I like Jelly Babies A LOT. I could disappear a whole pack in less than half an hour. Easily. I always eat the legs first and my sisters and I used to say that was so they couldn't run away. If you were eating the head first it was so they "couldn't scream for help".

At lunch with the kids yesterday, one of the little boys had a gingerbread man. The others found it highly amusing when the gingerbread man lost his legs so I told them it was good - now he couldn't run away. The little boy eating the biscuit looked at me, thought for a second and then said, "Yes, he can. He can just sit on a horse and it will carry him away. Or he might use his arms as leggers."

Of course. I'd never have thought of food using arms as leggers. I'll just have to start eating my Jelly Babies whole.


  1. Seriously making me realise just how little I want to leave my kids in July. I LOVE the way kids think.
