It’s alive!

Snapshot: It’s alive!The Husbeast’s Pebble has been out of juice for months now. We seem to have lost the cable somewhere in our travels, and even though we tried purchasing a replacement, the poor Pebble has remained offline. Until now.

I finally managed to find a replacement charger, this time one with a stand. It’s not the most stable thing in the world, but at least it gets the job done. The weird thing is that it’s only the cable that went missing. We came back with all the chargers that the cable would plug into.

Thankfully, the Pebble works with both Android and iPhone. I was worried we were going to have to buy a new iWatch a little sooner than we could afford! πŸ˜€

Special Hot Chocolate

The husbeast has been under the weather recently, so when he asked for a hot chocolate, who was I to say no?

I haven’t quite mastered the ability to use cocoa to get an actual chocolate flavour, so we keep a tin of Carnation Hot Chocolate in the house. It’s quick and tasty, and easy to dress up.

You can make the mix with hot milk rather than water if you want a really creamy texture. The other option (that I use) is to toss a dollop of heavy cream (aka 36% whipping cream) into the mug.

I also add a dash of cinnamon for zing. If we’re spending an evening in, a little Irish cream will go a long way.

And voila! Special hot chocolate!
