The Fairy Blog Mother – Comment and You Might Win!


Do you believe in the Fairy Blog (God) Mother? I do, and I have to say as Fairy God Mothers go, mine is really rather great!
All you have to do is make a wish in the comments, and hope that the powers that be grant it. My Fairy Blog Mother sent me a wonderful haul of chocolate, but who knows what they might send you?
A little birdie tells me that their secret identity is Appliances Online, so it might well be worth wishing for something off their site? It doesn’t have to be chocolate, Pig Pig’s Corner got an ActiFry Low Fat Electric Fryer and Mediocre Mum got a fab Slow Cooker!

I had vouchers for the lovely Chocri website, were you can customize your own bars of chocolate, to an amazing detail. I went for two bars of lovely dark chocolate with cappuccino drops and ground coffee. One of these is meant for my brother who is so desperately missing his Lindt Coffee Intense bar that I thought that this might be a nice replacement. The other version of the coffee bar was for me to quality assure it on his behalf ;-)



The chocolate is fab, really rich and dark with a strong 70% base. The coffee beans add a good natural flavour, and a bit of a crunch too. The cappuccino drops are just a bit of fun, but add a coffee-cream taste and do make the bar look rather pretty. I loved my bar and hope my brother will do too.


I went a bit wild with my third bar, I went for a base of both milk and white chocolate, topped with strawberries, blueberries, nougat, and chocolate sizzling rocks! I think I may have invented the perfect Summer chocolate! The sizzling rocks are popping candy, which is one of those sweets that always make me smile. The sweet fruit taste mixed well with the creamy chocolate and the nougat added a nice nutty aftertaste. The bar was quite busy, but I still loved it. The thing about Chocri is, if you do make a crazy combination you only have yourself to blame! Although it is very tempting to keep adding, because they just have so much to choose from!

Big, big thanks to my Fairy God Mother!!
Make your wishes below, and remember the Fairy Blog Mother is reading... so cross your fingers too! All fairy god mother magic is courtesy of the amazing folk at Appliances Online. :-)

My husband and I have finally bought a house (woo hoo!) after living with my parents' since we married last August. However, we have absolutely nothing in the way of furniture or appliances and, since we're now a little short of cash, we won't have the funds to buy anything anytime soon. I would LOVE a pink Smeg fridge for my kitchen. It's the only room that my husband is allowing me to add a touch of girlishness too (plus, you know, it would be nice to actually have somewhere to store food properly other than our current cool-box solution!)

Our washing machine has packed up, and with 2 kids a new one would come in handy right now!

Would love a new gas cooker for my husband who does all the cooking, as ours is on its last legs so that will really help him out as he such a wonderful guy and that in a strange way would say a big thank you to him xx

Chicamba said...

My washing machine has begun to behave in a strange manner and is making funny noises.I don't think it will be around much longer so I would love to get another one.

charliechinuk said...

I would love a wine cooler type fridge to go in my newly renovated spare room. Would be great for any guests that we have - my mum loves cool bottled water x

We both love our chips but I want to make them healthier so I'd love a Tefal Actifry , not so naughty but oh! so yummy.

I am in desperate need of this: Zanussi ZWD14791W Free Standing Washer Dryer. Our one is worn out and we keep trying to make it last just that little bit longer.

I'd love to have a family break away - we've had a horrible year so far and my father died, so a special time for us to spend together would be lovely.

kushlacat said...

you know all i want? one of those electric salt and pepper pots where you press down on them, they go bzzzzz, and out comes your salt and pepper. genius!!

annaojbee said...

Oh Please Fairy Godmother
I have to come clean
My dog ate the hose
Of Mum's drying machine
The dog didn't mean it
To him 'twas a game
But Mummy's old dryer
Will never be the same
I hear you have contacts
At appliances online
I wondered if you'd ask them
When you have time
If they could spare a new one
A Whirlpool would be great
To replace the old one
Wot my dog ate!

A Chest freezer would be majical or perhaps a food processor

Dear Fairy Hob/God Mother,
I would love a Fridge/Freezer, cause much as I love mine, I don't honestly think it is going to last much longer, and with a Boy coming home from University.... It's gonna have to be doing some work to keep up with his eating habits!

hdenton said...

