Somtimes, the pressures of life overwhelm us. Chocolate always helps.

I thought that I would buy myself a chocolate Easter Egg And keep it till the light of Easter morn. I kept it in the 'fridge but temptation drew me in To taste it long before the Easter dawn. Strong-minded and severe, I resisted everyday Remembering the dark luscious flavour Protected by a covering of shiny golden foil, My mouth kept watering as I could savour Such a treat waiting patiently for me till Easter Day, A sign of new life but I lost the plot! On Saturday, after a dreadful week, I grabbed the egg, Tore off the golden foil and scoffed the lot.

Thanks, Dave. It took some effort to leave it alone.

Yes, we know what it's like when our resistance is low.

I can resist anything but temptation! I too will stand in the circle and admit that "I am a chocoholic!" This ditty made me laugh out loud and gained you a 7

Chocolate certainly sweetens life when there are problems.

G'day Elisabeth... and why not. The egg will taste the same no matter when you scoff it. You brought a smile to the dial as I imagined you reaching out and pulling back until temptation won. Thank you Elisabeth - Lindsay

Thank you. The only problem is that it has gone and Easter is still over a week away. What to do I wonder???

Thanks for your comment. I did have some Christmas chocs up until the beginning of March but now they're gone .......just like the Easter Egg. Such a weak-willed person.
