Last Thursday I had a trip to the local Aldi, I choose Thursdays because it's the day HM Government bungs a load of dosh in my bank account, also it's the day the 'widow woman' has her hair done, so I know she won't be tagging along lol.
Any way, I got all the bits I needed and a few treats, one of which was a packet of 'ginger nut' biscuits 25pence they was!
Today I needed a couple of things from Sainsbury's, on entering the store a bloke stepped in front of me clutching a box of tea bags and a packet of biscuits,. "excuse me sir" he said, " on behalf of Sainsbury 150yrs celebrations they would like you to accept free of charge these biscuits and tea bags, you can invite a friend round for tea n biscuits on Sainsbury's" (they was both Sainsbury's brand ) so I said "thank you very much" and off I went to get me crusty roll! lol.
When I got home and emptied the shopping bag, looking at the free packet of biscuits, WOULD YOU BELIEVE IT!! It was only a packet of GINGER
So, I've now got 2 packets !! lol :-)
Trouble is, I should really cut down on these sweet treats! lol.

You can’t have too many ginger nuts.

There must be a joke in there somewhere.

Are they inferring that they think you are nuts? :/

Nothing as subtle as that.

Without wanting to put anyone off their biscuits, I have always been a ginger, although greying/whiting nowadays, and so are my nuts...

I suppose that takes the biscuit...
