Am sure ye huv heard it aww before, the 'its always been a dream' patter but its true. As a wain I always knew one day that id work fur myself and huv my ain business, I guess ye could say iv always hated being told wit tae dae. So aye, ye could say this has always been a dream but a never woulda guessed the dream wid end up covered in chocolate.
Iv always loved chocolate, I mean who disnae? its always held that special wee place in ma heart. It disnae talk back, disnae judge yer bad decisions and it helps cure yer fear efter a night oan the sesh. Oan ma road tae adulthood I worked in catering, restaurants, factories, bars.. pretty much everything associated with food/drink and hospitality.
Then I became a maw.
As a young mum, that role came so easy, its everything I ever wanted but having everything ye ever wanted comes at a price. Im no ashamed tae admit im still struggling mentally, I have terrible anxiety and separation issues, meaning returning tae work was impossible.
So then I thought, wit am I good at? wit am I experienced in? wit dae ye love? que...Yer Maw Sells Chocolate.
Then Coronavirus happened. Everything I had planned, prepared, studied & practised was put in jeopardy but that's just it, life itself is exactly like a box of chocolates because ye really never know what yer going tae git.
Sometimes ye have tae just dive in and hope fur the best & here we are, a new completely raw, unpolished Glasgow based business, nae bells, nae whistles, nae fancy patter. Im so proud to be Scottish & im so incredibly proud ae what i have achieved.
We hope ye love it as much as we dae.
