Today was “Goodies” Day!
We were awoken to the sound of a pummel on the door. The parcel postie had arrived with a box of goodies sent to us by my mum. A rude awakening, but a welcome one!
And WHAT a treasure trove!
Full of lovely surprises as well.
The list is:
4 x Cheese Twisties
4 x Chicken Twisties
3 x Soya Chips
2 x Cadbuy Snack block
2 x Cadbury Caramello block
2 x Cadbury Marble block
1 x Cadbury Top Deck block
1 x Cadbury Dream block
2 x Whittaker’s Dark Chocolate 50% cocoa Rum ‘n’ Raisin
1 x Whittaker’s bite size coconut slab bag
1 x Whittaker’s bite size Almond Gold bag
2 x Twix share bags
2 x Snickers share bag
2 x Bounty share bags
1 x Raspberry liquorice bag
I have been particularly hankering after some raspberry liquorice of late, so to see a bag in the box was brilliant. The raspberry flavour of liquorice is harder to source over here than the standard aniseed flavour for some reason.
The goodies didn’t end there. My mum had sent a second, smaller box over. It arrived later in the afternoon. It contained a book I had bought on my last visit to Oz back in 2007 – which I had desperately wanted to bring back home with me – but I just had NO room to pack it in my luggage.
But wait, there’s more! (as Tim Shaw from the Demtel ads used to say).
My mother-in-law Mozzy (real name Rita, but family call her Mozzy, a nickname) knows I’m a Whovian and collects things for me from the papers and stuff and had got these for me…
