I'm making another Malteser cheesecake this weekend and I learned my lesson last week.
Now 1 large box gives you 360g and costs 10p less than 3 small boxes that also give you 360g. But 360g, as I discovered last week isn't quite enough; I need about 400g.
To my way of thinking I therefore need 2 large boxes because it is cheaper proportionally that way.

It struck me the other morning - yesterday I do believe - that I need to be more like a trampoline.
When things - words - are thrown at me I need to boiiing them straight back and not absorb them like a sponge.
Trouble is I never think of an answer until 2 o'clock the following morning. So I need a plan.
A cunning plan, as Baldrick was fond of saying.
Other trouble is that the people who are saying things don't actually listen. (Or maybe it's just me they don't listen to.) So perhaps the answer is just to say, 'Shut up.' But you and I both know I won't do that. We know that I will struggle to get a word in edgeways and if I do manage it will get my words mixed up and end up making as much sense as a half-witted turnip.
Oh fol di rol.
