Sent To Coventry

This week I was asked to go to Volvo Coventry as part of their Christmas shopping bonanza. I had the opportunity to catch up with an old friend whilst I was there, and managed to sell a lot of chocolate as a bonus.

This weekend has been my first weekend off for a while …. well, when I say weekend off …. I’ve been busy making chocolate ready for next weekend’s Spirit Show at the Business Design Centre. We’re keeping on top of web orders at the moment, although I’m not managing my daily walks to the Post Office. With at least 20kg of chocolate in the box, I’m having to drive the half kilometre every day, which is totally against my principles, but necessary due to the weight and volume!

I did, however, manage to go for a nice long run this morning. Almost managed a new PB on my 14 kilometre route, but missed out by a few seconds. The legs are going to punish me tomorrow, I can tell!

Tomorrow I’m heading to Yorkshire for a couple of days so that we can finish clearing Dad’s house. I think that may be a queue for a night on the red wine with my siblings!

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
