Precious Marmite ...What Else Can I say.... WIN Marmite Goodies...

Ok......... gently tiptoeing in the Twaddle door, to see what mess has been made whilst Ive been soul searching......

Bloody hell, it looks like a whirlwind has been through the place.... its no use you all partying in this place and leaving all ya rubbish and pizza boxes and dirty glasses around for me to clear up..... like I aint got enough to do, without having to clear up after you lot.... nice to see that ya never touched the marmite goodies in me kitchen cupboards though ;)..

I thought I would do me first ever 'GIVE AWAY'.... ya know, like FamilyPhil did on his blob, I know, I know, he gave away an IPod but marmite is much more precious, and ThePioneerWoman gives away real expensive pressies, but again, marmite outshines all of those posh cameras she is always giving away lol, so leave a comment, if there is anyone left that reads Twaddle that is, or a lurker, blurker can leave a comment, and I will put the few names in a bowl and pick 2 out and whomever get picked...will win these.....



oh and these...



Marmite Mini Rice Cakes - Marmite Giant Rice Cakes - Marmite Cheddar Cheese - Breadsticks - Marmite CRISP which are to die for - Marmite Biscuits (Crackers) and of course a Jar Of Marmite (pure nectar)...

Yeah all of the above in one little parcel :).... now aint that better then winning a posh camera or Ipod LMFAO..... I aint cheap ya know..... this is priceless stuff...

Those that know me here in real life KNOW my love for the taste of marmite...... I am the only person here that I know that loves marmite with a passion, not one of me maties like it let alone LOVE IT, and I even had to take a little jar with me to Maine last summer just incase I couldnt find it in the shops there, cos a fortnight without marmite would just about make me curl up and die....

Not one person at Sharkies place where we was staying liked marmite LOL..... not one of me lads like marmite, non of me maties here in life like it.... the only other people I know that likes it, NOT loves it like I do, is Toadie me matie to the left of the staples, whom I often send a little jar to, and me matie David who lives in California and whom I use to send a jar to when he lived in Alaska a few years back with the doodle army.... I think though to be honest that he use to spread it on the soles of his feet to keep them from freezing....

Ya suppose to spread it on reeeeeaaaallll thin, but me, well I love it thick and oozing..... me, well, I LOVE to dip me finger in the jar (to which the marmite sticks to like tar lol) and eat it that way lmfao....

It is true, there is no middle ground with marmite, you either LOVE IT or you HATE IT... and the adverts on the telly are very truthfull about that.... and have based their whole advertising campaign around the fact....

Have a look at this one lol..



HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA......

And this one....



And this last one..... which I find a little strange cos it looks like it was filmed on a doodle street and it looks nuffin like our British roads/streets..



The bestest way to have marmite is for breakfast, which I have every morning without fail with a cuppa steaming builders tea..lol....... 2 slices of toast spread with THICK marmite and then topped with a layer of CRUNCHY peanut butter..... it is almost orgasmic lol..... ok ok, so its been awhile for me to tell the difference lol....

If I was to ever get married again, which we all know that is an impossibility lmfao..... cos, Im a bit to much of a bloody challenge lol...... well, anyways, if I ever was to.... then I would dearly LOVE.... just once a week, or even once a fortnight (see I aint greedy lol) for the man in me life to make me marmite soldiers with 2 softly boiled runny eggs (for dunking the soldiers in) for breakfast one morning..... maybe a Sunday, a day when I could stay snuggled under the duvet LOL........ see just how low maintenance I am LMFAO....



I dont want much out of life now do I, just marmite soldiers in bed with a cuppa tea whilst snuggled under the duvet LMFAO......

Every so often marmite bring out a limit edition flavour marmite..... just look at these beauties..



The first one was brought out for Valentines day.... the second one is bog standard marmite and the third one was brought out for St Patricks day....

