Only a matter of time before I tuck in to festive treats

Have your say

Chocolate is for life, not just for Christmas.

Scouring the kitchen cupboards, I’ve stumbled across containers full of supposedly hidden chocolatey goodness.

These tiny individually foil-wrapped treats have been bought and stashed away with Christmas in mind, but I fear for their existence.

When I lie awake in bed at night I can hear their soft, velvety whispers drifting up the stairs, saying ‘unwrap me, nibble me, devour me…it’s our little secret’.

I’ve been strong so far, but it’s only a matter of time.

The closer we get to the festive season, the better my excuse for eating them one by one and throwing the wrappers in next door’s wheely bin.
