elevenses for a fat tooth

July 8, 2009 at 10:35 am 4 comments

yum yums and teaMy husband won’t mind me telling you he has very sweet tooth.  I, on the other hand, have more of a fat tooth.  I think I could eat cardboard if it was slathered in butter.  I spotted these in M&S yesterday and how could I resist with a name like Yum Yums?  Well I couldn’t and they were.  The lovely fatty taste of a doughnut without all disappointing stodginess of a round one.

At least the mint tea helps with the digestion of yummy treats.  Even more so when served up in a lovely mug bearing a Pooh-ism.

Sunny days chase the clouds away.  A little rainbow can melt away bothers’.

note to self:  pictures taken on a dark kitchen worktop are rubbish

    tempted to try the yum yums, but with mint tea? oh dear me, no!

    I too have a fat tooth. Indeed, I get this fat tooth at night. It’s night over here. I started trying to visualize my skinny tooth – so I ate a salad with seared tuna, no dressing. Then I moved on to 15 calorie popsicles (4 of them), then some olives (keeping with the skinny tooth idea), but then came the chocolates. Good night… I want Yum Yums. They sound great.

    Hi Pablo, afternoon :o)
    There’s a time and place for both – perhaps that’s why we have so many teeth! Just think of how many chocs your fat tooth would have chomped through had your skinny tooth not been full.
    cheerio, N

We haven't even left the bedroom yet and Euan's got his nature head on for #30dayswild - pretending to be Walter the slug from Beatbugs using his IKEA tunnel! @gloswildlife #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Day 16 of #30dayswild - reading nature stories at bedtime. One of E's favourites 'The winter hedgehog'. When I said to E we hadn't really done a random act of wildness today he immediately replied "yes we did, we went outside, we looked at flowers and Luca picked up pine cones on the way to Alfie's party". Oh yes! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog @gloswildlife
