No. 88 A parcel came this morning ....

A parcel came this morning
It was long and thin and hard,
I really was excited,
Even though there was no card ...

I tore off all the paper,
And there there was revealed,
A metre of Jaffa cakes,
Oh how I laughed and squealed ...

Thank you so much Dhamaka, and yes, I love my alternative greeting :D

I'm pleased you like it

*wipes sweat off brow and relaxes

Mandy - I was going to send all my friends one (including you) but it's 3.5cm too big for affordable postage... To put it another way, outside the UK the postage costs roughly ten times the value of the contents!

(edit) what's Nige doing to you Maggie?

Mandy, they are just great, I had to use all my powers of self restraint not to open the parcel before photographing it ..... there must be an outlet in the US for Jaffa Cakes (and their ace Christmas Special) .....surely?

This size packet is quite rare even here Maggie - I think I'm going to write to them and ask them if they'll make it 90cm long for next year. They really would make excellent not-Christmas-cards

D, Nige is just holding me down (with just one hand, how feeble am I?) .... to stop me getting at the Jaffa Cakes ......

MaggieD says:

Well, the real size of the box is 93cms (I just used I metre for the sake of the rhyme) ... you could probably resize the box without comproming the size of the Jaffa Cake ......

Dhamaka NLI and going back to work says:

But the box has been made so that individual boxes of jaffa cakes fit inside it..

(no prizes for guessing how I know)

MaggieD says:

True, but if you repackaged it so that you loose the cardboard packaging of individual boxes then you will more than likely get to the 90cm mark ....
