The Slummy Mummy Gets Something Yummy!

Bob has replaced the card in my camera, and now it seems to be working again. So I was able to take a photo of the parcel which arrived this morning - a belated birthday gift from Liz.

IM003416 "Don't read too much into the choice of book, just thought you'd find it amusing" read the card!

The bottle is organic citronella spray, from Neal's Yard - for discouraging insects [Liz knows I react very badly to bites]

The packet is 'instant' rice pudding from a German Supermarket - translating the back using Yahoo Babel Fish, it claims "Wonderful Benefit for Everyone"

The sweets are from her Istanbul holiday [I guess that makes them Turkish Delight] According to the English list of ingredients on the back they contain; "glucose, fig, strength, means, hazelnut, coconut, pistachio, linseed, dry fruit and water. All products which are within this packing are 100% naturally and healthy"

Not sure what "strength" and "means" are!

It is SO exciting to get a package like this in the post, with all the items packed neatly in shredded paper - and Liz always produces such efficiently organised parcels. Thanks daughter!
