Sweet Temptation

Sweet Temptation

As Oscar Wilde famously said: 'I can resist everything except temptation.' So after this
quick shot of some Christmas left overs I couldn't resist the temptation and ate
two of these delicious chocolates just to make sure that they tasted as good
as they look....mmmmmmm. Which probably wasn't such a
good idea as I'd been to the dentist earlier getting a temporary crown on the
tooth which had root canal treatment a few weeks ago. But I was heading out to
a boring meeting so I think I deserved a little treat and now I'm going to
abandon Pbase for the rest of the evening and catch up with some reading
in front of the fire.

reading in front of the fire with a few wee treats is just rewards.. I like the image, good depth and has a lot of character...
