I am going to steal the words of Robert Browning for today’s post:
This extract from Robert Browning’s poem prompted me to consider the small everyday things I miss: decent tea bags; Cadbury’s chocolate (actually made by Cadbury and not Kraft as it is here); aerosol deodorants (who really has time to wait for their deodorant to dry); M&S and John Lewis…..
Aside from this “fluffy” list of things, that yes I do acknowledge that I could and have managed to live without, some days being abroad you simply just miss “home”. I suppose ultimately it is a case of I say tomato, you say tomAYto!
I had really hoped to fit in a short trip to England during March but for a number of reasons the timing and schedule didn’t fit and my trip has been postponed. I am though noisily optimistic that I will fly over during April. And, given that now we are properly into Spring and my wardrobe is definitely in need of a little seasonal refresh, what better place is there to shop? Whilst clothes and shoes are or should really not be the main motivation for my trip, while I am there, it would be quite simply wrong not to support the local economy just a little!
