Hampered by the snow.

I know it's only December 1st, but it feels like Christmas has come early. We haven't had anywhere near as much snow as other parts of the country, but have had just enough to make the garden look like a Christmas card, well it did before big builders in big boots trampled on it while taking down some scaffolding. Toni still managed to find some fun in it though.

Then this arrived:

I won't bore you all to tears with the details, let's just say that The Woolwich, who are now owned by Barclays, are going to need more than a food hamper to make things up to me. It contains:
  • 1 bottle red wine
  • 1 bottle white wine
  • 1 bottle Cava
  • 1 jar of pickled onions (don't they know I make my own?)
  • 1 jar of pineapple and mango chutney (I'm suspicious of it)
  • 1 jar of orange marmalade with whisky (no actual whisky)
  • 2 jars of strawberry conserve with champagne (no real champagne just the cava)
  • Various cakes and biscuits
  • Fudge, nougat and praline chocolates
  • Box of Yorkshire teabags (?)
  • French vanilla ground coffee (??)
  • Pheasant Pate (!?!?)
I like my food, but I'm not that easily bought.

  1. Awwwww I wanna frolicking Staffordshire Bull! We are still a bit sparse on the snow although Bud did go for a slide in the tiny bit we had at lunch time!

    Toni is soooooooooooooo cute.

    And like your 'little op', the boiler, bathroom, SCAFFOLDING seems to be a BIG JOB!

    And I can't imagine what The Woolwich did to you to warrant sending a hamper!