The passion I have for marmite is up there with me love for me chickens.... it would be a hard choice if I had to choose one or the other LMFAO..... Ive even spread marmite on cooked chicken before lmfao.... sorry Janet :)

I DO have a marmite cookebook and a little zippy character sporting a LOVE IT - HATE IT T-shirt... and of course I have a Giant Marmite Lunchbox, which is shaped like the new plastic jar of marmite squeezie..... but to me the plastic jar of marmite squeezie just dont cut the mustard with me, I love the little brown jars, thats me, always the tradionalist lol....

Anyways..... enough rambling on about something in me life that I love.... so I will leave ya with this old advert from 1974.. thats Zippy, from the kids telly programme back then and the little character I have sitting on me dresser wearing the T-shirt......



So, go on, leave a comment, either good or bad, cos ya know you SO WANNA TRY THIS TASTE OF PARADISE in a jar, oh and in a rice cake, cheese, biscuit, crisp LOL....and if I only get 2 comments, then ya both win lol

Now you know where I get me Cyberworld Nickname from - MarmiteToasty... thats me..

Its a sunny day here today, about time after the lousy summer we had here..... a sunny post for a sunny day....... fanks for sticking by me, ya just like sticky marmite :)

ADDITION - If ya wanna read all about the most precious thing on earth, more precious then diamonds, oil and David Cassidy then go read this....

http://www.accomodata.co.uk/marmite/marmite.htm

X

ps....... the makers of marmite should sooooooooooo be giving me a lifetime supply of this stuff for loving it the way I do lmfao......

pps... on the knee front - Had me consultant last Tuesday, he put yet another drain in.... still only have 80 degree bend, still having physio 2-3 times a week, still in extreme pain, still completely knackered and drained by it all..... but, Im back to work proper with all me nippers now that schools are back, as hard as it is, I have no choice, someone has to pay the bloody mortgage..... life aye..... :)

Marmite.. I looked it up, and can't believe this stuff could taste good! I am always game, and never judge before trying... I'll try and find some at health food store...Good to have you back- It's good to know you respond to naked threats.. :)

Elaine said...

Oh. God.

I only came by to say hi! But if I win, I'll donate it to the local children's ward, or maybe use it as a bribe for hubby to move out, ok?

I suddenly feel rather sick....

ciara said...

crikey, a bunch of marmite-y goodness *crosses fingers, eyes, toes, legs, and anything else that i am NOT the winner* LMAO

Phil said...

We still have plenty of Marmite left from the last batch, and I suspect it will still be there for years to come. I'll take a page from your playbook and say that if I win, send a big jar to Toadman with my compliments.

Hope you're feeling better... Did the little moose package arrive?

Can you believe we might have a Vice President who likes to kill moose?!?!?!?! It's horrible, I know!

Akelamalu said...

ME, me, me, me, miss, please miss me, me, me - I LOVE marmite! I stick my finger in the jar too, it's delish! I use it when I make gravy and I have no meat juices too. Have you tried making a drink of it, you know like Bovril only nicer? I didn't know you could get all those marmity things, I've never seen them in Morrisons!

I'm crossing my fingers, toes, legs and eyes hoping I'll win. :)

Totty Teabag said...

Yummy umami...Marmite rates being stored in the love cupboard in this house, along with the Twiglets and the tamarind cubes...

Mona said...

God! She is one surely obsessed with the marmite stuff!

LOL! But I LOVE the devotion!

What you have not one not two, but FOUR boys!
(FAINTS)

& I thought one was too many...

toadman said...

I WANT IT!!! I'm almost out of the squeezy marmite you sent...still have about half a jar of the champagne marmite you sent around Valentines day...crisps are long gone (but I'd LOVE a GIANT BAG OF THOSE! AND THE LAMB AND MINT CRISPS AS WELL!!)...never had the rice cakes or the breadsticks.. but me mouth is waterin..

I love Marmite! I really do! And you know what? Every time I put it on anything, Liam (our youngest) asks for some! GO MARMITE!

