that’s that then by Tracy Crisp | Jan 17, 2007 | Uncategorised | 16 comments all of the Christmas chocolates are gone 16 Comments elsewhere on January 17, 2007 at 9:04 pm I’m impressed you managed to hold out this long. My brother used to do amazing things with the lollies from his Xmas stocking, like rationing himself to one tic-tac a day. Reply blackbird on January 17, 2007 at 9:07 pm Middle pointed out the bowl of WHITE christmas chocolate yesterday: I take it THESE are no good? said he. Our resident detective. Reply redcap on January 17, 2007 at 9:23 pm I’m very impressed too! I think the Christmas chocolates here lasted until, oh, the 27th of December at least. Reply suse on January 17, 2007 at 10:06 pm Ours was gone by 4.37pm on the 25th. I deeply admire you. Reply Helen on January 18, 2007 at 7:33 am I still have some because I put it in a cupboard and forgot about it. Nerny nerny ner ner. The chocolates (Lindt balls) were liquid in the heat (held together by wrapping) so I have hidden them in the fridge. There is always the danger the kids might find them. Reply ThirdCat on January 18, 2007 at 9:43 am We’ve been away a lot, and also got some late ones last weekend. Also, I had quite a lot of them in hiding. Lindt balls are a bit heat sensitive, aren’t they? I can’t imagine why the spaminator keeps all your other comments and lets that rather rude one through. Reply Zoe on January 18, 2007 at 9:48 am Hey cat they have more choco at the shops. heh. Reply ThirdCat on January 18, 2007 at 10:20 am Just pop down and get me some, will you? Since apparently, you have nothing else to do. And if you could bring back some kind of vegetable that would be useful too since there seems to be nothing of that sort here, except bucket loads of tomatoes. Reply Pavlov's Cat on January 18, 2007 at 10:32 am ‘nothing of that sort here, except bucket loads of tomatoes.’ Oh, brag brag brag. I don’t suppose you have any suggestions about the prevention of Blossom End Rot?

I was slack and mine are only just flowering. I didn’t get any Christmas choc this year, perhaps everyone knows you don’t give chocolate to the partner of someone who is upwards of 150k. Very kind of them, sort of. I still have one candy cane gathering fluff in my handbag that I put there shortly before Christmas to offer to D as an incentive if needed. it wasn’t, apparently. Reply Ariel on January 18, 2007 at 8:26 pm We still have quite a few of F’s Christmas chocolates. They’re in the cupboard, hoping he forgets about them. When he, on occasion, remembers, I apportion some out for dessert. Last year we had to throw some of his chocs out. (Mine, on the other hand, I ate within the week …) Reply ThirdCat on January 18, 2007 at 8:54 pm Well, what do you know. The back fridge is still on and there was the tiniest bit of chocolate ice cream left. I think we had that blossom end rot last year. Or the year before. I think it’s do with calcium in the soil and possibly the amount of water the plants got. But the science of growing tomatoes is pretty minimal in this garden. We just plant lots of plants at a few different times between September and February and mostly it works out okay. Crit, you’ll have bragging rights at Easter, when you’re still eating yours and all of our plants are dead. ‘Last year we had to throw some of his chocs out.’ You didn’t eat them after he went to bed? Reply Mummy Crit on January 24, 2007 at 4:34 pm Bragging at Easter then, unless of course there’s been a frost by then in which case all we’ll have is pile of slimy disgustingness. Or unless they’ve all died of thirst while I’ve been in colder wetter places… Reply chris on February 1, 2007 at 7:03 pm I still have some Christmas chocolates left today, February no less, because someone gave me some for Christmas and left them in the work fridge. That I only found them today is a technicality – they had a Christmas card attached to them so they are Christmas chocolates. I wish I could feel virtuous. Reply ThirdCat on February 1, 2007 at 9:07 pm Hey Chris! Nice to meet you. What kind are they? Do you feel that you have to hand them around at work?
