    Nope- you can keep the freckles and smarties, the bananas, the sour drops and even the coconut balls. All I want is the mint leaves.

    In fact I think I need some today - write note MUST go shopping


    BTW Hamish - Where are the jelly babies who live in the ginger bread houses?

    Yep, we got into this from a German friend - they're big into gingerbread houses in Europe.
    Inside not filled with lollies unfortunately, though no reason why it couldn't be

    These look fantastic....good move on the dental appointment...might need to consider a gym membership too. lol
    I had one given to me as a present from a child in my class a few years ago, beautifully wrapped in cellophane. Made the fatal mistake of leaving it on the table, and our dogs inside.....came home to the base board and cellophane on the floor....not one thing else remained!
