    Thanks @Damaged_Armour, try my best. :o

    Glad you still get to work and yes, less traffic is a bonus.

    Nice having you in Chatty Tuesday tonight. Thanks for passing by. Have a good night! :D

    PS: following your advice regarding dark chocolate. ;);

    Hi @Menz199,

    How are you? Nice to see you around in Chatty Tuesday. :D

    No, we're not in lockdown at the moment. Restrictions started easing this week, so social life slowly back on the table. Although we're still wearing face masks indoors, including the office! xD

    My week's going good, thanks. :o Bloody sweet tooth, yeah. I damn (not really) the day I discovered TimTams and Whittaker's... I try to only go for the 70% or more dark chocolate (usually Lindt) and treat it as medicine, like Damaged_Armour advised. I have to be careful, I can disappear a pack of TimTams in one sit or 2 Whittaker's when they're 2x1. :p

    You got a favourite chocolate? And what's your go to ice cream too?

    That's great, I'm not in lockdown but have to wear a mask pretty much whenever I leave the house.

    Favourite chocolate for me? I love them all lol, its hard to pick a favourite and anytime I see a new flavour, I have to try it lol. Although I love most of Darrell lea's chocolate and particularly their Liquorice block, it's not too sweet and I do have a soft spot for liquorice.

    Yes I have to be careful whenever I buy chocolate blocks or biscuits, it's very hard to say just one more and before you know it. The whole packets gone. lol :p

    Now Ice cream? That's also a though one lol. But probably cookies and cream. :p

    I don't buy ice cream too often probably once every 3 weeks, but must admit to buying chocolate probably once a fortnight. I have been trying to cut back on the sweets though. They are hard to ignore though sometimes. I have been taking a banana with me to work and try and always have a piece of fruit with breakfast. So small steps. :D

    Do you have a favourite ice cream?

    Hey @Anita44, good to hear you're doing ok despite the situation. Haha, it does feel like you own the road when there's no one else.

    Hey @Menz199, yeah the masks really help to stop the spread (sound like an gov add). I haven't tried Darrell lea's chocolate, will give it a go when I see it. Yeah, I stay away from the biscuits aisle. It' never ends with "just one more" for me, LOL. Cookies and cream is also my go to ice-cream.

    Lockdowns, chocolate and ice cream... interesting Chatty Tuesday topics. Thanks all for participating. :D
