Win a ton of Chocolate to Beat the January Blues

[ 255 ] Comments

chocolate winWell, it doesn’t weigh a ton but look at all that chocolate! Guylian, Thorntons, Chocolate & Love, Lindt and more are all there and they could all be yours! I have no idea how much it would cost if you went down to the shops to buy all this chocolate but given there seems to be over a kilo of it I am sure it wouldn’t be cheap!

I have had a terrible Year of the Dragon, having lost my grandfather, mother in law and almost my husband to food poisoning. Almost every white good in my home decided to break at the same time, I’ve gained weight and I didn’t get a discount on my annual train ticket to London which I have to buy for work. I know I’m broke, stressed and ready for the Chinese New Year when the stars will fly and hopefully things will get better (I am a trained Feng Shui practitioner and know both Flying Stars and Eight Mansions styles) and I assume some of you, my dear readers, are too!

I decided that given how dire my year has been, and how bad some of yours have been given what I’ve seen on Twitter, that EVERYONE needs a bit of a pick-me-up so what I thought I’d do was have a competition for everyone in the UK (this is so heavy I am fearful of what the cost would be for international shipping).

This year, I’m hoping for a full recovery from Anorexia, as a sufferer for three years, my ex partner of six years decided to break it off with me, as she didn’t want the burden of my eating disorder.
