					I was attempting to keep my children busy the other day. I walked in to
find my boys had decided to do a bit of spring cleaning, toddler style,
and had removed every piece of clothing from their shelves in the
wardrobe and promptly scattered them all over the floor along with the
even spreading of their toys on top to boot, there was no visibility of
the bedroom carpet to be seen. Just as when you are at primary school and
teacher tries to tell you to fill all parts of the paper without leaving
and traces of white left!In an attempt to keep their frantic little minds
from wandering any further and to at least keep the house in some what
orderly fashion, I decided it was time to strap them in the car, leave
the mess behind and head for town in search of some amazing new discovery
to keep my little angels busy!Walking through the shops and viewing all
the pre-packed items it was getting clear to me that the quality of most
items these days are simply not built to last.I continued up the high
street where I ventured, with children in tow, into a quaint little
bookshop where I made a great discovery, how to make handmade chocolate
truffles! What a beauty and what a great genius idea. Upon reading the
contents of this book and viewing the delightful photos of what the end
product should look like after production, it was a great way to keep the
little monkeys busy and out of trouble, I won't mention about the
thoughts that ran around my head about the newly decorated kitchen that
would have a lovely coating of chocolate and strands once the children
had finally finished.We paid for the book and rushed over to the
supermarket to purchase the ingredients for the first recipe. The staff
at the supermarket were all rather lovely and gave me a look of sincere
admiration as the contents of the shopping basket made it clear as to the
activity that would shortly take place. At this time the children were
starting to get slightly restless, this is when I took the opportunity to
advise them what the task of the day was going to be, their little faces
lit up with sheer delight, while mine frowned at thoughts of what lay
ahead!We arrived home, ok deep breath, is worth skipping this part and
getting straight to the cup of tea? Needless information, however, I was
pleasantly surprised, the boys took the job at hand rather maturely, and
enjoyed mixing and being ever so gentle attempting to make each of their
handmade chocolate truffles look so professional!Unfortunately the taste
was not as welcoming as they would have hoped, after clearing up and
juices all round the boys were absolutely shattered and decided it was
time to have a nap. This is the point where I sank into the sofa with
what seemed like the best cup of tea ever, moral of the story? Leave the
chocolate truffle making to the professionals!
