Pear, Chocolate and Walnut Porridge

Good morning! What a busy but incredible weekend! Friday Night I went for cocktails with my Mum and one of my oldest best friends and her friends which was hilarious as always and then I was meant to be chilling with my Mum for a bit whilst I waited for Rob buttttt Jo had a spare ticket (oldest best friend) to a gig they were going to, so I was proud of myself for being spontaneous and going to that instead and having such a good laugh and dance! Then they walked my to meet Rob and his friends as we were going out out! Again had such a good laugh, sing and dance. Saturday we dragged ourselves up as both me and Rob were off to manchester! I was meeting my girly Yas and Rob was off to a lecture for the day. We all went for lunch and then parted as me and Yas were off Christmas shopping! Very successful and it was lovely to catch up with Yas and have a right laugh as always! Then I met Rob and we took a painfully busy, dark, wet and long trip home, climbed into bed, popped my electric blanket on, a film and ordered pizzas! Sunday we had such a lie in and then chilled all day, of course it was stir up your christmas cake Sunday, so we did that too! Then just caught up on TV in front of the fire and made our Christmas lists!

This week is back to chocolatingggg! I’ve been focusing on my bar range this week for LeitchyCreates.  I now stock my bars in Porterbrook Deli Sheffield on Sharrowvale Road as well as on my website! Let me know your favourites if you’ve tried them! I’m cherry all the way!
