Dear Customers,

Our most popular Raw Chocolate Pies at Christmas time are Festive and Date & Walnut.  We have brought them together on our Christmas Page in a gift box containing four of each flavour.  For one week only until next Sunday, 12th December, we are reducing the cost of THE FESTIVE BOX to £12.00 for 8 pies!  

The Festive Box – 8 pies for £12

The Festive Pie includes Christmassy things – cranberries, nutmeg, cinnamon and a little brandy.  Date & Walnut, as the name suggests, contains dates and walnuts!  THE FESTIVE BOX is extremely good value and if you buy 2, they will be post and package free.

I am very, very aware that weather related problems, which have persisted for many people this week, have been simply awful.  My day, last Saturday, did not begin well. I woke at 3 am to a loud bang and the realisation that we had no power.  I made my way to the kitchen to find the kitchen window fastenings had broken and a gale force wind was pouring into the house.  I won’t bore you with the details, but I managed to fix the window by torchlight.  From then on, everything was magic (though I appreciate it was just for a day, any longer would have been very different).  I lit the log burning stove, moved the parrot into the sitting room where the dogs were already lounging about and then realised my phone and laptop had run out of battery.  So, there was nothing for it – I just had to spend the day reading and cuddled up with the dogs on the sofa in front of the fire.  I absolutely loved it.  The trouble with having a business run from home, you are never off duty and always feel you should be working…but I couldn’t, so I didn’t!

The calm after the storm

On Sunday morning, this was the view from the top of Trencrom Hill at sunrise. What an extraordinary little island we live on – there was not a breath of wind.
Have a good week.

Best wishes,
