to be so happy that I live in a place where a very nice Chinese takeaway can be delivered to my door after a 1 minute phone call on a Sunday night?

and is indeed on its way now.

I know its not brilliant Sunday night fare but dh has been at work 8.30am to 8.30pm today.

I have given the dc breakfast, lunch and dinner (hm spaghetti carbonara, fresh fruit salad to follow as felt guilty about lack of vegetables thing).

I have also done the usual domestic chores (washing and pegging out and bringing in), tending to pets, playing cards with the dc, going to shops, and emptying and cleaning our bedroom which is being decorated starting tomorrow. Oh and posting a few times on Mumsnet.

Single handed.

I deserve a takeaway.

YABU! because I'm on a diet, it's nearly lunch and I'd kill for a Chinese takeaway

TantrumsAndBalloons Mon 22-Apr-13 11:18:33

The kebab shop at the end of our road, (3 minute walk) have my telephone number stored in their phone. I dial the number, they say oh hello tantrums usual order? I say yes. They deliver it in approx 12 minutes. The delivery guy doesn't even bother getting on his moped thingy, he just walks it found the corner. I also have Chinese delivered from the Chinese takeaway 2 minutes in the other direction

Mmm we are getting chinese tonight. Crispy shredded beef in cantonese sauce, sweet and sour chicken, fried rice and prawn toast.


KatoPotato Mon 22-Apr-13 10:46:04

SM you for got the curry sauce! MorrisZap It's usually a 'white box special' - where you can add Chicken Baws.

I would like to contribute 3 things to this discussion

1) you can put veggies in carbonara, I make it with onions, garlic, mushrooms and peas which is four servings of vegetables and completely negates the entire box of cream cheese

2) I have a huge jar of MSG and I love it. It is a flavour enchanter, like salt. It is not bad for you. What is bad for you is that it is a 30 second additive so "once you pop you just can't stop" if you know your eating it you can consciously regulate yourself.

3) while your ordering Chinese I would like duck in orange sauce, chips, crispy greens and spring rolls.
Do your do a carry out too? wink

MorrisZapp Sun 21-Apr-13 22:10:44

SM, I've had the chips/rice combo in England but never seen it up here? Is it all the rage where you are? Edinburgh here.

AnyFucker Sun 21-Apr-13 22:10:32

I dunno, Snatch

I order kebabs. I get kebabs. I have very little interest in how it happens.

I had chicken and donner in a naan with spicy sauce with salad.

it was yummy < garlic burp >

We live behind a Chinese chippy. DH taught their son to drive so we get mahoosive portions. We don't go as often as we used to because we're dieting but still treat ourselves to the occasional chicken / beef with mushrooms or oyster sauce.
