Dear Customers,

I have decided to extend our BLACK FRIDAY OFFER for two more days until the end of the month because it is proving so very popular.  For those of you who might have missed last week’s email, as is tradition on Black Friday, we are offering our FULL HOUSE BOX (which contains 12 Raw Chocolate Pies) for just £15 – a saving of £12 on the normal price.

All this for just £15!

This really is a great deal and one which, sadly, Deets and I will not be able to repeat due to the rising cost of just about everything. So, go on, spoil yourself, or your friends and family to whom we can send direct.

November is the month in which my mother was born. She died five years ago a few months after her 100th birthday and I always particularly think about her at this time of year.  She absolutely loved a party and here she is at the celebration of her 100th birthday, complete with her telegram!

Mother on her 100th birthday

She spent her last few years in a lovely care home in Truro and when the party ended, me and one of the carers took my mother back to her room where she fell asleep immediately having managed to drink an impressive quantity of champagne! “The thing about your mother,” the carer said, “is that she is the only person who ever asks how we are.  I will always remember her for that.” With Covid apparently far from over and NHS staff stretched almost beyond endurance, it seems a very fitting epitaph to my mother.  Who cares for the carers?  In these difficult times, it is something to think about.

Best wishes,
