This will blow your mind......or maybe just mine....and Timmo Young's.

Those of you not acquainted with the Aussie delight that is the Tim Tam, let me enlighten you and blow your freaking mind!
Those in the UK,during my near 7.5 years in the UK,I was told that the 'Penguin' was a very close substitute.It is not.It is like drinking Passion Pop after being introduced to the delights of Champagne.Having stewing steak after trying Wagyu beef......I've actually never tried Wagyu beef yet,but I'm told it's a comparison.

The Tim Tam has cult status in Australia.It may sound simple.2 choc biccies,think like a bourbon cream cookie component.BTW why are they called Bourbon creams? I sense no alcomohol? Anyways,2 of those cookies sandwiched with a chocolate cream and then dipped in chocolate.
Simple yeah? Au contraire.These little delights are simply O-gasmic.Even better when you do a TIm Tam slam,where the opposing corners are bitten off and coffee or hot chocolate are sucked through leaving a gooey,chocolatey,heavenly mess.
When I left Sydney we were getting our minds around the DOUBLE COATED TIM TAM.It came out apparently,due to consumers requests for thicker chocolate for a Tim Tam slam.
Then,I went to the supermarket for some a bits and bobs and what I saw!!!!!


Excuse the poor picture quality.Felt deranged enough taking photos on my phone,let alone a proper camera.
We have normal,double coated,double coated chewy caramel,normal chewy caramel,dark choc,dark choc mint,black forest,honeycomb and I saw creme brulee somewhere.
Sadly,it's been too bloody warm for a Tim Tam slam.

Hello sweethearts!
I am now (FINALLY) writing this from Sunny SYDNEY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SQUEEEEEEE!!!! Those of you following me on twitter @msfrangipani will know all the ins and outs of the last few months,those of you that don't do twitter,well sheesh,where do I start?
Firstly I must apologise to my twitter followers.It's been a total roller coaster thanks to the in laws.I thought I was really lucky and blessed to have great in-laws.Turns out I was soooooooo wrong.Now,if someone hurts me I become a fierce beeatch (not the glamorous fierce,the vicious kind) but if someone hurts my loved ones,especially my Scotsman or my wee sister I become a fcuking vengeful FIEND!
So,sorry if my tweets have been a little bitchy.Social networks turn me into a passive-agressive beeatch,and well it's fun to taunt stoopid people,esp if they are shit stirring,mixing little beeatches who follow me on twitter.ha!
It's a long winded story,but let's just say some people have nothing better to do with their time as they are lazy a*holes who can't be bothered to get off their arse at the age of 22 and find a job,hence they feel the need to mix and stir with other people's live and emotions.And it is true,there is ALWAYS a good twin and an evil twin!
The Scotsman's family made our last 2 weeks in Scotland the worst when they should have been the happiest.We both cried veritable oceans,and it all came to a head on his VERY LAST NIGHT when his own twin sister waited till his last few hours to tell him she wasn't coming to our wedding.He begged and pleaded and still she wouldn't budge.I think there's a lot of jealousy coming from his sisters and niece,but c'mon,that's your ONLY brother and uncle?!?!?!?!!?!?!?!?
So we spent 48 hours (that's another story) with all this negativity and general crap going through our heads.
I'm really trying to work on just cutting them out of my life and my head but I just can't forgive the hurt they've inflicted on my Scotsman.Now I know I'm biased,but he is honestly the sweetest thing ever.He doesn't have it in him to ever hurt anyone and is too nice for his own damn good sometimes.Maybe that's why his twin is such a beeatch.MIAOW!
Right,I must stop that.Any tips on getting over angry vengeful thoughts please let me know!It's really not me and I hate that they are able to get me so angry and bitchy.
We have now been here 2 weeks and it's been absolute bliss.We've spent nearly every day at the beach.I've probably walked,swam and generally been active more in the last 2 weeks than I have the last 7 years!
We've hardly drank and are eating so uber healthy it's ridiculous.Fingers crossed it keeps up,but this hot weather certainly helps.
Anyways sweets,I just wanted to keep you all updated and let you know I haven't forgotten about this wee corner or the getting healthy issue.
I will be regularly updating this and will post up some photos soon.Till next time.
