Oh I love marshmallows ! If cotton wool tastes like marshmallows I might give it a go because it's probably less fattening and contributes to your body becoming more lycra friendly !

Have you ever bought a kettle bell in order to become fit and lean and then found it made a very useful doorstop?

Ah, you did that as well ! Glad it wasn't just me.

Have you ever had a craving for something that they don't make any more like potato puffs, pink spearmint bars, black jelly babies that are aniseed flavoured, Sutherland's sizzles and you realise you're getting old or senile cos nobody else remembers them ?

I remember when Snickers bars were Marathons and I'm sure they seemed bigger then?

Have you ever had the best of intentions creating an inspired birthday cake at the last minute only to find it flopped so you have to make a 1 am trip to an all night supermarket to purchase an emergency one? :(

I have done something similar! I've bought all the ingredients and decorations then the motivation went out of the window. I didn't go out at 1 am to buy a substitute cake though

I'd rather have Bilbo Baggin's home. Complete with resident Wizard to light the fires.

Have you ever told a telesales person you have just come out of prison and are living in a squat but yes you'd really like some of those nice windows they are selling?

I have and enjoyed myself immensely. Was supposed to be on a study day ( in my own time ). Got to Manchester and my next train was cancelled. Caught a different one and had a great day at Oldham market instead.

Have you ever wondered why you have a pear tree in your garden when you hate pears ?

I like pears when they are ripe but that is so hit and miss...one minute they are as hard as rounder balls and the next time you look they are as squishy as my daughter's unwashed netball socks which have been discovered at the bottom of her PE bag at the end of term...

Have you ever been presented with Latin homework (for the daughter to take in TOMORROW MUM) and discovered a hidden talent for this subject? (No? Me neither...)

Have you ever seen the thread about the man who died from playing the bagpipes and tried desperately hard not to snigger or post an inappropriate comment? No? That's because you are so much nicer than I am.

Ah, Latin. I managed a year of it at school because it was compulsory. I know the requiem mass in Latin but that's my limit.

Have you ever performed the requiem mass to the sound of bagpipes ?

No, but a friend of mine was sent down to the garage by her husband one Christmas Day, and found he'd not only bought her a Harley Davidson iron head Sportster, but he'd even gift-wrapped it, too!
:D
