-13 22:22:22

Just save them for Christmas and that way they'll seem more like a christmassy treat.

Otherwise you'll be bored of eating Christmas food before December even starts.

Amy106 Thu 10-Oct-13 22:26:17

Life is short.
Why wait?
Munch away, I say and enjoy! smile

agendabender Thu 10-Oct-13 22:30:00

already done it
bangs gavel

CoconutRing Thu 10-Oct-13 22:30:24

I always eat a least one tin a week of Celebrations or Roses before the festive season.
I'm a firm believer in quality control.

OctopusWrangler Thu 10-Oct-13 22:40:41

I uave hallowe'en chocolates taunting me butni am remaining strong!

also has a cat sprawled on her knee

Mouserama Fri 11-Oct-13 10:40:00

This is the reason I don't buy christmas chocolates until December. Because I keep having to re-buy them again and again because I have no willpower. None.

SmiteYouWithThunderbolts Fri 11-Oct-13 10:50:49

I definitely didn't buy a tin of Roses yesterday and start eating them on the way home. blush

Oldraver Fri 11-Oct-13 12:44:24

No, you need to audition all things meant for Christmas just incase they turn out to be crap

girlywhirly Fri 11-Oct-13 13:11:30

Good point, Oldraver.

Also there is that old MN tradition of wrapping Christmas presents while listening to festive music, eating the Christmas chocs for energy to keep you going.

Totesamazeballs Fri 11-Oct-13 13:20:33

I do it every year. I buy chocolates for gifts, hide them under the bed and vow not to go within 2 metres of them and then scoff them all in a moment of weakness. Sigh. Every damn year.

Featherbag Fri 11-Oct-13 13:31:18

It all needs testing surely? You wouldn't want to risk giving your family chocolate that turns out to be crap at Christmas would you?
