I have added these little boxes to my website www.daisyleyboxes.co.uk. The boxes and chocolate wrapper can be any colour and can be personalised to act as seating place names or to say "Thank You" or "Celebrating the wedding of" or "21st Birthday of" in fact anything you like.
We are off to the panto tonight and The Essex Young Farmers "Puss in Boots" production will, no doubt, be full of corny jokes, loads of appalling (and brilliant) acting and plenty of giggles and groans (from the cast and audience). We can't wait, my boys wouldn't dream of going to any other panto, and we are all very excited.
We have two different advent calendars this year. Our usual chocolate one strung up in the kitchen with TWO chocolates this year … yes I do learn from my mistakes and remember the trauma and arguments last year!
We also have this fantastic Lego one, sent from lovely Auntie in Australia, which the boys are really enjoying.
Why Daisyley Boxes ... ? We live near to Golands Bridge that goes over the Daisyley Brook and I've always loved the name. I wish our road was called Daisyley Road but sadly its not, we don't really have a road name, so this is a way of me making use of the name Daisyley. I don't know why it is called Golands Bridge or Daisyley Brook but I really should try and find out - there is talk of a village history group so perhaps I should go along to that.
Today is our Christmas Fayre at school. I will be on the gift basket stall whilst the boys will be on their own stalls selling gift bags and candle holders (at least I THINK that is what they have made). Should be a fun afternoon.
