Life's hard

We are going back to the UK for a couple of weeks. I am not looking forward to it - the climate here is so much more agreeable. However, I am giving myself a slap around the head for such thoughts. I'm lucky I have the chance. And I will hopefully get to see some of my friends. Which brings me on to a little difficulty.

Lilith and I have a little arrangement - she tapes ER for me, I buy Swiss chocolate for her. I have been putting off sending the next chocolate installment beacause I thought it would survive the journey better in my suitcase, rather than going by Die Post and Royal Mail. So what's the problem? The heat. It's been knocking 30 degrees for days now. Not the best chocolate buying weather. Had to give in today and hope it has survived the trip.

As you can see, my life is full of difficulty. Too hot to buy chocolate. Life is hard ;0)


  1. You're just mocking us. It's OK, though - we're better off for not having the heat. Really.

  2. We always buy chocolate at the airport (after passport control & before security). That way it's the freshest possible, it stays with us and therefore hopefully remains cool and it has the best chance of actually arriving at the intended person's home. As opposed to being eaten at our home because they won't miss "just one."
