A Golden Ticket?

My favourite movie growing up was 'Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory', 1971 with Gene Wilder. The lickable wallpaper for the nursery walls was so cool and of course the Chocolate Room was truly unbelievable..and how exciting would it be to find a golden ticket? Right? When we visited the lolly shop last Saturday morning, look what I found!...a real 'Scrumdiddlyumptious' chocolate bar, with a chance to win a GOLDEN Ticket!

.....with all entries to be claimed by the 20th September 2010 was this a sign? This date just happens to be my birthday!! Lets open and see:

Just a little bit.....

...a little more.....

Damn it! No golden ticket :( Looks like I will have to keep saving my pennies for our trip next year...:)

p.s. The chocolate bar was pretty Scrumdiddlyumptious too....

Happy Friday everyone!!

I remember buying a few of those, be still my beating heart as you tear off the wrapper to find chocolate !!!

Maybe you should buy one on your Birthday

This made me smile! Bummer you didn't find the ticket. At least you still had chocolate! That's a pretty good prize in itself! :D
