These chocolate fudge truffles are flavoured with whisky. This is our favourite after work drink but when I bought a bottle that Dave did not like I had to find an alternative use for it. Adding it to chocolate seemed like a great idea. And it was! If you are not a whisky fan, substitute with the tipple of your choice.
Debt Solution Companies seem to be grappling for business right now. Last week I answered our land line at work and the person on the other side requested to speak to one of my members of staff. When I told her he was not in, and asked if I could assist, she said no. I managed to get confirmation that it was a private call, before she hung up. We have caller ID on our phone so I used True Caller to see who had phoned. And once I had established it was a Debt Collector, I blocked the number. Within minutes of me doing that my cell phone rang. This time it was for me, asking if I wanted assistance getting out of debt? The woman on the other side was quite affronted when I told her that her call was annoying to say the least.

She was even more surprised when I told her that I was not in debt. And that I could not fathom out why she was calling me as my credit rating is extremely high. Of course, she would not reveal how she got my mobile number. And then if my telling her off was not enough, she asked me to please refer people I knew in debt to her. I think she was even more surprised when I told her that I did not know anyone in debt. They are taking their chance, calling people at random. And don’t think for one minute that their assistance comes at no charge! They make a nice profit off helping people get out of financial trouble? So, another number blocked straight away so that I am not hassled in future. Do you block unwanted callers?
