After waiting a lifetime, it, has arrived. It being having reached the age when it seems my friends and relatives think that not one, no sir, not two or even three madam , no, not even four but five yes folks five
tins of biscuits is exactly what I might enjoy over Christmas. I think it's a conspiracy. You see all the biscuits came from female friends/relatives who are , lets say , well: to put it bluntly, not skinny.
Either.
1. They think I'm too skinny.
2. They think I like biscuits.
3. They like biscuits but I never have any when they come around.
4. They plan to fatten me up, so we all look the same.
5. They plan to eat me at Easter.

I think the latter.

It might be more a case of "what do we get for someone who's already got (nearly) everything, that has a chance of being used and that looks fairly substantial in the wrapping paper without costing an arm and a leg?"
We've never had biscuits, not even shortbread from the Scottish contingent, but we do get coffee - boxes of Whittard's assorted coffees, which either taste of catpee or are so strong they could be used to tar the road, and, one year, a box of bottles of horrible syrup flavourings to add to your coffee.

6. They have been given tins of biscuits but are watching their wight and think "I know! I'll give them to someone else as a present" Wink

It could be that, Ron, or it could be as Shakey says, 're-gifting . I do like the tins but I rarely eat biscuits, so there'll be plenty for when people pop in for coffee. I was just shocked at getting what is usually reserved for granny.
