What a Country!

I anticipate the advent of Cadbury Creme Eggs ALL YEAR. The time to celebrate has arrived!! They are finally in stores again!

I can't help but have England come to mind as they have Cadbury Creme Eggs abailable ALL year. What a Country!! That's what I call CIVILIZATION!!! Here I am pictured in Bath outside the Cadbury shop. I've only been to England once, 5 years ago, but for many reasons, including year-round Cadbury Creme Eggs I am eager to go back! Of course the castles and cathedrals and ruins and literary history are cool too!
PS As I scanned this photo I noticed I was holding a bag. Although it was 5 years ago I remember what I bought, because it was a significant purchase at the time. Any guesses? It may help you to know it was late June 2003. It's something everyone was anticipating at that time.
PPS If you click on the picture it will enlarge - thus giving you a better view of the bag - AND of the precious egg. Hey! Don't laugh! I take my chocolate very seriously!

NO QUESTION ABOUT IT!

It's not a Tesco or Boots bag so I'm guessing WH Smith bookstore - maybe a Harry Potter book?

Heidi said...

I am SO impressed! OK, which one? :-)

(You sound quite familiar with Bath!)

I believe it would be the Harry Potter book that is currently in your house. Am I correct? :)

Heidi said...

Well, technically, yes, but that rather reminds me of Cliff Clavin's response on Final Jeopardy of "Who are three people who have never been in my kitchen."

Order of the Phoenix.

I love the UK, but not so much for chocolate. Marks & Spencer is my favorite store....

In May, we'll send you some chocolate from Switzerland :)

Heidi said...

COOL! I'll be looking forward to that!

Yes, you got it! It was The Order of the Phoenix.

PS The chocolate, by which I mean the year-round Cadbury Creme Eggs, was just a happy finding. I went, of course, for the history, the castles, the cathedrals, the museums, the literary settings, etc.

I don't know why I'm such an anglophile, as my heritage is Dutch and Portuguese, not British. I may reminisce a bit and post a few of my favorite things like the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey, the Rosetta Stone, York Minster, etc. The Bronte's are my favorite authors, but I didn't get to see Haworth when I was there. I hope to visit again and spend time at Haworth and the surrounding area.
