Anything that involves me eating chocolate every day is a winner!

So every year at the end of November, my nan buys all her grandchildren an advent calendar. 

This year, she's really excelled herself, because she has bought this masterpiece from Thorntons that not only has a chocolate for every day, but also has four huge bonus-sized pieces of chocolate, that do not appear to be assigned to any particular day, and (and!!) one of those has my bloody name on it! My whole name! Not just the Lj part, the whole shebang! 

I'll tell you something for nothing, that's pretty cool. And when you come from a large family like mine, it saves any arguments over whose is whose.

Yesterdays chocolate: duly ingested

And not only that... it also has the best thing ever on it: penguins. I love penguins. Some might say a little too much. I can't help it. They are just so goddamned cute when they waddle along. And when they're cold they huddle together. Penguins are for the win.

And I'm not just saying that. Look:

I even have a penguin that sits on my bed. So I wasn't making it up. I really do love penguins a little too much.

And chocolate.

And Christmas... but you'll hear all about that this month.

Merry Happy Advent Goodness!
