I had some presents from Mrs K and little knappster. I got a very nice bottle of single malt (from Mrs K Wink ) and the obligatory boxer shorts, socks and chocs from little knappster. Mrs K also bought me a bike helmet as mine is getting old, but the retailer didn’t deliver it in time so that’s still to arrive. No Landy bits unfortunately but I’m happy with what I’ve got. The in-laws gave me some beer money so that’ll get spent on Landy stuff! Very Happy

Are so called "large" eggs getting smaller? They used to be the tight fit in my Land Rover egg cup, now they're quite loose!! And no, the egg cup hasn't grown.

It’s like chocolate bars, Alan. They’re getting smaller as a cost-cutting exercise (or egg-cercise... Wink Rolling Eyes ) Or in the case of toblerone, the triangles are spaced further apart. Evil or Very Mad

I’d be having a word with the chickens over the egg sizes. Smile

More like furniture castor wheels I would have thought.

My wife bought a multipack of waggon wheels earlier this year. We hadn't had any for years and she fancied one. I couldn't believe how small they were Sad I was so upset I had to eat the whole pack in one night - just in case the sight of them upset me the following morning.

Thanks Paul. Very Happy

I couldn’t eat a packet of wagon wheels in one go. Just the thought of how big they used to be would put me off! Smile

Does anyone remember the size that monster munch used to be? They’re now mini munch I think! Rolling Eyes
