    What a week! I had a strange dream this week that made me think of you – it was about a chocolate that I was buying (or being given???) and it so precious that seven members of staff has to give their approval for me to have it – I think I just couldn’t be bothered (a bit like the queue at the falafel shop this morning). Much nicer than your dream though – hate those horrid dreams that wake me in the middle of the night! Glad the cadbury soothed you – it can be good like that! I have oodles of chocolate for baking today but E just wants to eat it all. Must go and get baking!

    A very odd week. Glad there were some highlights amongst the rest. And surprised with your opinion of those Cadbury eggs! Now I might need to try some- I would usually avoid those like the plague.

    Like a big warm hug. Like porridge

  4. Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella

    I just can’t do Cadbury chocolate. I really try but it makes my fillings hurt lol. Love the pic of you in the ponytail, it suits you! 😀

    1. I love you.
    2. You are a dork.
    3. I love you (in part) BECAUSE you are a dork.
    4. Not to much Babysitters Club as Saddle Club, I think.
    5. I am a sucker for those eggs! I love that hard sugar shell. Which is why Jordan almonds are like crack to me. One time I went to a wedding that had little bags of them for all the guests. At the end of the night, soooo many people had left theirs behind. Do you see where this is going? Lizzi brought out her giant suitcase of a handbag. Waste not, want not! 😉
    6. I’m a big fan of the cry-detox too. Sometimes nothing else will do 🙂
    7. We need to hang some time soon so I can give you a PROPER cuddle… guaranteed to be even better than the almost-as-good-as chocolate variety.

      aaaaaaaahahaha maybe that’s where I got the Saddle Club vibe from… you know… native fauna… spirited young women frolicking in the bush…. etc etc..

    I love this post! So many pretty pictures.
    You look fantastic in the glasses with the ponytail. You’ve reminded me that I need to make an appointment with the optometrist to get stronger glasses and new frames.
    Is your hair naturally curly like that or is there a 5 hour process involved in achieving that gorgeous look??

    The eggs are so colourful and pretty! So you ended up buying them despite the ridiculously high price. It was very worth it if they made you happy.

    I love using the term “one” in conversations when I’m feeling silly. 😉
    We are always here to give you a virtual cuddle, but I am more than positive you have many people in your life to receive cuddles from. Puppies love giving cuddles too. 🙂
    It’s extremely sweet how you reply to each individual comment on your blog Hannah.

    Oh, that is a topsy turvy week 🙁 I’m glad you’re feeling better and hope the Cry Detox achieved it’s purpose. Crying oneself (hehe) to sleep is not very fun, and neither is waking up from dreams crying (although I confess to slight reassurance that I’m not the only one who does that, as I’ve had people express surprise at it being possible). Definitely better to have laugh-until-you-hurt Wednesdays.

    I sneakily enjoy those sugar coated eggs too. I also recently discovered rum and raisin flavoured sugar eggs from Big W – I forget the brand (sorry!) but they came in ~200g packs and were black and gold on the outside. They were highly delicious and got eaten well before Easter!

    I love watching a sad movie to get a cry out. We always hold in our emotions and they can come out at odd times!
    That or the shower is a great place (got this tip from emotion-frightened boys ;))

    Cadbury eggs are a dangerous, dangerous thing! Except for the jelly filled ones, yuck 😛

  9. The Teenage Taste

    Those Cadbury Mini Eggs are so addicting! I could easily eat the entire bag in one sitting, but I resist…most of the time. 😉
    Have an awesome weekend!

  10. msihua

    Ooo… you look so pretty with the hair all up! Hahaha Going for the sultry librarian look?

    p/s Book Post is being written right now 🙂 Scheduled for this week 😛

  11. Errign

    You had quite a week! I gotta say though, a week that ends in Cadbury mini eggs has got be okay. I do like those little things!

  12. Kath (My Funny Little Life)

    I hope the milkiness of the eggs didn’t upset your stomach even more! But great you enjoyed them. 🙂

    I know similarly looking sugary eggs from Germany as well. My grandmom used to buy a bag for Easter. 🙂 There are too fillings: some kind of nougat and marzipan, and I always loved the marzipan and found the nougat disgusting (still do). The problem was that you couldn’t tell from the outside which filling was inside. Perhaps this is why I never really got into those eggs, although I loved the marizipan-filled ones very much.

  13. Priyanka

    Cadbury!!!! It is one commercial brand chocolate that is amazing. Laptop woes, hate them.

  14. Ashley @ Thefitacademic

    So sorry your week took a turn for the worse! I had something similar happen, but on a less dramatic level (nothing happened to make me cry). At work on Thursday I got all excited about something, then Friday learned that I was mistaken and this really great thing was not happening as I thought it would. Boo! I hope your weekend helps to perk your spirits up!