Intense Guy said...

Ooooh ME ME ME ME ME ME ME ME!!! I wanna win!

:) It's great to see you back!!! I had a big laugh at the Marmite advert you thought was done in Doodleland. You know what? The blob! was filmed in Doodleland - and that particular scene with the screaming people was filmed in a town just 10 miles down the road from me!

Since 2000, the town of Phoenixville, Pennsylvania has held an annual "Blobfest". Activities include a re-enactment of the scene in which moviegoers run screaming from the town's Colonial Theatre, which has recently been restored! And in 2006, I joined in the screaming. :)

Frum Helen Back said...

I wanna win too. I love to win stuff. And I'll give it Toadman since I think he lives in my area across the pond. I missed your posts Marmie and I'm glad you're back.

SisterOne said...

OK, I guess I'm one of the few doodles who has actually TRIED Marmite; did it in the company of a South African gentleman, and I ate it politely.... BUT, if I win, I'll send some to my brother Toadman (yes, he's REALLY my brother...), and the rest to my South African friend.... "None for me, fanks, watching my waistline..."

Dumdad said...

I'm a complete Marmite addict. I've even written and drawn a cartoon about it on my blog:

http://wwwtheothersideofparis.blogspot.com/2008/01/marmite-luv-it-or-loath-it.html

I had Marmite on toast last night - the memory makes me salivate!

And it really is a love or hate thing in our household: French wife and my son say just the smell makes them sick while my daughter and I love the stuff.

And forget all that thinly spread nonsense. Lashings is the order of the day.

I'm a Marmite maniac and there is no helping me . . .

LadyStyx said...

YAY!!!! You're back!!!

*spreads tons of flowers
( @>--->--- ) and Ziploc baggies of those malteasers around (to protect them from the ants) to welcome you back*

*places name in jar with iggy's nick in parentheses*...

If I win I want ya to send it on to him. Im sure he could use it for bait to lure squirrels in for a nice photograph.

*HUGZ*!!!! Welcome back hunny!!

Tori_z said...

*Adds name to the "people who like Marmite" list in hopes of recieving all those marmite goodies*

My Mam LOVES the stuff too. I don't think she loves it as much as you (I don't think anyone does actually, lol) but she does absolutely love it and has it quite thick. I'm sure if I get to win the goodies she'll be down here in a flash helping me to enjoy them. :)

(BTW, she thinks your nickname is "neat!")

Anyway...

Sorry you're still having so many problems with your knee. Hope they get it sorted in time so you can be pain free by Christmas (obviously sooner would be better, but Christmas is a good sort of goal, or I think it is).

*hugs*

BTw... I got a couple of your e-mails and replied to one of them. Did you get it?

JBelle said...

If I win, mine goes to Toad.

goatman said...

Sign me up. I'll try anything onced.
Liver is a problem though. UUggghhh.
Glad you had a good time.

80° from straight or from sitting-bent 90°??

laughingwolf said...

no way i'm even going NEAR that stuff, mt :(

good that you're improving, if slowly...

i'll have some new scars on my left arm, but the worst is still my chest, feels like it'll burst every time i sneeze....

Word Tosser said...

Ok, throw my name in the bowl, I went to the site to read about it. Doesn't sound that bad.... also, I wonder, if it has the same side effects as our yeast.. See a Dr. told me 30 years ago, that the side effect of eating yeast is that it puts out a smell which no one can smell, but mosquitoes don't like it. So had my kids eat a pinch of it. Told them it was cheese. When they got older and wiser.. I told them bites or yeast their choice. They chose yeast. It works.. so wonder if Marnite does too..
So here I go.. throw my name in the bowl.. wordtosser to win.. lol.

Sue O. (aka Joannie, SS) said...

