You'll need a load of sloes and a tad more gin I suspect :sifone:

Yup - last year I went through with about 12 litres of cheapest gin, 9 toilet rolls and a two-year old in the trolley. I thought they were going to call the police again.

At a guess, the funny looks were because you had forgotten to get the angostura bitters!

Our local "Cheap Shop" sells sugar 59/65p a Kg all the year round. Shopping round might be ok if you want a ton of it, I'm happy with my local.

Think Bookers is a fairly good price considering they also deliver free of charge...had a pallet of bags delivered yesterday, 1 ton.

Some are slightly obese Kev....but the main point is i don't think you really appreciate that my TBH's are considerably longer than the norm.

Admin.....it's tea for me,not coffee,i like it sweet.

The man has no shame! first he telling us about the size of his bees 'lunch box' and now he's boasting about length as well, no wonder his has a high energy intake :reddevil:

With 9 TBH's and must'nt forget the apidea, must be a good burglar deterrant, they would land up with serious injurys trying to carry them, by my calculations 2 cwt each inc the apidea.
