Jo, it's gorgeous :heart: Really, really stunning. It looks perfect - nicely broken in, but perfect condition.

I love chocolate darwin, too :tup: It's so robust.


Pack it away and don't look at it until June :lol: I know it will be hard but it will be so worthwhile. I did that with my Orange Mabel and I was so pleased I did. It was such a lovely treat to open it at Christmas :yes:

Fabby! I love the way you were in such a rush to take a pic of it that there's all the stuffing & dustbag too - can just imagine your excitement!!
Well done, it is such a you bag and I know how much you love your chocolate. June may seem a long way but with our bag ban, it might be nice to have a new bag to get out in a few months time. You'll enjoy it more than if you start using it now.
And, don't forget, that's your 2009 bag done now!

Beautiful bag and the wrapping makes it all the more special. What a joy to receive such a lovely package to undo. I'm so glad you have something to make up for the disappointment over "you know what" Jo! :smile:
