I buy chocolate that I don't like! (there is some, lol)

A chocolate orange definitely wouldn't last here!

Equally guilty.

The current tally is two Chocolate Oranges, Thorntons Mint Selection and two bottles of wine.

If I buy any chocolate gifts I send them up to my dad's or I end up eating them and having to replace them. Buying some for me at the same time doesn't work either smile.

I bought some lidl Christmas fudge for school hamper raffle donation and sort of bought an extra box to try before I gave it to anyone as a gift. I ate it all! So ashamed. It wasn't actually even as nice as I heard...

Chocolate usually lasts here and boozes doesn't. This year I am pregnant so it is the opposite everyone who normally gets chocolate is getting booze!

I have been really good, because all the chocolates are out of reach and all the alcohol I have taped up so I can't grab it. I am that bad.

You are SO much like one of my best friends.....she cannot for the life of her resist eating the chocolate she buys in for presents.

She lives in horror of me......I still have my two Easter eggs waitning to be eaten, on a day I have a chocolate need. I have a stash of chocolate put by for Christmas and it is not tempting me at all.

I have had to keep it secret from my family......if DH discovered it he too would scoff the lot!
