aibu to think this is a major perk of being one? where no-one else can see you doing it? and no-one can ask for some?

I have just melted 20g of Luscious Orange Willies Cacao chocolate in a ramekin and then dipped a banana into it and ate the lot. Chocolate all warm and runny and then solidifying and sticking to teeth

This is what it is all about and only 3 weightwatchers points

This is the life wink

I'm a SAHM to a school aged DD. and just enjoyed entire box of Daim Mikado biscuits. Yumtastic.

Owllady Tue 19-Mar-13 14:05:13

I am sat here working on the laptop like a schmuk when i could be melting chocolate. would milk with oreo melt? i have a severe lack of chocolate going on. In my defence i did buy ds one too!

I never get to sample any Luscious Orange Willies while the kids are at school. grin

JustinBsMum Tue 19-Mar-13 14:07:23

Gosh never heard of either of these. Sadly not a SAHM now so will have to miss out grin

CockyPants Tue 19-Mar-13 14:07:39

And don't forget you get to watch whatever TV you want, ie not Cbeebies!!

CockyPants Tue 19-Mar-13 14:08:15

And go to the toilet ALONE

Owllady Tue 19-Mar-13 14:09:11

I may spend all day tomorrow watching it whilst eating lobster bisque

I've just made a bowl of chocolate frosting and eaten it with a spoon grin

I'm a SAHM Mon-Weds, but Chocolate Orange Willies sounds like a luxury wink that I don't have.

I have just made some soup though, and because I have time, I was able to make it taste exactly like the covent garden on of the same flavour... completely pointless!!

I'm also doing penance for spar time by doing my DH's admin, gah, I'd rather be in the office.

My keyboard randomly misses letters... sorry.

I'm hiding this thread because I'm jealous of you all grin

I still have 2.5 years before I am free like you to enjoy orange willies! I am currently watching fireman Sam with a 2 year old rolling around on me, trying to get the energy together to have a quick tidy around before the school run.

LandofTute Tue 19-Mar-13 14:25:45

ha ha at watching Gone with the Wind while eating lobster bisque while the kids are at school. grin

TattyDevine Tue 19-Mar-13 14:26:26

Never seen or heard of an orange willie, and I live in essex confused

grin

Owllady Tue 19-Mar-13 14:26:35

they aren't real willies grin

jojane, just be grateful you are not Norman Price's Mother....<taps nose>

LandofTute Tue 19-Mar-13 14:26:46

Next time someone asks me what i do with my day i am going to say I eat lobster bisque while watching Gone with the Wind. grin

LaundryFairy Tue 19-Mar-13 14:31:38

Nice answer, Landoftute. I always tell people that I spend my days painting my nails and eating bon-bons (preferably on a chaise-longe)!

Domjolly Tue 19-Mar-13 14:31:58

Haha i just made 10 fairy cakes and ate the lot

Owllady Tue 19-Mar-13 14:32:01

well you do need a whole school day to watch it imo
with no interruptions grin

Chandon Tue 19-Mar-13 14:32:38

that sounds like such a good plan!

LandofTute Tue 19-Mar-13 14:34:30

I also read the answer
"Monday - the postman"
"Tuesday - the delivery man."
"Wednesday - Your husband."

That was someone on Mnet's suggestion for a reply to someone who was asking in a particularly sneery way! grin

I'm a SAHM 3 days a week

I'Ve just made myself a massive 3 story sandwich and watching my stash of sky plussed Midsomer Murders - no one is around to laugh at the size of the sarnie or take the mick out of my love of John Nettles

After school clubs until 4pm today as well - result!
