happy new year

My year started with an outing with my family and my besties family to a great venue!
                          this is actually a chocolate frog.... a very large one too!
We took a  visit to the yarra valley chocolatiere.  I went there last year on the last day of the great Vic bike ride and didn't eat as i was feeling a tad under the weather, so finally over a year later i got to return!
 these aren't books they are blocks of chocolate!!  such pretty wrappings... sure to tempt overseas visitors
 The froglet loved it all... specially all the chocolate frogs
 this was a salted caramel tart with vanilla bean iceceam and a pot of melted chocolate... I can highly recommend the icecreams!
 this was one of their icecream sundaes!!!  honeycomb... in the background I just noticed the fisherman's.... pavlova!!
 I got a bit spoilt this Christmas.... this is a small (hahaha) mug from the froglet... she saw it in London on her travels and said she had to buy it for me.  she broke her no breakable rule for her mummy :)
 This year I got a chook from mum for Christmas... Her 80th birthday is next week and we are having a party.... she has asked people not to give her gifts but to donate to the flying doctors instead.  so we will have envelopes from the flying doctors for ease of donating.
