Say its not true

Get over it πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Oh πŸ‘Ž. He must be so sad. Tell him not to lose hope and try making a cake at home. I am sure there are plenty of people who would love to try it πŸ˜‰

He doesn’t cook and I’m 🀬if I will . It would never be up to standard as tea cakes are perfect πŸ˜‚

That would have been a great idea!

Aw he's not the only one!πŸ˜ͺ

Its more reading but I am not in reception so it is pointless for me right now. It is so long that I have fallen asleep whist reading some of it. But at least I am using my brain for other useful things.....like Tunnock Easter eggs or even a Christmas cake....so many ideas so little time πŸ˜‚

That is really sadπŸ˜•no tunnock eggs.

Maybe we should start a petition.... me personally? I’d like a cheddar cheese and marmite egg!!! πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

J1707
J1707 in reply to Ali_H

Better than Tunnocks πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚. I believe they do do a cheddar cheese egg or they did last year 😁

Our head ( primary school) spent the first 2 weeks back dealing with at least 50 parents complaining their children are being bullied. Lots of monitoring but Children have lost social skills and the art of play . So when so and so beat them in a race for example they couldn’t deal with loosing so told their parents that little Johnny was mean and horrible and made them cry .. a lot of work todo before educating them.( a small school 210 pupils)

Could you be creative and adapt some tea cakes ?

J1707 in reply to Oshgosh

NO!!! πŸ˜‚blummin Tunnocks are the bane of my life. Hubby just FaceTimed me from Aldi ( needed a few bits and bobs) was asking about one particular item . I spied 2 boxes of Tunnocks in the trolly . We have 5 in the cupboard. πŸ˜³πŸ™„

Oshgosh
Oshgosh in reply to J1707

We try to be disciplined only buy 1box at a time.only eat 1 at a time.As I said to husband, I could eat a full box,but confine ourselves to 1 at a time.

Next year get creative buy a Cadburys egg and attach Tunnocks to the outside or even better carefully unwrap the egg and fill with Tunnocks and then rewrap!Now I do appreciate the RA hands could make this a HUGE task but think it could be worth the look on his face!

😳🀣

As ever, I'm late to the latest installment! I could excuse it by saying I've been busy making banners and placards in case the ANTI-TUNNOCKS brigade needs mobilising! πŸ˜‰

I'm very relieved the company has shown some much-needed restraint and not caved in to your hubby's wild suggestion!

Don't let him look at their website. I looked yesterday and was shocked to see the range of Tunnocks merchandise!! Yes, really!😳😳 If you are not careful he could soon be prancing around in a Tunnocks baseball cap, woolly hat, rain poncho, keyring, drinking from Tunnocks' mugs, and much more ..... the horror, the horror!! Take a peek if you dare ....... but DON'T let him see it!!😁😁

😱 OMG you have just put the fear of God in to me . I will never ever breathe a word . He would be that man dressed head to toe in tunnocks merchandise .. oh God I’ve got palpitations just thinking about it . This must never be spoken about ..πŸ˜‚πŸ€«πŸ€ͺ😱

Kags1068
Kags1068 in reply to J1707

Quite ...... he would be the strange man in the shop that people give a very wide berth πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜…

Just wanted to give you the heads up so you can make sure he never knows such things exist! The alternative is too horrific to contemplate ........ 😳😱😱

Listen it’s not just that.Its a cleanliness thing.There roughly the only biscuit that’s enjoyable without dipping and slurping.Saves on cleaning up after us and even less soap powder and electric used to clean our tops when after we dribble