Thanks for the informational website because I was too embarrassed to ask about such a precious commodity-what in the H-E-double hockey sticks is this stuff?? Brewer's yeast paste? What does it taste like? You should be as strong as Popeye! That's like super B vitamins in a jar (or whatever). Glad yer back in the land of the living...sorry about the mess.

In_spired said...

Mel...you have my e-mail address. Please send me your mailing address!! I'm always reading comments where someone has sent you something. I MIGHT want to do the same sometime....from good old Texas, USA!

Y-E-S!!! I WANT MY NAME IN THE DRAWING!! (even after watching the first video!)

So glad you're feeling better!!

Lisa said...

Well, the videos didn't come through, but I can only imagine!! I don't know if I like Marmite or not! I tried it once as a child, and I'm pretty sure it tasted like TOE JAM!!

Hey!! I could send you some SPAM, if you like! I grew up on that stuff... yummy! Too salty for me now, but oh! Did you know that Hawaii (where I'm from) consumes more SPAM than anyplace else! True!

But now they make SPAM in flavors like teriaki and that's just not right!!

Glad to have you back!

Idaho Escapee said...

Ohmygawd..."Paradise In A Jar"...sounds too good to be true...but I'll take Paradise anywhere I can find it...that is, if my grip is strong enough to take the lid off. Marmite? It almost sounds like "marmot", a rat-like animal that swims around in the water. I've never eaten a marmot steak. And I've never tasted 'marmite'. So go ahead. Send me a jar. Give me some of that English goodness, that I can't live without. I dare ya. Hold the anchovies!

JeanneH said...

Hay, Marmie!!! It's so good to have you back. Don't you EVER go AWOL on us again..I would love to win some Marmite...never tasted it or even knew about it until I met you...I'll bet I would like it though, I like a lot of stuff my family doesn't like ... even LIVER ... even that smokey Lapsang Souchong tea ... but, well, if I don't win, I may ask Phil to share some with me ... since he has so much. I don't think you can buy it in the States, can you? We? But I would sure like to try it ... even if I didn't win the whole lot, I would be satisfied with one jar, just to taste it, you know ... So, put my name in the bowl ... Jeanne H in Idaho. xoxoxo

Digger said...

Count me in! :-)

PinkAcorn said...

Marmite...is that anything like chocolaty hazelnut stuff called Nutella? I've never seen it here in the states.

Pamela said...

Maybe you should spread marmite on your knee. I betcha it would cure it.

I found Marmite at a local store -- and tried it. I liked it sorta okay with cream cheese on toast.

I think it is an acquired taste.

Pamela said...

ps. loved the commercials. Made me sit back and laugh hard enough to almost throw my chair off balance.
(fat butt)

Silver Valley Girl said...

Ever since Raymond Pert had his live marmite tasting on his blog, I've wanted to try it. Put my name in the bowl!!!

Robin said...

Good Lord, I'm glad you're back, even if you are just twaddling on about Marmite...")

PEACE said...

Oh, here I am almost midnight in Vegas, suffering from the terrible effects of chemo and nothing tastes good, nothing sounds good and I am starving! I see this Marmite stuff and I don't know what the heck it is and all of a sudden I'm sooooo hungry for the stuff. Is it jelly? I don't know, I don't care, but the rice cakes and the stuff on toast, it is sounding so good, oh please pull me name and send it quick!

Mei Del said...

we all lurve marmite in this house, except perhaps for the cheffie one ... oooh i hope i win! and if i don't i'm gonna make myself a marmite sandwich...

green libertarian said...

Long list of promises, I know, but I do need to get that jar of Marmite you sent to me over to Toadman...

Peace be with you, Marmite.

xo

Coral said...

Hello, welcome back!

I love especially the Marmite with cheese, I can finish a jar in two days!

So, if you put me in the draw, and I win you can send the ordinary Marmite to Toadman and the rest to me as I have never seen so many marmitey goodies in my life!

Slip said...

