Happy Memories

My darling youngest daughter is back home safe and sound in Fremantle and resuming daily life. The sound of both my daughters talking and laughing is still audible in my head but the house is silent. I have very happy memories of the time she was here though.

Retail therapy. Clothes, shoes and chocolate. We all like Hotel Chocolat. We usually buy the selector packs of 6 chocolates. My favourites are cherry deluxe, salted caramels and burnt caramels. I stock up with enough to last until my next visit (usually a couple of months). My daughters however have usually polished off their 1 pack each before getting back to the car! They are utterly delicious though. I’m a chocoholic but I do have to limit the amount I eat now in order to maintain my current weight
Next time I go I'm going to try apple strudel and chocolate fudge sundae flavours :-) 





ACANTEEN

Our favourite place for breakfast, or coffee and cake






It's a family run business and now has a bakeshop full of tempting cakes, pies and breads, and a store selling lovely handmade ethical jewellery, home furnishings, gorgeous gifts and more.


And of course relaxing in the garden

  1. Hi Polly so nice to meet you, I am also a chocoholic love anything with chocolate. I love making memories especially with family, as I have found that memories carry me through the good times and the not so good times, and they carry me until the next time.
    Thank you for visiting me and for your sweet comment.

    1. Hi Sue, thank you for your comments. I have 40 photo albums of happy memories starting from when I was married. Most of them are of my daughters. Whenever Jo visits they have a great time looking through them :-)

  2. I love chocolate too - coffee flavoured is great. Or orange. I can't eat too much though.

    1. Hi Gillian, there have been times when I have eaten far too much chocolate and I thought it would put me off it, but it never does! When I'm really old I plan to live off chocolate, cake and Asti Spumante !!! :-)
