10 of 365

The Doctor and I are Sunday Club co-ordinators at our church. It basically means we oversee the children's work for the kids aged 3-11; we put together the rotas, plan the materials, and order the necessary resources. (It also means I do a LOT of photocopying!!) Once a month we lead the group for the 9-11 year-olds. And one of the games we played on Sunday 10th January led to this photo:



I promise it made sense at the time!!

And on that day I ate:



a Tim Tam. Oh, YUM!! Many, many thanks to Amy, who I 'met' during the Learn Something New Every Day class, and who has become a good friend-by-email :-) If it wasn't for the fact that we live just a little too far apart to easily meet up - I'm in the UK, she's in Australia! - I have no doubt we'd be good friends 'in real life', too! But I so enjoy our chats by email :-) Anyway, she very kindly sent me a little package for Christmas, and inside were two beautiful wooden bookmarks (both of which were immediately pressed into use) and a packet of Australian biscuits called Tim Tams. They're a bit like Penguin biscuits, but MUCH nicer!! The one in the pic was the penultimate one, and because I love him *very* much, I gave the last one of all to The Doctor. They are one of my new favourite things though :-) Thanks again, Amy! x

Gemma* said...

Sian said...

Ah, now I know what a tim-tam actually looks like! I've read about them but never seen one until now. Nice photo!

Maria Ontiveros said...

I adore the perspective in that picture!!! It's fabulous!
Rinda
(no tim tams in the US, as far as I know)

My Kiwi pal always raves about Tim Tams!

Lizzie said...

Yum... nice Christmas pressie! Sounds as if I might have to go to Tesco, next time the car goes to the garage(prob Monday, it's unwell!).
I was trying to work out what "Twinkies" are the other day. Finally resorted to asking a "Tweep" friend on Twitter. They are those cakey bar things, with goo inthe middle - like Wall-E gave to his pet bug in the film. Finally I know what all the US guys are on about!
Tim Tams look so nice... where is my choccy supply, I need some!

Kelly said...

Do you do the tea trick with your TimTams? Apparently that's the secret!

Amy said...

I'm so glad you have enjoyed the bikkies Mel - it is indeed a big problem to live so far away from you!
As I've said before - I won't inflict vegemite on you but, I'll have to find something else uniquely Aussie to send over .... lamingtons won't send well, neither will pavlova and I can't go poaching wildlife - will work on something for a later date :-)
Oh, and thankgoodness for the internet in the meantime!

Amy said...

Oh, and another thing - I'm sure it is likely that some sort of version of Tim Tams have made it to your shores ... afterall there are so many of us in your part of the world .......

ok, I stopped by for a blog visit, and now I am craving chocolate!!! I have never heard of Tim Tams before, but they have my mouth "watering"

bite both ends off, stick it in your tea and suck up the tea through the tim tam. You will have had your very own tim tam slammer. I LOVE these things!!!!
