  1. Times like this I kick myself for being lactose intolerant. Though I do have soya chocolate milk.

    I was so happy when I discovered that.

  2. Bluh, I could really go for one of those right now.

  3. Cool blog following :) Merry Christmas

  4. Oh my gosh, yum! I seriously declared "I'm making that!" to each one of these as I scrolled. This page is getting bookmarked.

    My go-to winter drink is hot chocolate and Baileys, with a handful (or two) of marshmallows, of course.
