Chocolate Cherries

Sometimes you’ve got to spoil yourself. Whether that involves a shopping spree or a cosy day in bed, you’ve just got to indulge in a spot of me time once in a while. My preferred route, is to chow down on a crate load of chocolate but this time I decided to up my game and push the boat out.
