Get a pack of ginger nuts and take them out the pack and keep them all together (like a log). Whip up some double cream and completely cover the biscuits with it. leave them in the fridge over night. The next day, the biscuits will have absorbed a lot of the cream and would have turned into the most amazing scrumdiddlyumptious moorish cake ever !!

It's well delish !

You lose approximately 1g of grey matter for each year over the age of 40 (apparently).... that makes you to be running very low these days Jambib, with Dr B not far behind.

Not nearly enough apparently, or you would have learned that we are much more superior in every way than women. A woman should be kept barefoot and pregnant - and not be heard. That they even dare compete with men is beyond their station.

Anyone else notice he is only his lairy because he is behind a screen a squillion miles away from me? Where I can't give him a slap. Although he may well enjoy that anyway....  ;D

P.S Before you FOG me, lairy is a British term that means, well, lairy.  ;D

The only place they should be vertical is the kitchen.
