  1. Nice to find you, Roy! I, too love chocolate!

    Good to meet you Doreen.

    I’ve been enjoying your blog, particularly the Toronto article > < as I’m hoping to visit next summer. You have some terrific chocolate and travel writing there; two of my favourite subjects.

    • Thanks very much, Roy! Chocolate and travel are 2 of my favourite things as well. That’s why I’ve spent more than 2 years travelling to the chocolate hot spots of the world. The 1st edition of my book will be out next year. Thanks for subscribing to the blog. There will be lots of tasty updates there. And yes, Toronto, is indeed quite the chocolate destination. Stay tuned for more on that!

    little nanny lived lamcote grove, the meadows so feel nottinghamish. Little Nanny would give us thruppnbit, a tanner and a bob, not sure whether these are true Nottingham. Do you know this : if yo bob don’t give ourz bob that bob that yo bob owes ourz bob ar bob will gie yo bob a bob on the nose. regards jennifer

      Hello Jennifer, thanks for the ‘Bob’ sentence; I’ve not come across that before.

      The thrupp’ny bit (three pence coin), tanner (six pence coin) and the bob (shilling or 12 pence coin) were general pre-decimalisation terms for some of the old imperial coinage, not only used in Nottingham, but all over the country. Roy
