One of the things my kids look forward to each year is receiving an Advent Calender from my mother in England. Now granted they are nearly 27 and 25, but Christmas just wouldn't be the same without the Cadbury's Advent Calender. They haven't arrived yet, but I am assured they are on their way.
Now one year my mother thought she would pay a bit more for the calender's and buy the mixed chocolate one. When dd started to open the windows out would pop these fruit and nut chocolates and the nut chocolates. She was horrified as none of us like currents, sultanas and raisins. She was even amazed when my mother told her that Cadbury's Fruit and Nut Chocolate was one of the best selling chocolate in Britain. As dd said she couldn't even give way those chocolates.
So now my mother just sticks with the plain Cadbury's chocolate. As I have told my mother, don't bother sending them, as it costs her more to mail them than it does to buy them, but she still insists and both my kids (the little stinkers) keep saying to her that Christmas wouldn't be the same without Nana sending over those Advent Calendars!!
Now the chocolates in these advent calendar's are so tiny it's crazy. However when I was over at Shirley's blog she had come up with a novel advent calender for a chocolate lover like myself. Pop over and have a look and you'll see why I thought it was just the best.
I spent a couple of hours on Tuesday morning catching up on people's blogs. I think I got most people visited; but if I missed you would you yell at me!!
So I have figured out a way of uploading photos onto my blog again. It's a bit of a pain, but not sure what else to do. I am loading them onto Photobucket and going from there.
So in celebration of the fact I have figured out how to do this, here is a photo of Molly. She has stinky ears again at the moment, so I am putting ear drops in her. Must say stinky ears are a regular occurrence with her and she is not a fan of having drops put in her ears!!
Her stomach is also not happy with all the scratching. I must remember to get some baby oil next time I am out to see if that will help.