I would like ahoover to clean the dog hairs

Dawn Costen said...

You're fairy godmother is fantastic...If you're fairy godmother could grant me one wish-I would wish for this beauty of a machine...

In the famous classic lyrics of David Essex of days gone by...this would be my "Silver Dream Machine"!

I wish that chocolate was zero calories!!!

lorna.peppiatt said...

We're moving house hopefully in a month, and will need a new fridge freezer as our current won't fit, my wish is please pretty please.... Every day I also wish for chocolate too, absolutely adore the stuff....

It can't be good when your clothes come out dirtier than before you put them in your washing machine. Also, our machine has a mind of its own as only one programme works whilst the other programmes decide for themselves the length and temperature of each wash cycle. Would love a Hoover washing machine from Appliances online.

I would lve a new gas hob. I inherited mine with the house and goodness knows how old it is but it looks ancient and filthy. I have tried every cleaning product known to man (and woman) and I still cant get it clean and/or shiney. I was even told to try baby oil which I did but I think my friend just wanted a laugh at my expense. WD40 just filled the holes where the gas is supposed to come from so Im stuck with a dirty old hob. I would love the Smeg PVS750 and I will treat it like a diamond, polish it daily and make sure its always immaculate and shiney so I could see my face in it, well no, I dont like that last bit but you know what I mean.

I need a washer dryer as mine broke a couple of years ago so I would wish for the Hoover WDYN9646G washer dryer
Fingers crossed!

Shufflette said...

Would love, love, love a new fridge freezer!

angieh said...

my fridge ices up at the back constantly if I turn it up so I can't get things very cold, it's a nightmare and I can't afford to buy a new one at the moment, too many other things dropping to bits in the house so it would be a dream come true to have a wonderful frost free stylish fridge!

samantha_ripley said...

the seal on my freezer door is broken, it ices up at the bottom and melts all over the floor, cant afford to replace it but have my eye on a small chest freezer :)

emmafurn said...

Dear Fairy Blog Mother,

Like Cinderella, I work too hard,
So posh nights out, I must discard.
Continually busy, at my sink,
I can only wish, I can only think........
If only I had a helping hand....
I wouldn't look so dull and bland.
Oh to avoid the 'wash and rinse'-
P'raps then I could meet my handsome prince?
Fairy Blog Mother, I therefore wish
For a dishwasher (slim and a little swish).
With my new soft hands and posh ball dress,
Will I be the new princess?

My son dropped a can of beans on the top of my cooker cracking the ceramic top from side to side leaving me just two rings to cook for the family on. Id love the Hotpoint HUE61X Freestanding Electric Cooker in Stainless steel. The reviews are really good. It would save me getting the camping stove out when we have guests!

Tillie's mummy said...

Dear Fairy Blog Mother
I hate sob stories but really if anyone deserves a treat it is my mum, we run a pub and have the tiniest kitchen ever with a terrible old gas cooker which only works one side. My mum is just amazing and never complains but my Nan died two weeks ago and to make things even harder on my mum her husband has left her and leaves the family business on Sunday!
She is 66 years old and still working over 70 hours a week and smiling....just!
I would love to make her life a little bit easier as it seems to be one thing after another at the moment. She is just the best mum and grandmother ever and I would love to see a smile put back on her face.

Baumatic BC190.2TCSS
Free Standing Gas Range Cooker would be incredible in a dream world!
Thank you for reading x

Mine is a simple request, it is for a new fridge as mine is secondhand and so small I can barely fit anything in there. Every time I open the door water escapes from the ice box... it really is in a bad state.

daviddavid said...

I've just started to cook. I really enjoy it.Beats buying food off the shelf and so much healthier and cheaper too. To enhance my kitchen experience, i would really like to have a Kitchen Aid Artisan Food Mixer
from
www.thecookskitchen.com
it would propel my cooking into another world.

stevewizzard said...

I would like a new fridge/freezer as the one I have at present is over 15 years old.
