Editing, Chocolate & Tax forms

The editing of T&OL is coming along quite well. I only hope that I'm looking at it objectively enough to make sure that it is worth anyone else reading it. I can only give it my best shot, I suppose.

Nevermind, the children brought me back three large bars of Milka chocolate from their trip to Austria as they know only too well how devoted I am to the art of enjoying that melt in your mouth euphoria that only chocolate can bring. I was very restrained and put the three bars away to enjoy at a later date. This was on Sunday and last night I'd had enough of being virtuous and succumed to the temptation and let me tell you it was well worth it. I'll admit that I felt a little sick by the time I poddled off to bed but never one to shy away from these tasty delights I knew that I would feel better this morning and be ready for Round Two. I was right.

I arrived home to see that Mr Tax Man has sent me a large envelope filled with a form, confusing instructions and an envelope. I can't believe it's that time of year again. I won't bother saying how much I hate doing this because I can't truly imagine that there is anyone out there who does enjoy filling the rotten things. Nevermind I shall put it to one side for a bit...

Tax returns are a nightmare aren't they? I always worry that I'll inadvertently get it wrong and end up in prison for tax evasion.

Did you eat all three bars in one go?

I'm not the only one, then. Ha!

Eeeewugh. I received my first tax thingy to fill in last year because I've moved overseas ... I had nothing of interest to write in it, so I assume they don't want me to do it this year. I haven't had a big brown envelope!

Good luck with yours.

helenmh - me too. They seem to come around earlier each year.

leigh - I didnt manage all three bars, only half of one but it was a rather large bar. Yum.

jj - good luck that you don't get one. I'll be glad when mine's completed and sent off - it's just getting round to doing it that's the problem.

lane - I know, I love Milka. They children obviously know me well.

Oh, I am the only one, then...

leigh - if nausea hadn't overcome me I can guarantee that I would have kept on going until those bars were well and truly consumed!
