Say if you went to the chippy last night and had chips, and tonight you fancied making homemade chips, right? That's not like having chips twice in two nights, is it?
Does Ted like chips? You could always use that as an excuse. It works for me.

We'd never given Oliver chips, but he just decided he liked chips one day and started nicking them off our plate and stuffing his face. I think liking chips must be an innate human need rooted deep in our psyche since the times of prehistoric.

He does like them. Good idea.

And yeah, it's natural to eat chips. Indeed, they tell me they're good for you. I bet one day a big hairy man came home dragging a potato over his shoulder, and the rest is history.

What's their pick'n'mix selection like?

Pockets Filled With Matches are no more, but we still have copies of our e.p. 'If Time Heals You' for sale, if you'd like one

Pretty good actually. The 13 amp fuses are a bit on the chewy side for me, mind.

I am getting quite excited that there is a B+M Bargains opening next to Wilkos in Shef later this week. Coupled with the Heron/Fulton axis and the 99p shop, I don't need to go into town proper anymore...

Fultons are tremendous. I got a big jar of gherkins from the one in Crookes the other week for about 60p. Also £1 bottles of Young's bitter from Didldidi on Chesterfield Road. Live the dream.

B+M's logo looks like it says Bum Bargins. That's what my mum calls the one in Rotherham...

I love Wilkinsons, sometimes I go to the one on London Road as part of my nice 'me-time' afternoons in the school holidays and buy household cleaning products I don't know how to use. Then I go to Cafe Euro and have a large coffee. Then I go to Waitrose.

Oh I love Waitrose, they sell potted shrimps. And olives with mega-hot chillies in them. And Crabbies. And loads of other nice things. Yum!

(oops, another Nottingham invades the Sheffield thread, you shouldn't have mentioned chips!)

Yeah, well maybe we'll start on about potted shrimps in your thread. Then you'll be sorry.

I only ever get at the most one answer at quizzes anyway so it probably won't make any difference to me how hard it is. Unless all the questions are about Doctor Who and indiepop.

We have a great shop up near where I live called 'Job Lot'. They sell booze. They have been known to sell bottles of Landlord on 3 for a £1...
