Cancel Those Chocolate Eggs

Right now I could go a glass of good red wine or three, but cancel that too 🙁 I’ve just had a crappy phone call to top off a pretty blah week. I have gestational diabetes. Just fricking fabulous!

Sorry. I know it’s not the end of the world, but it’s just one more thing to add to my list of ‘why-I-wish-this-pregnancy-was-over-already’. And three weeks before the annual chocolate-orgy that is Easter… that’s just cruel and unusual punishment, wouldn’t you say?!

…And Chocolate

Well, according to my admin panel, anyway. I sure as heck am not going back to count :giggle:

I was going to celebrate the occasion with some stitching porn. My SB&B order arrived, yee-hah! But I forgot to get photos while we still had light, so that will have to wait for later. Or perhaps I’ll wait for my Silkweaver and Country Stitch orders (Oh yes, I have burned that wagon to the ground, that’s for sure) to arrive, and take a photo of the whole lot together. Yummy, yummy stash!

So I thought I would treat you to my personal rant for the day. Peppermint chocolate eggs. Or rather, the lack thereof.

Am I the only person here who has an invisible “And Chocolate” on the bottom of every shopping list I write? Please tell me I’m not alone, or I’ll weep! Anyway, on tonight’s supermarket excursion, I was meandering past the Easter eggs, and my “And Chocolate” magically appeared. Just like that! I’ve got over my shock at seeing Easter eggs in the stores by, what was it – January 4th, or thereabouts?! So I thought I’d have a little look-see.

No Peppermint Filled Eggs!


Last Easter, no peppermint eggs. I was hoping it was just a glitch… a little oversight which would be hastily corrected. But no. I am so sad. I didn’t buy any eggs… in protest. Or something. I just had a little grumble and went and picked up a standard bar o’ chocolate instead. Grumble grumble.

If there are (preferably Cadbury) peppermint eggs hiding out in any other corner of Australia, could someone let me know? I’ll trade stash 😉 (got plenty of that coming my way)!
