Salted Chocolate Biscuits

These salted chocolate biscuits are so good that I would make them every weekend. They have the perfect texture and taste amazing, if I say so myself.

I am always so wary of purchasing an item online. Last year I read a travel post comparing two types of travel bags. The LugGo one seemed perfectly good to me, and was within my budget. And on the plus side, they offered free delivery to South Africa. I decided not to order it when we went to The Netherlands in case it was not as perfect as advertised. The company is based in London and as we were going there in June it made perfect sense to get it before that trip. If it had to be returned I could do so from London, and save myself the cost of overseas shipping. The delivery time was listed as 8 to 10 days so in the first week of June I placed my order. Two weeks later it still had not arrived!

Being concerned it might be a scam, I had used PayPal for the payment. I had done so because I thought the refund process would be simple. But it was not! I first had to lodge a query via PayPal which was sent to the seller. I then had a very short time frame in which to request the refund. But I had to wait a week for them to respond. Thankfully the week was up before we travelled to the UK as I would not be able to do anything from there. After eight days I escalated the claim via PayPal. I was then informed that the seller had 30 days to respond. So began the waiting game to see if I would get my money back. I was also told that if I failed to reply to any queries, the case would be resolved in the seller’s favour.
