4 February 2013
I have to confess that I am only now close to finishing the wave of Christmas-generated chocolates that came my way in 2012. Hah! I say 'my', but in fact I have been making a heroic effort to eat anything chocolate-based in the house, regardless of ownership. I have scoured boxes and tins and cupboards, and now have only a final little net bag of gold coins to deal with, left until last because separating the foil from the chocolate is such a fiddly business. I must tackle them soon. Lent is, after all, a scant week away.
