Chocolate Boxes

I have been taken by surprise with a flurry of 'made to order' chocolate requests. I have just come through the other side feeling surprisingly transformed by the experience of creating something from nothing for the enjoyment of others.

I set out in the sunshine yesterday evening with this completed box of chocolates on the passenger seat of my car. Sometimes journeys create a calm suspension of time, setting a passenger still despite the steady rush of earth and sky, landscape and industry whizzing by.

After the busy, busy weeks behind me, I found myself calm, floating over the world as it rolled by beneath my tyres.

A pause.

A chance to feel a genuine sense of achievement.

To feel truly fortunate.

  4. Thank you, Karen :)

    I'm on making a few boxes at the moment. In fact it's chocolate around the clock these days as I've been working on 240 chocolates for a wedding in Birmingham.

    Little did I know when I started twiddling with chocolate that it would lead to this!
