It's hard being a Welsh rugby supporter

It's the hope that gets you every time.

I didn't expect Wales to beat England the other week so rather than disappointed at the loss I was gratified by their performance. This week I foolishly let my heart rule.

Final score Ireland 37 Wales 27.

I was going to say that score flatters Ireland but really they put on by far the better performance. What the score doesn't reflect is that about five minutes before the final whistle Wales were still in with a chance to draw and even possibly win. And then they threw it all away. Literally.

It's at times like these that I am truly thankful for chocolate.

When I am fortunate to go to Canada, I indulge in their KitKat which looks like your type. It is far yummier than the U.S. Version. Do you by chance have CoffeeCrisps there in England as well? That is my absolute favorite and must purchase chocolate when in Canada.

Do you mean ToffeCrisps, Pipetobacco? In which case yes we do. In Wales! An American firm took over one of our favourite chocolate companies and we fear that our chocolate may change too.