  15. Ricki

    Yes, indeed a topsy turvy week! Wish I did yoga, too. Sorry about the virus (that must really piss one off). Glad you got the laptop fixed. Bet the elderly appreciated you. Wish I could still drink like that, too–though I don’t envy the tummy aches. Like the ponytail. Would cry at that dream, too. Oh, and I have always loved ALL Cadbury chocolate products–especially those darned Creme Eggs–and even these mini eggs. Which, I must admit, I’ve never heard described in “fine wine” terminology before. Leaves one very impressed! 😉

  16. Agnes

    *cough* I just purchased a snuggie deluxe….. in RED. (I am completely serious.) Yay for the wonders of the internet!

    PS: You look great with your hair up!

  17. Miri Leigh

    Those cadbury eggs are like heaven! Great post- thanks for sharing 🙂

    I’ve never tried those eggs, the pastel covering freaks me out a little. Good to know they’re not bad. I too think crying can be helpful sometimes. Crying detox – I like it. Extreme week!!
    Heidi xo
    p.s. love the ponytail on you

  19. Kath Lockett

    They’re not bad, are they? And so purdy…

  20. Brent

    Catch of the Day was selling Snuggies for $5 ea the other day 🙂

    I got really tired reading which isn’t any reflection on your writing but on how much I’m trying to do with so little time so really I haven’t taken much in other than seeing super colourful eggs and some cute photos of you (the one with the pony tail I almost didn’t recognise you!!). I did see something about crying and how your week has been very up and down and I have to say my week has been the same. I’ve been in tears some of this week and bouncing off the walls at other times. 3 weeks to go and then maybe life can sort of become normal and stable and less exhausting and stressful.

  22. penny aka jeroxie

    I quite like your look in the ponytail 😛
    not tried the mini ones. wonder if they have a similar type in US right now. will twitpic!

  23. leaf (the indolent cook)

    I don’t mind Cadbury eggs either. Also – I had a cry detox several weeks ago and it really seemed to work wonders!

  24. Conor @ HoldtheBeef

    I’ve been having some oddball dreams lately, but never are there are mauling dogs. I hope there are no mauling dogs tonight.

    Also, you’ve got stomach gremlins too?! If you’re heading over here to have stern words to my Mr Belly I think I also need to head over there and sort out these gremlins! Although, that wouldn’t really work so well. Shall we meet half way? Perhaps not EXACTLY half way, in case that’s in the middle of nowhere, where there may be dingos. Mauling dingos.

  25. Rose

    Wowzers, I wish I had so much excitement in my weeks!
    How wonderful that you have found the choir to bring you such joy. Im hoping to start rock n roll dance classes soon, hopefully to get the same type of enjoyment 🙂
    I had a virus on my laptop a couple of months ago, so scarey how some unknown thing or person can take over your computer like that!
    Those eggs are sewww pretty!


  26. Helen (grabyourfork)

    You look so different with your hair in a ponytail! and lol, which member of the Babysitters Club?!

  27. Xiaolu @ 6 Bittersweets

    LOL you are hilarious. Love your expressions =).

  28. Ellie@fitforthesoul

    I love your look with hair up and glasses! You look really professional too. fried banana sounds amazing! kinda like plantain?

  29. Simply Life

    I didn’t even recognize that was you with the pony tail!

  30. Katherine: Unemployed

    That fried banana is out of control! the peel is fried??

  31. Kayla @ Fitter Than Choc

    Your description of these eggs are enough to make my mouth water. This is so timely, because someone recommended these eggs on my blog too. I really would love to try it!

  32. Emma

    Hah, how great. I read all of the comments and was excited to say “OMG LOLZ which BSC member is, like, your fave??? I think Claudia is like totally sweet!!” But nearing the end of the comments, I see that you’ve got that covered, and you went for Claudia as well. Claudia was so cool, almost as cool as Tamagotchis huh?

    I’m a big fan of VHS and have been slowly collecting the BSC videos as I find them at thrift stores. Did you see the episode with Zach Braff? Dawn is so FIERCE!

    This may be too much Babysitters Club for anyone reading this but me. Ummm errrm I like Cadbury mini eggs! And creme eggs too, mmm, no such thing as too sweet!

  33. Shannon

    I just wanted to chime in and profess my undying love for Cadbury Mini Eggs. I suppose they may be a bit different from the ones we have here but I seriously cannot start eating them without finishing almost an entire bag. Too bad it’s Sunday night and I can’t run out and get some now… I’m drooling!

  34. Jamee

    Mini Cadburry Eggs are the BEST Easter candy on Earth! Love, love, love them! <3

  35. Susan

    I love cadbury’s solid easter eggs. Only when I feel like something super sweet though, cause they are super sweet. I haven’t had one of those mini ones for ages though. I always think I don’t like them, but then when I eat them I forget how good they are.
