Okay, okay – I know “hog Heaven” is the actual expression but I’m about to engage in some mighty “piggy” behaviour…
A couple of months ago I had an exchange with Geology Woman about what we missed from our respective homelands and what we could not buy in our respective adopted lands….
She lent towards the more practical, a certain brand & type of mascara, while my yearnings were more visceral …. chocolate – old fashioned cheap and nasty Cadbury. ( Cadbury here in the States is made under license by Hershey and it does not taste like Aussie/English Cadbury).
So an exchange was organised and I sent her the desired mascara and she sent me chocolate! *LOTS* of chocolate!
Obviously Royal Mail is saving pennies and sending their mail across the pond by sea as GW had just about finished one mascara before my choccies turned up! I love seeing the Queen’s Head on things (yeah, you can take the girl out of the Commonwealth but ….etc……..)
Every day, for more than a month, I’ve been ambushing the poor mailman at work. He was starting to eye my approach as one would view a mad, rabid woman! Today, with great flourish, he presented me with my package! He also gave me a package containing a skirt I’d ordered online and which is sure not to fit after I’ve eaten all these:
Note the wonderful rabbit photos attached to the chocolate! Rupert is my favourite!