Never tried the stuff, but never tried vegemite either. I would most likely enjoy it. I like yeasty bread but I am not too fond of yeast infections.

Mei Del said...

oh yes, i thought i'd share with you my first memory of marmite - stirred into a bowl of pure white rice broth - heaven

Lady in red said...

mmmmm I lurveee marmite

jochrisbryan said...

yum, marmite on toast, marmite and cheese sandwiches for me if I win.

The Rotten Correspondent said...

You know I love you, so I'm commenting to tell you how happy I am that you've come back.

But please, don't draw my name out. Whatever you do...


PLEASE. NO MARMITE FOR ME!!!!

Anonymous said...

It is nice to see you writing again, and with a contest attached at that. I would want Toad to have mine should my name be picked, he seems to have a love of it that I just never acquired. I hope you are doing much better these days and your smile is back. The Stickman

OrdinaryShark said...

I figure Toad has about a 50-50 chance at the stuff with everyone conceding there's to him. Yeah, yeah, he can have it if my name is chosen too.
Keep working on that knee, Marmy.

OrdinaryShark said...

That, of course, should have bee "their's"

Intense Guy said...

I just realized that even someone as inept as me in the kitchen can make marmite soldiers. I mean - toast is toast unless its blackened charcoal.

Cutting toast into 2 cm strips I can do... you might get a soldier or two now and then with a lil' blood on him letting me use a knife and all that but I can manage and with practice even get good at it. :)

Jen said...

If it's good with crunchy peanut butter, I'm sure to like it. :)

JeanieSpokane said...

Ooooo, I love it that you are back, Marmie, and all the info about Marmite. uh, I am hoping that since there are 43 people in front of me that, you know, you won't really notice me in the throng and won't accidentally send me something that looks like it came from my beefy mechanic significant other's toes. eeeeuuuu.

Love and hugs!

Angela said...

me please...

Elizabeth said...

That first commercial--!!! Here I was all warm and "toasty" at the idea of the mom nursing her baby and then BLECH!!! I'm lucky my girls never did that after I'd had a curry! ;) Nice to see you!!!!

little wanderer said...

oops so sorry for the mess i left behind!!!
'my mate marmite" the ads have sure been funny and yep marmite toast and COFFEE for breakfast is the way to start the day!
it sure is great having you back x x

~:*:*:Pixie:*:*:~ said...

Okay.

Um... I thought you meant we would win YOU... not the stuff in the jar.

I dunno, sounds yummy to me!!!! (Of course I eat peanut butter and bacon sandwiches... or orange marmalade and hard salami...)

SO FREAKIN' GOOD to see you back Mel.

I love you...

ChrisB said...

As a marmite lover this was a great post. In the past I have done a couple of marmite posts and so has my daughter (Sam). What did you thing of the Guinness and Champagne marmites. It took me ages to track down the Guinness ones (I was sending a few jars off to the states). I was ringing Sainsbury's and I think they thought I was mad. I too have the cook book. It's great you are back blogging
PS I now have a knee problem which I'm going to have to go to the docs about. It only started playing up a few months ago but is getting worse this last couple weeks!

Deb said...

Welcome back! I have never heard of marmite before but after reading comments from some of the others I am not sure I want to try it! Toe jam? But others seem to enjoy it - so what the heck - I would try it if I had the chance. Hope your knee continues to heal - take care!

Bina said...

Okay, I have NO idea what Marmite is, or what's it made of, but man they sure use it to make a lot of stuff! And if it's good enough for you, (maybe) it's good enough for me. Are you shipping to the states?

Sorry about the knee. Damn I was hoping it would all be okay by now. And I don't know how you keep in such good spirits.

Did you find your soul in a jar of marmite? LOL

JBelle said...

okay. let's just tally up. No, I mean RIGHT NOW. How good of a friend am I?

I saw a chicken handbag tonight and literally bit myself to keep walking and not go in there and buy it for you. Happy Birthday Girl. You so totally need a chicken handbag!

