Pointed Thoughts

You know you have a good husband when he'll drive from the Scottish border to a Boots store a hundred miles or so away on the wrong side of the road to bring you home your favorite English bath products and good but cheap European skin creams. He knows he's got a good wife because you won't post the picture on a  lot of girly cosmetic review sites because you just realized that it has your bayonet collection in the background

  1. Bayonet collection?!!? What bayonet collection? :) That is a good man indeed! Please tell me that there is a stash of Cadbury made in England somewhere out of the cameras focus?!!? Awesome stuff!

  2. Bath products? The Bayonet collection should be up front to highlight the Bath Salts. Yes you do have a good husband and yes he does have a good wife.

    Jelly Babies resurfaced with the new Doctor on the "Mummy on the Orient Express" episode.

  6. To everyone interested in British products: britishdelights.com is a site that has all kinds of British products that will be shipped to your home. And they have your shower gel, Brigid and yes, Sarah they have your Cadbury's. It is a neat site.

  7. Sarah - he picked up some Cadbury (which is often different from the kind you find in the US I think) for me and my friend Jane A.

    old okie - we are both blessed I think.

    c-90 perhaps -)

    Meredith - I don't normally list posts advertising a business but I have bought products from your family run US company when his trips over to the UK were infrequent and your selection and the promptness of service was wonderful! Brigid is not my first name so you may not recognize me as a customer. I LOVE the Garibaldi biscuit and a lot of the Brit stores don't have them, but you always do. But I've not seen the shower gel on the website, I looked under gifts? Is it in another area?

  8. Actually, I'm just a shopper, too. I'm glad to hear that they are a good company. I have list of things I want to order a mile long. LOL As to where your shower gel is, look under Food then under Toiletries.

  11. A lucky woman indeed! Cadbury in the US is made by Hershey but the Cadbury in the UK is made by Cadbury. So much smoother and creamier! In between missing that, marzipan from Spain and good tea I'd almost be cool with my sister living in the UK again...as long as she left my nephews here with me! :)

I started this blog so the child I gave up for adoption could get to know me, and in turn, her children, as well as share stories for a family that lives too far away. So please keep it friendly and kid safe. Posts that are only a link or include an ad for an unknown business automatically to to SPAM..
