Sugar Rush

There has been far too much sugar around here this weekend. 
Yesterday Katie was 12.
There was a chocolate cake with chocolates.
There was a jigsaw showing sweets and chocolates from the 80s .
And there were; two giant bars of Cadbury Dairy milk, a large Aero bar, a Toblerone, a huge bar of Galaxy, a box of Maltesers, a tube of Rolos , a big bag of chocolate buttons, and that was just for starters.

And today is Mothering Sunday which means just one thing; chocolate for breakfast.

Katie and I will be spending the rest of the weekend lying down.


  1. Happy birthday Katie
    and Happy Mothering Sunday to you

  2. Happy Mother's Day!

  3. Happy Mother's Day Sue, and Happy Birthday Katie. Girls deserve chocolate on their special days.

    I feel your pain ... youngest daughter has bought me a pile of Green and Black's bars and eldest daughter made a chocolate shortbread cake. (The two boys on the other hand are all but comatose having spent last night celebrating St. Patrick's Day and the Welsh Rugby Grand slam with rather too much Guinness!)

  7. My face is breaking out and I am experiencing a violent mood swing, just from looking at these photos. Better go and have a lie-down myself.

    (Happy Mothering Sunday.)

  8. Happy birthday Katie! That jigsaw is just fab!

  9. Happy Birthday Katie - enjoy your choc fest!

  10. Happy Birthday Katie! Happy Mothering Sunday Sue! I hope you are not going to be sick after all that chocolate.

    I was treated to salmon quiche and coleslaw, much better for me.

    Happy Chocolate-day!

  12. Happy Mothers day! Where did you get the puzzle? My daughter loves doing puzzles, she is nearly 5, and anything under 500 piece is not a challenge!

    1. Amazon. It's this one - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B006HENZPU/ref=oh_o01_s00_i00_details

    2. Whoa -strange spacing! Don't know what that's about.

  13. Children are able for that level of chocolate consumption whereas adults just falter and fail only half way through the second giant bar.

    Happy birthday Katie!

    Weekend chocolates (the jigsaw reminded me) used to be my absolute favourites - I loved them dearly, studied their advertisements minutely, and was inconsolable when they ceased to be available.

  14. Hi, I am a new reader and I wanted to say thank you for your chorizo and chickpea rice recipe.I made it last night and it was a great success.
    Happy birthday to your daughter and Happy mothers day to you.
    Keep up the good work with your blog.Liz

  15. Thanks ever so Sue, we shall have fun doing that one!

  16. Chocolate for breakfast? I was conned.

  17. Glad to know that other households follow the time old tradition of chocolate breakfasts on Mother's Day. We also follow this tradition at Easter, on Father's Day, on Birthdays and well any day we get the chance of a lie-in! Must be washed down with a nice cup of coffee too though!

    Hope you had a lovely mother's day.

  18. Chocolate for breakfast! I'd have loved that. We have a split over the chocolate issue in this house. My oldest and youngest don't really go for chocolate - they're still working their way through the Christmas stash, and we all know not to bother getting any for Mr PC. Middle had finished all hers by boxing day and would love that jigsaw puzzle to keep her going between festivals!

  19. respect! I love to have chocolate for breakfast at Christmas and Easter as it feels soo naughty...must branch out and include other feast days. love the blog and am going to try out your flatbread recipe...wonder if you could add chocolate in... Emmax

  20. I could almost smell the chocolate whilst I was reading this. Love the jigsaw and will definitely have a look on Amazon. I collected sweet wrappers in the 80s for a typography project I did at Poly - this really takes me back!

    Hope you all survived the chocolate overload!