Catty Ax Lady said...

Alrighty. First I came by because you stopped by my blurb and said nice things about my new baby. Then I went to Lisa's blurb because you came from there and because she says nice things about my new baby, but she said this stuff tastes like toe jam. Now I'm not quite sure who to believe!! I'd google the stuff, but google sometimes is a really bad thing.

Nice of you to do the giveaway though. And I'm sorry your knee is still causing troubles for you...hopefully the range of motion will improve quickly with the physio.

soul pumpkin said...

it would appear that one should check out the Marvels of Marmite, but alas, i've arrived late to the party...oh drat and bother....

Mei Del said...

haha i got jars of marmite everywhere! - the other day we were sorting out suitcases from the loft and we discovered some we'd taken on holiday and brought back with us, there was still some left at the bottom of the jar, one of the kids must have thought it was too good to leave behind.

wish you better marmie this sunny thursday x0x

Mei Del said...

ps there's a special prezzie for you over at mine xx

Tori_z said...

Hmmm... Marmite on white chocolate Maltesers... That could be interesting...

I don't have any white chocolate Maltesers at the moment, but I do have some Penguin biscuits... And, of course, I've got Marmite... Hmmmm.... I wonder what that would taste like....

*Raises eyebrows at Iggy's comment* Certainly sounds like a proposal to me! Can I come to the wedding? LOL!

buffalodick said...

Oh, and those ads... funny stuff!

Within Without said...

So were you the breastfeeding mom or the hot girl on the date? Or both at different times?

I think you should have shown us a pic of you in your Love it or Hate it t-shirt...

I have no idea how marmite tastes. Is it sweet? Sour? And why do they call them "soldiers?"

Glad you found your soul and that you're back, Toasty Warm.

Sorrow said...

Okay I wandered over here through another blog, and i am now wiping the tears of laughter off my face.
bless you..

Lora said...

(((((( Mel )))))))...it's 7p here and I wanted to send you a note at 6p and forget. I hope I'm not too late in being the very first one to wish you a very Happy Birthday. It's Friday already in UK !!

ps...I've still got the marmite jar you sent me years ago. And still afraid to open it...:-)

Tori_z said...

*Notices the "happy birthday" in Laura's comment*

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!

I didn't realise... I must have missed it being mentioned? Or does Laura know through some other means?

Either way, if I'd known I'd have sent you a card and a pressie....

Cindy said...

I haven't a clue as to what Marmite is, but I'm sure glad you're back!
How about explaining to us "Doodles" just what Marmite is? Until I read this last post of yours I guess I thought it was something like Marmalade.

jolie-jordan said...

Marmie, Thank you so much for your kind words and thoughts. I am feeling a whole lot better and have been so pleased to have so many friends that care about me and my healh.
And guess what...I have never tasted marmite. I had never heard of it until I started this wonderful friendship with you. What does it taste like that might be like something I have tasted over here?

Guess what some lady from the flower shop brought me today????
I thank you, yet again. It really made my day. I was a bit weepy before that lovely gift came. All yellow and white and reminding me of a bright summer day...and wouldn't you know...it's 80 degress here today and sunny so it ended up being a happy day afterall.

I'll write more later when I am feeling more flush. Love you girl and I am so lucky to have you for a friend.

XXXJolie

I sure am...grade A prime coward. Although Im sure my hubby's dog might eat it....she's a tad less picky than me and my hubby.

**HUGZ**!!!

meggie said...

Marmite sticks! I dont come here for a day or two, & your site has gone raving mad over marmite!!
We always had it when we were kids in New Zealand. Now we live in Oz it is more common to see Vegemite.
I still like it.

Maggie May said...

I just LOVE Marmite & its good for you. But YOU have gone right over the top with it!
So glad you are back.

AuntieM said...

