Tony - I'm in the middle of Dorset and can get dongle access, but in South London, with a ruddy expensive contract phone? Nada.

Sigh.

I received your nice circle box, janet, thank you!

I haven't tried Black Bullets for the moment, but Flying Saucers are definitely... weird, i can't find a better word :D but they call for another try...

I've collected some stuff and I hope to send my own parcels on thursday :)

:lol: :lol: Weird is just fine Leia! I think you have to be aged 6 to truly appreciate the delights of the flying saucer. Did I explain that the outside is made from rice paper and (in theory at least) completely edible? No harm ever came to anyone eating them that I know of...... :lol:
Very happy the parcel arrived safely :D

Just received my parcel from Sjoerd - stroopwafels, fruit cake, and what I think are humbugs and salty liquorice :D

The parcel had a hole in it :( but I don't think anything could have gone missing cos there was just so much stuff in there :D :D Thank you Sjoerd!

Will get the last bits for mine today, then they go off on Monday.

Closer inspection of the sweeties reveals that the two unknowns are a soft cinnamon sweet, and some butter boiled sweets. Lush! :D

Mmmmmm.

I've just bought a squillion packs of Wrigleys Big Red chewy.

Lush.

Oi, Tone. I did ask elsewhere but you didn't reply. I've got some vegan sweeties purchased from eBay. You wanna pack?

To be honest Bouncy, I really don't like sweets. I know it's a bit odd that I'm organising this if I don't like sweets, but no one else seemed to be going to do it.

I got some Welsh humbugs to do an exchange with mC and tried one (haven't had one in years) and ended up spitting it out it was far too sweet for my liking. Still, mC seems to have enjoyed them.

I've got another batch of Welsh humbugs if someone wants them - I don't even require anything back. First come first served. ;)

Fair enough.

OK PEOPLE, I've got 3 packets of vegan sweeties as purchased from eBay.

Anyone?

You should try your Amazon.

I got a ton of it from there. OK it costs more because of postage, etc, but I can't get enough of the stuff.
