Chocolate

An exquisite box of caramel sea salt truffles dusted with icing sugar were staring at me from the depths of the fridge, behind the jar of piccalilli – kept only in the fridge because I love the stylish Fortnum and Mason jar – where I had hidden them so nobody else could find them (not that they’d appreciate truffles, they are more of a Smarties bunch).  The chocolates were given to me as a Christmas present by one of my gorgeous pupils.  They were so scrumptious that I was forced to eat the entire box in one sitting, while watching back episodes of The Crown.  A study once concluded that eating chocolate led to improved cognitive performance.  On reflection, perhaps a good rummage and tidy would unveil the whereabouts of the giant box of After Eights which, post Christmas, are lurking somewhere else in the house……
