What is This?

Now I am finally on the mend, I can muster up the energy to say my piece about something which bothered me earlier this month.

Seriously, what is this? An Oreo milk bar in what is supposed to be a British chocolate maker pack? I knew it was a huge mistake selling Cadbury’s to Mondelez International (formerly Kraft). Their promises to keep this brand British were empty, and amongst other things, this just proves my point. How dare they take out Fudge for this nonsense?

I for one HATE Oreo. It is absolutely disgusting, and so is Hershey’s. Hence the reason when I am in the US, I hope and pray my lovely friends will send British chocolate to me, and never eat chocolate unless they do. It is also the reason I continue to send British chocolate to my beloved best friend who moved to the US some time ago.

Cadbury’s no longer taste the same as it used to. It’s oily, and ‘bitty’ since Mondelez International (formerly Kraft) took over. They have managed to ruin a great product, which is generally what happens when one company has a huge monopoly.

‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ comes to mind.

Now it is broke, they need to fix it back to how it was.

When You Send a Friend a Package…

…and it turns up later than expected like this.

Completely empty.

When You Send a Friend a Package...

The note on the bag added insult to injury, as it states they regret the ‘damage’ to the mail. What damage?! All the frigging contents were taken!

I cannot begin to stress how annoyed I am about this. I mean, really? I know life can be hard at times, but this takes the biscuit.

The likelihood of the person(s) who stole the contents to be reading this is very slim, but I will say this anyway, “You’re a flipping knob. My friend was looking forward to her creams and British chocolates. Next time, rather than stealing, write to me at the return address at the back of the package. You never know, I may actually send you some.”

Maybe it’s Because I’m a Londoner…

I recently purchased these keepsake boxes, purely for their look. As a Londoner, I love anything to do with the beautiful city I was fortunate to be born in. I am also extremely proud to be British (despite a number of things going on which I really am not happy about), and love the Union Jack.

I remember singing this song in school:

‘Maybe It’s Because I’m A Londoner’

Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London so
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go

I get a funny feeling inside of me
While walking up and down
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love the London town

Maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love London so
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I think of her wherever I go

I get a funny feeling inside of me
While walking up and down
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love the London town

“When I’m away from London, I can’t help thinking of some of my favorite places. Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, and late at night, the fog that settles softly over London Bridge.”

I get a funny feeling inside of me
While walking up and down
Well, maybe it’s because I’m a Londoner
That I love the London town
That I love London town
That I love the London town

No matter where I am in the world, I will always be a Londoner. I will always be British. ❤

New Year, New Look

When I left my abusive (ex) husband, our son had nothing. I had nothing.

However, hard times are changing into better times, so I decided to revamp my image – but only once I had made sure my son had everything he needed – and then some.

I got so excited to see this package arrive. It contained three dresses which I managed to get in the sale at almost half price.

I love the fact this company ships worldwide (and are legit). So no matter where I chose to settle down, I can place an order and continue my fabulous 1950’s look! 🙂

Don’t Stop Movin’

What with being British and all, pop culture is the ‘norm’.

I for one am a fan of cheesy pop music and this song is no exception!

S Club 7! ❤

(I can see it there in your eyes, yeah)
Let it flow, stop the waiting right here
On the dance floor is where you gotta let it go

Don’t stop movin’, can you feel the music?
DJ’s got us goin’ around, round
Don’t stop movin’, find your own way to it

Ain’t no mystery, just use your imagination, let it take you there

And just go with the magic baby
I can see it there in your eyes

Let it flow, stop the waiting right here
On the dance floor is where you gotta let it go
