Awkward Chocolate Episode

Today I have a chocolate.... problem.

Let me explain.

Yesterday I had an opportunity to support one of the local schools (well, I think it was a school, or a charity, or something - all I could focus on was the chocolate) and buy some of their Cadbury fundraising chocolate. You know the ones - Caramellow Koalas, Strawberry Freddos, etc...Mmmm.

Being such a selfless person, and a great supporter of those in need, I bought 4 bars ;)

2 for me, 2 for the husband.

Aren't I a nice wife?

So we had one each for dessert last night and I'm pretty sure I was in the running for wife of the year.

Until now.

I just ate the 2 chocolates that were left for dessert tonight.

I couldn't help it, they were calling to me from the fridge!

So now I have 2 options:
  • buy 2 more this afternoon and hide the empty wrappers so the husband is none the wiser
  • make the house look like someone broke in and stole the chocolate, and come up with a really exciting story about how I tried to save them from the robber but had to put the safety of Sophie and I first.

Which one should I go with?

P.S Whichever way I go, I should prepare for the fact that I will be busted once he reads this post ;)


  1. Just lay down the house rule -

    "Any chocolate left unattended for more than 24 hours is fair game"

    My hubby learnt that one pretty quickly!

    So, what was the outcome when Ben got home??

  2. There was good news and bad news Kat - the bad news was when I went to buy replacement chocolate, they didn't have the same ones! The good news is I got bigger ones. He was pretty happy... Until I made him share with me ;)

  3. :) sounds just like my house Marissa :)

  4. Once you start hiding the evidence of a choccy binge, it's all downhill from there. Suggest you break a plant pot and suggest a break in!! x

  5. Which option did you end up running with? I would have gone with the first for sure!

  6. I owned up and replaced them with bigger ones!

  7. hehee Glad it had a happy ending :) for hubby.
    I always end up buying most of the box not just 4 .

    I have a 17yr old who steals any chocolate left untouched for more than 24hrs...he doesn't replace :(
