Drive Me Crazy

Since we purchased the bus, we’ve been parking the Choctails van on a cleared section of front lawn. This week we began the process of re-doing the whole front garden and had the entire garden space cleared so that we could decide what to do with it.

Having parked our vehicles in a nearby side road we happened upon a team installing a block-paved driveway, and after a whirlwind sales pitch, by Wednesday we had a team onsite laying our own block paving. By Saturday it was all but completed …. Due to the snow they can’t do the final finishing off until it’s all dried out, but we were a little speechless at how fast it was all done!

On Friday we attended a Mr Wheeler’s Wine Tasting at Bang & Olufsen, which was an interesting mix of accompanying wines and sound systems. The most interesting part for me was meeting another chocolatier – Tosier Chocolate who make bean-to-bar origin chocolate. I’ve been promised a sample of their Haitian chocolate 🙂

This morning I attempted a run and managed all of 200 metres to the ice-encrusted pavement. That was not going to end well, so I abandoned the idea and headed back into the warmth. Bizarre that on Friday it was warm enough for me to dry a load of washing outside!

Choctails® was founded by husband and wife team Simon and Hilary Delamare. Simon's suggestion of putting cocktail flavours into chocolate took Hilary's chocolate-making hobby to new heights, until in May 2012, the decision was made to turn the hobby into a full time business. The domestic kitchen became a production factory by day, and the dining room was given up to become a place where hand-made chocolate is crafted
