    I wish I had chocolate in the house, because I crave it during each visit to your blog.

    Love the picture. 🙂

    What cool parents! last time I house sitted for my parents they gave me the shampoo and soap from the hotel (oh and a cap)

  3. Fiona

    At least you got chocolate 🙂

  4. Lisa (bakebikeblog)

    oooooh house sitting can be fun!!!

  5. lynn @ the actor's diet

    my fave part of house sitting is discovering new foods!

    Haha love this post (and yes that whole Dawson/Joey thing ended stupidly)

    This choc had a strawberry and marshmallow notes? yum!

  7. steph

    uh, they didn’t end up together because pacey and joey are more awesome together, OBVIOUSLY.

    House-sitting sounds so grown-up! I love that the chocolate is both yoghurt-y and marshmallow-y in nature.

    I also LOVE your curls, mine are positively limp in comparison and aspire to that level of curlicity.

  9. Helen (grabyourfork)

    Sexypants ahoy! I always wanted curls growing up – I used to sleep with my hair in plaits but the limp ‘curls’ would wilt within half an hour. lol

    And oh Dawson. Who used to write their dialogue?! And sneaking into each other’s bedroom via a ladder late at night starts to get a little creepy after age 10. lol

    Gasp. Oh the cruelty of your parents. 😉 Hey – unlimited use of their car?? Road trip! (Although that would defeat the purpose of house sitting… since you wouldn’t be at their house… hmm. But they didn’t stock the fridge with cheese, so they broke their end of the deal first – right?)

  11. Sues

    Hahaha well next time you house-sit, I have a feeling the fridge will be full of blue cheese!!

  12. whisperinggums

    Now, don’t forget the all the lovely carrots in the fridge – and I think there was a Pitango (sp) Sweet Potato Soup there too!

    Lousy parents not leaving blue cheese! Still two bars of chocolate is a nice consolation prize. You mustn’t be housesitting for long if you’ve only got two bars to get you through….. It may not surprise you to know but I never liked the Maggie Beer quince and bitter almond icecream. Actually I think I spat it out. I did love one of them- the caramelised fig one. They stopped selling it in small town Australia because of poor sales. I suspect we were the only ones who bought it here.

  14. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    Hehe you are too funny. I love that pic of you giving the thumbs down Hannah-so expressive! 😛

    Joey and Dawson were never meant to end up together. Dawson became wierd. Pacey was sexy. I miss Dawson’s Creek!

  16. Simply Life

    I love that picture – show’s what a true disappointment it was!

  17. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    I never watched Dawson’s Creek. Ever. It seems it’s a good thing I wasted my time on other lame shows if I was only going to be disappointed in the long run. Lame TV show disappointment is nothing compared to blue cheese disappointment though.

    I can’t help but think you are lucky you didn’t come into your room to find a pile of blue cheese on your bed though. That might give you some crazypants dreams.

  18. Camille

    Yeah, I thought Joey should have picked Dawson in the end, too. I mean, after all that! Mostly I just felt sorry for Dawson, though. He was such a weiner!

    Mmm, I relate to the ‘no make up, look 14 yr old thing’ – My mum tells me I’ll be glad about it one day, but don’t you think being asked for ID at the sophisticated age of 28 is a bit much. Haahahaaa, I digress.
    Cool parents giving up some yummy chokky., last time I house sat their dogs ate my iPhone charger…, still haven’t looked comfortable around labs since (sigh)

  20. Amber Shea @Almost Vegan

    You and the house-sitting! But if you’re paid in chocolate, it can’t be all that bad ;]

    And, you and your curly ringlets! Seriously, you may get tired of it, but just know that it’s covet-able to a stick-straight-haired girl 😛

  21. April @ My Food Trail

    Oh wow, you look so young in that photo! 🙂 And that a major compliment as I’m sure you will always stay young looking! I just look OLD!

    I love how you can pick up all sort of aromas and tastes from a block of chocolate. You should get a job as a chocolate connoisseur!

  22. Vaala ◪

    Is it terrible that I can’t help thinking how cute that photo is?!! And I haven’t had chocolate in a few days (I know!) so those photos are making my mouth water. Oh dear!

  23. L-Izzle

    Okay, I’m sorry, but I’m going to not let the blue cheese thing rest either, because I need to share this…

    On Saturday, my boyfriend had a fit of generosity, and bought one of his clients, Michael, a honkin’ huge slab of Stilton. Just because. Just to be nice. Just because ‘Michael’s a really nice guy and he really appreciated it’.

    I don’t care how flippin’ nice Michael is and I don’t care if it made his day or his week or his LIFE… I want that cheese for meeeeeeeeeeee!!! D:

    In unrelated news, that’s a very cute photo of you and I like your jumper very much. I am a big fan of knitted-anything, especially old-man-style jumpers 🙂
    (mine are all legitimately old-man, as I’ve stolen them from my dad over the years, bwaaaaaaaaaaaahahaha)

  24. Iron Chef Shellie

    well i’m glad you still got something good to eat, despite the fridge not being stocked with your requests 😛

  25. Johanna GGG

    I wondered why you hadn’t told us about your little sister when I saw that photo – you do look young but it also made me laugh because you look so cute and pouty – and I hear that some guys love that sort of thing 🙂

    I am sure your parents fridge is very interesting even if there is no blue cheese

    Ok, so I’m trawling through your blog instead of writing an essay (whatever- also, you wanted me to comment!), and you mentioned The West Wing. Ohmy! If I discovered the West Wing before uni started I wouldn’t have completed anything- I watched the entire thing twice over the summer. (And gained inappropriate crushes on the male cast) Eating chocolate whilst watching The West Wing could well have made the experience better. Must try it for next time.
    Also, totally digging your blog.

    […] the past week, I’ve been house-sitting for my parents again. You might remember that, last time, I pouted because I thought I was getting blue cheese along with the house, but such was not the […]
