December gloom

The relentless onset of the dark has been pulling me down recently. Its pitch black at 4pm here in Scotland. I just want to curl up on the sofa with my knitted blanket drawn over me and a bar of Green & Black's Dark Cherry Chocolate.

As I looked out of the bus window and saw christmas lights in shop windows I wondered if all the hoopla is just a way of trying to chase away the dark?

In any case chasing away the dark recently has been helped by:

Pink Cashmere Gloves - Hawick Cashmere in Grassmarket
Angels on Bare Skin skin cleanser from Lush - the essential oils perk me up
Hot Chocolate with a centred friend.
Going outside at lunchtime to store up light.

If the time of year is getting you down I hope you can gift to yourself something cheering or even better several something cheerings.

Hey, where did you get that nice chocky then? Our local Tesco doesn't have it, need to look further afield then. Is it really new?

creativevoyage here. I think Dark Cherry Choc has been around for a year. Best places to get it area 'healthfoodshops' eg Real Foods in Edinburgh, Delis like Peckhams chain or fairtrade shops like OneWorld Shop underneath St Johns (they also do fairtrade chocolate coins).
