The magic of Christmas!


I’ve shared with you recently my journey of spiritual development through reading “The Monk who sold his Ferrari” which basically tells us the benefits of eating sensibly, meditation 🧘‍♀️ and getting up earlier and seizing the day.

I found that I was getting up earlier and earlier ( like two hours after going to bed earlier) I was wide awake painting, writing and 😏 eating!

The former activities I think would be acceptable but I realised after **** tins of Quality Streets I just had to behave. I felt ashamed 😔 John never missed an opportunity to point out that he had not had one chocolate out of the **** tins that I had purchased. 😇

When my daughter called I told her to help herself to my tin ( I had eaten all my favourites anyway 😋 ) I begged her to take some in her pockets for my grandchildren after school but she refused, saying they eat enough rubbish without me adding to it 😳

I faithfully told John that I would not purchase anymore quality Streets, I emptied what was left and put them in a plastic bag in the fridge! …… Did you know that they taste far better when they’re cold 😃

One Christmas I had so many chocolates bought that I put them in batches of three in the freezer, this may surprise you but I then mastered the way to hold a frozen chocolate in my mouth until it defrosted. 😍😋🙃 Oh Yes, I am a woman of many talents and a master of none 🙄

Imagine my and John’s surprise this morning when our online grocery delivery arrived at our door and the delivery man told us we had rather a lot of substitutions to our order.   The supermarket had not had their delivery of fresh carrots 🥕 did we want tinned carrots instead.  Here is me trying to live a more spiritual existence, eating live food from the ground! ( okay I know tinned carrots were once alive) but nevertheless people would recognise that it wasn’t a fresh carrot 🥕

I had ordered a large bag of salted peanuts 🧐 half way to healthy eating, they had substituted them with 6 small bags, I let that one go because peanuts are moreish so that maybe was a spiritual gift to stop me over eating ☺️

Then I heard John say ” A tin of Quality Streets”. ” Oh yes,” said the driver, “that is a gift to compensate for the changes to your order” Personally I think the Universe is having a bit of fun with me or just testing my commitment!  Either way the tin will be given away to a good home! Honestly 😇
