.....for DD (18) to make the school sarnies for tomorrow on the basis that she wants chocolate, and I cant be arsed?

Thats half the remaining box!

She thinks she should be allowed to finish them off...should I offer them as a bonus? wink

How many sarnies? Are any of them hers?!

How many sarnies to be made?

All lunches made completely would warrant the rest of the box, I would say.

It cost me £2.50 to get the 12 year old to vacuum today whilst I endured soft play birthday fun.

3.5 sarnies.

None are hers as she is off tomorrow and said "Please dont wake me, I am off college tomorrow", which I never do!

And its not making the whole lunches, just the sandwiches.

As it was, she made them but I had to wrap them as cling film hates her apparently! I offered her the rest of the box but she said no as they taste like toothpaste. Then she ate them anyway while telling me about a girl on her course who went out with her mum on Saturday and they both avoided getting arrested despite punching a police officer in the face. We agreed that they were lying grin

Sandwiches done, she got her choc, everyone happy smile

You should have given her the whole box!!

I've had this argument with DH before. I get very carried away with After Eights so I ask DH to take the box away from me or I am very likely to eat the lot.

He thinks 6 is sufficientangry

I insist that nothing but 8 After Eights will do.

So please let your DD have at least 8. It's only fair.

Oh she's already eaten them. Good for hersmile I want one now

Gladysandtheflathamsandwich Mon 30-Nov-15 01:03:31

Dont worry boo, she scoffed the lot!

I am trying to find a suitable replacement for After Eights as I am hard core on the Nestle boycott. I can live without everything else but I cannot find anything that comes close to their After Eights! Aldi ones are ok, but frankly, they just dont cut it sad

Oh good. Thanks, I can go to sleep happy now.

Gladysandtheflathamsandwich Mon 30-Nov-15 01:21:23

So can she!

Impossible to understand after eight limiters. You don't really understand them till you've eaten a dozen or so and then there's hardly any left so finishing them is the only reasonable course of action.

Ah but are they in individual tiny envelopes? And do you put the empty envelopes back in the box? I used to hate finding a box full of envelopes and thinking there's still some chocolate in there. So disappointing.

look, forget the sarnies, the main topic here is that Aldi do after 8's!

what are they like, are they as good as the real thing

Definitely a lie. I always get arrested when I punch a police officer in the face.
