Last week I was pampering my tootsies and – hooray, hooray – we’ve finally been rewarded with some spring weather, my new sandals have had an airing and the first daffs and tulips are shooting up in the garden before our very eyes 🙂
But, as usual on a Monday, I’ve got another pamper idea for you up my sleeve. Or should I say in my handbag..?
I’m not a huge fan of sweets (candy, for all you US peeps) but I love a little bit of chocolate and tend to go overboard – oopsie! I especially love chocolate in the afternoon or (for some reason) when I’m at a rock concert. I’m infamous in my circle of friends for producing a giant box of After Eights, a Tupperware box full of M+Ms or a cellophane bag full of homemade chocolate fudge when standing having a beer at the bar. Here’s a little peek at what we’ll be enjoying at tomorrow night’s Ultravox concert 😉
But have you tried this killer combo? Macadamia nuts and chocolate-covered raisins? I love that it combines sweet and salt, a sort of trail mix for grown-ups 🙂
The kids have got some dinky little plastic lunch tubs which I’ve pinched borrowed for my sweet treats. Just enough room for a handful…
I ended up with 9 tubs in all, so there’ll be one in my handbag every day of the week. And a couple for ’emergencies’ 😉
The pamper message for this week? Remember to be nice to yourself because – just like rich good dark chocolate – a little goes a long way 🙂 If you need more pamper ideas, I’ve got lots more of them here on the blog and the Flylady has a whole section on her website.
Have a marvelous Monday! 🙂