All right, I'll admit that my first exposure to Marmite was through your blog. I wondered for weeks what exactly Marmite was, which led me to research it on the net and find out for myself. I actually did see a jar of it on the shelf at a grocery store here in Colorado a few months ago and said "one day I'll get some and try it" but I haven't gotten around to it yet. However I'm still game...

So glad to see you back on the blogs, and thanks so much for the hilarious videos in your post!

Have a wonderful birthday Marmie. Try running naked through the neighborhood so the neighbors will know you're still around.

Jen said...

Happy, happy birthday from all of us to you, we wish it were our birthday so we could party, too. Happy, happy birthday, may all your dreams come true. Happy, happy birthday from all of us to you.

Happy birthday and lots of love, Marmie!

LadyStyx said...

*wanders in*

Did I smell birthday cake?

I DID!!???

Happy Birthday hun. May all your marmite wishes come true!

**HUGZ**

JeanieSpokane said...

Happy birthday, Marmie!!! (You say it isn't - so if it isn't, Happy Birthday a day or two early, or a week early, or even several months early - I celebrate for the entire month and am now celebrating for two months just because. So maybe we can be twins and celebrate our fine selves together for as many days as we wish. Happy Happy!

Love you!

Jeanie

ciara said...

((((mel and anyone's for a good fondle of a cockle)))))darn it...i forgot it was your bday. i swore to myself when i found out last yr that i would remember. i suck at remembering. happy birthday, friend...you have been a constant thru the gloomies, the blog world, and even though we haven't meet, you are a good friend. i love ya, matie xoxoxo i was sposed to send you and queenie something thru the mail and am slacking. speaking of which, i'm not sure what could be worse if i'm to go into the raffle...the marmite or the boobie prize of cockles. i shudder to think LOL

Dumdad said...

Bon anniversaire!

Auntie Om said...

...should sooooooooooo be giving me a lifetime supply...for loving it the way I do

Yes, if only life worked that way. Was "fair", in balance, for all we extend, give, love.

If this reality was up to me, you would have been more than rewarded your due by now, my dear friend. It is way beyond a question of your "deserving" it. As we both know, however, control is an illusion.

You can add my name to the potential winner bin and, if I am selected, I will send it back to you, its rightful owner. Now if you change to giving away beetroots...well, that could be a horse of a different color.

Precious Marmy, indeed.

JeanneH said...

Marmie...a very Happy belated Birthday to you...if I had known, I would have handmade you a special card. We know from birthdays that life goes on...and we should not look back. There is nothing we can do about the past now, only look to the future with hope. And so, my wish for you in this next year is to have a turnaround in your health. Keep a positive outlook, and do your best, girl. And remember, there are many people who are worse off - I have to tell myself that everyday when I start whining about my own pain. Love you girl...JeanneH in Idaho xoxoxo

soul pumpkin said...

Happy Birthday to you,

Tori_z said...

No you're not too old. I've said it before (to others) and I'll say it again... "You don't start getting old until you're 60, and you're not classed as old until you're 80!" So you've got a little way to go yet. :)

Tori_z said...

Oh yeah... The penguin biscuit with marmite on it was pretty good (I dunked the penguin in the jar of marmite) so the chances are the white chocolate maltesers with marmite on them will be pretty good too. ;)

Within Without said...

Marmy:

51 is the new 41 (or whatever that cliched rot says). OK, it's not rot. It's TRUE!

You're still younger 'n me. Go with it! You're the farthest thing from an old hag I can think of!

MarmiteToasty said...

~(((ToriZ)))~ I seriously dont think I'll make it to 60 LOL...

And oh my, I bet the penguins tasted oh so good dipped in marmite.... I dipped an 'After Eight' chocolate in marmite this morning an it was orgasmic LOL..xxxxx

~((((within without shake it all about))))~ well its been a heavy year this past year lmfao.... get away with ya, I so aint younger then you... dont say your a manhag LOL ;) *kotc* so you know Im just joking.....xxxxx
