Today we are going to ask everyone who visits Jammy Toast to just “Talk Shit” for the day. We ask that anyone who visits Jammy Toast leaves a comment on just about any subject they choose. Funny or sad, true or false, real or fake; we don’t give a shit as long as it is entertaining and doesn’t really hurt anyone. We ask you to do this because we are too busy to think of anything else to post – hopefully everyone will like the freedom to whine and bitch. The rules are pretty simple to explain – basically, anything goes!

Chimpton And The Paparazzi

Iam going to tell you all a little story today but there are a few things I need you all to understand before I start. Those of you who have been Toasters for a long time will know that Chimpton is not my daughter’s real name. Some of you may even remember the nickname we used to call her. The more recent members of the Toaster’s gang have probably realised that Chimpton is not a real name also. Unfortunately we had to start using the name Chimpton because my daughter attracted a rather nasty online stalker who even turned up at her home because he traced her by the nickname we used to use (it was also her nickname in the real world). So I had to go right through Jammy Toast and remove every mention of this nickname and even change our domain name just so that this guy wouldn’t be able to keep tabs on her comings and goings. Hence I cannot reveal what her nickname is but suffice to say it was very similar to Tinkerbell – after all she is very tiny and there is also another reason which will become obvious by the end of this story. I hope you are keeping up at the back…

Hello Toasters, it is great to be back… we have missed you all – well, most of you anyway. First of all we would just like to apologise for our sudden disappearance without any notice but everything suddenly fell into place for us to do the upgrades that have been overdue for some time. The more observant of you may notice that we have split Jammy Toast in half too. Here on jammytoast.com we are only now hosting posts from September 2015 onwards. The plan is to create another site which will become an archive for all our old post prior to that date right back to when we started in June 2006.

The Shop Most People Miss The Most

Over the last few years a multitude of big name companies have disappeared from our high streets, but which one do you think most people would like to see return? Walk down any local high street today and you may see a number of empty store fronts that once belonged to the likes of Littlewoods, Toys R Us and BHS. During the last ten years a number of our favourite shops have been lost but which closure do people feel the most strongly about? Well, according to a recent poll, Woolworths is the store that the nation misses the most and would like to have back on the high street. Woolies went into administration in 2009 but people still miss their Pick ‘n’ Mix sweets.

Our Granny #32

Around twenty years ago Granny started using a Windows computer which has morphed into a laptop over the years. You would think that anyone who has been using a piece of technology for that long would have mastered its workings by now but this is not the case where Granny is concerned. Back in the days when Granny first started using Windows she used to ask me hundreds of questions. This is not surprising where someone is just starting out using something new and foreign to them. Granny used to insist on writing down the guidance I gave her when I used to warn her it was better trying to remember it instead. Now, twenty years later, she has a folder which is thicker than the Encyclopaedia Britannica full of instructions and passwords for everyday tasks.

The Last Ever Affair

The other night, myself and my furry little friends sat down and watched the last ever episode of The Affair and there wasn’t a dry eye in the Jammy Toast Centre. The series started out as a story about novelist Noah Solloway’s affair with waitress Alison Bailey. It ended with Noah caught up in the #MeToo scandal as he is slapped with sexual misconduct allegations similar to Harvey Weinstein in a Vanity Fair exposé. Daughter Whitney is so mad at Noah that she bans him from attending her wedding. However, during the reception, she learns that he was greatly involved in the planning of the entire ceremony. He even trained the whole family to dance to The Waterboys 1985 hit, “The Whole of the Moon.”
