Bright yellow

Left to my own devices tonight watching university challenge, which when I actually get a question right (not often!) excites me immensely, eating dinner AND I'm ashamed to whisper, all of the remaining strawberry creams. Uh oh now I feel rather sick.

5. I am not afraid to quit something. The up side of this, I don't smoke any more, the down side there are a lot of half finished projects laying around my creative space.

Hope you haven't overindulged and your Mondays have been good all round?

I love strawberry creams! And I'm not a quitter where chocolate is concerned. I have to keep going until its all gone.

Ha. I also have that blessing/curse. I hate when it keeps me from finishing a painting. I love that it kept me from wasting a fortune on college.

Ha - too late. I polished off the chocolate bourbon biscuits earlier. Felt rather sorry for Exeter this evening. I got rather excited about getting two questions right - an all time record...

He he! I was in there like a shot with the Tchaikovsky answer! Maybe I cant spell it? Yes poor Exeter. Bourbons yum!

Gosh you are probably going to feel very sorry for me right now, but I've never had strawberry creams! Do they sell them in the U.S.? They sure look delicious on your beautiful blog. I'm sure I'd eat too many, too. (-:

I love it when I get a question right on university challenge! One of my boyfriend's main ambitions in life is to be on university challenge...but since he graduates this year I don't know whether he'll be able to! Hehe

Yummy when I was little my dad would buy us either Strawberry creams or Coffee creams when we went to the cinema, I still can't decide which I like best! Yours look lovely.
Daffodil are such cheerful flowers, they even call one of that family of plants 'Cheerfullness' don't they?

okay, so i'm in the uk, how have i missed strawberry creams? how could i have missed something that looks this delicious? i googled them, are the ones you have (or did have) by Beech's?

it's good to know when to quit something, as long as you're quitting for the right reasons :)

i, too, have a closet filled with half-done crafts and other projects. i'm trying to break that habit...i'm currently trying to finish a crochet blanket.

I have never had Strawberry Creams, are they a British thing? Whenever anyone goes to the UK I have a standing order for little packets of Dolly Mixture from Marks and Spencers, maybe I'll have to add Strawberry creams to the list!
Thanks for the daffodil photo! It makes me happy to see a sign of spring when it's -32 outside!
