Marmite Winners - Drum Roll Pleasssssseeeeeee....


Ok... Its a little after 10pm here in jolly old England, its been the most glorious day weather wise.... I think we might be having our summer now at the beginning of Autumn... dam fickle Britain....

It took me yonks today to write out all the names of those gagging to win the marmite goodies.... all on pretty coloured paper and each with a punched out dragonfly next to the names LOL....

And NO dam skankie hat for my competition maties..... oh no..... I put all your names in an antique blue and white striped 'Cornish Ware' jug..... I have 2 of these and I have a passion for jugs, as those of you that know me will know... but I also have a deeper passion for blue and white Cornish Ware jugs..... this one is worth about 40 quid which in doodle terms is about $80... all me little bits and pieces of antiques like me jugs and me many clocks are me nest egg for when I get old, ya know, I will have to flog off a jug to buy food one week when Im old and frail.....



This is the pile of names ready to be put in the jug...

Anyways..... I placed all the pretty coloured name tags in me jug and pulled out five... dont get to excited, I aint made of bleedin money.... BUT.. I did think that maybe I would choose 3 winners and 2 boobie winners.... the first 3 will get the precious marmite goodies and the other 2 will get a little 'british' surprise from me......

So.......drum roll please..........



SOUL PUMPKIN
CINDY
HELEN FRUM - who bequethed the prize to Toadie..

and boobie prize winners who will receive a jar of cockles *giggling* are..

SUE(ss)
ELIZABETH

Except...... as regards the marmite bits and bobs.... Ermmmm.... I ate most of them over the weekend lmfao...... well it was me birthday weekend...... so I will not be able to post them off on Monday as promised.... the winners will have to wait until Wednesday, which will give me a chance to nip into Tesco Tuesday Evening when Jacob is at Trampoline club, and replenish supplies LOL ..... go on, call me a greedy cow and I will deck ya LOL....

So if the above would kindly email me your real addresses.... I'll send the heavies in whilst you're at work and clean ya homes out LMFAO.... just joking.... I post off ya goodies on Wednesday morning....

email me at... marmitetoasty@yahoo.com

And Ive just got to thinking that there was soooo many that would of loved this precious gift of toejam opps I mean marmite.... so if anyone really wants to have a tiny sample sent to them, please also trust me with you addresses and everyone that emails I promise to send a tiny single portion sample to each of ya......

I wont be buying them, I will nick them from the garden centre cafe that me and me matie Sharon often goes to, we have seen them in a wicker basket next to the single marmalade portions in the cafe LOL..... so, if ya really wanna try the most precious taste on earth then just send your address's....cos we can nick as many as we need.. I promise to guard your addresses with me life.....

So, congrats to the winners, now aint that better then winning an Ipod or a camera, you just wait until it arrives you will wonder how you got this far in life without marmite..

Enough Twaddling for a Sunday evening....

ffs i don't want you to be going down the criminal route just for a few sachets of toejam *eyes roll* toe jam, indeed!! you always make me laugh toasty

MarmiteToasty said...

~(((mei del)))~ well, I dont consider it criminal activities LOL we do it all the time... me and me maties call it more 'picking up a sovenier' LOL - after all, the little sign in the cafe says 'if you have toast, help yourself to marmalade or marmite'... does it say anywhere on that sign about having toast in the cafe NO it dont, and I always have toast for breakfast..... so, its a sovenier *giggling*....xxxxx

Cindy said...

I never win anything! I looked this stuff up on Google and I really think I'd rather you keep the prize size one and enjoy it yourself! But, thank you anyway. I'll take one of the pinched samples instead-just as a souvenir from my friend. And now I suppose I have to go look up Cockles and find out what those are...I have a sneaky suspicion that they are somehow related to Rocky Mountain Oysters...

Catch said...

Its ME Marmie...IM back..lol. what the hell is cockles anyway???? I see you been having a ball as usual!!! LOL.....

The Fool said...

Late for the drawing...but good thing, I guess. All I need is to develop a Marmite habit this far off the beaten trail. Where would I turn to if I was jonesin' for Marmite in the middle of winter? Not a pretty thought. Happy Birthday, Marmite Toasty.

:)

Anonymous said...

Little steps add up, good luck with your knee and all that it has been doing to you lately. Something is on the way to help you I hope, again with the tiny steps and someday you may look back at all this and smile. Good health to you and your contest was quite the fun. The Stickman

jolie-jordan said...

Ahem...I had to delete this the first time when I saw all of the typo's and mis-spelling that was going on.. so here is my next try. (LOL...for real) if it wrong this time...I say deal...suck it up and don't laugh too hardily. (S)

Damn...I don't believe I missed your Birthday. Too caught up in my own drama. I feel so bad. You never forget anything. So sorry but let me say it now..HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you and I still want to kick your horrible parents in the ass for not letting you know just how special you are. I have cried on many of my Birthday's too. Those childhood hauntings have a way of slipping in at the damndest times.

The beautiful flowers (from you) are still alive and lovely and sitting on my kitchen table where I see them several times each day.

I can see why the lady at the floral shop was impressed by your call and order. I am impressed too. Flowers for me from England as if just having a friend like you isn't gift enough. Maybe I'll be famous now and it'll hit the little local paper that I recieved flowers from England.

Smile...

We live such a small town life here. Think "Cabot Cove" from the "Murder She Wrote" series without the ocean and great lobster and Jessica Fletcher-aka-Angela Lansbury. My fantasy Mother.

Yep...you can nip me a sample of marmite. I simply must try it. They should put you on their payroll. And I'll be gracious and say congrats to the lucky winners.
So I said it...now I won't feel so petty.

I'm so pleased that you enjoy my art. Ain't it just like me to suck up compliments?

Of all the things my Mom could've gifted me with why did it have to be heart disease? Oh well, best to just play the hand out one is dealt with and not blubber about it. Truely I am feeling mostly pretty fine. A bit of dis-ease goes a long way.

Get it? Well if you got it run with it...that's what I used to tell my kids when they were young. I don't think they ever really got me. Heck half the time I am left in wonderment.

Is wonderment a word? I like it...kind of makes me think about Disneyland or Oz.

Anyhow my humor, though sparse, thinks it's cool that dis-ease is disease and disease leaves me with dis-ease.

Me to You Mel...Me to You. "Happy belated Birthday to you...you young thing."
