All the pie shops must be in a frenzy of activity, and as for the cake bakers....

My son is trying to learn to love tea, since it's offered everywhere he goes. Then when he had his dental cleaning back here at Christmas, the dentist told him off for acquiring British tea stains on his teeth and told him to stop (after she cleaned him up).

Them and the local Kebab shop.

Got an ok price I think (allowing for me using my local airport) About 700 bucks via Dublin.

You could have floated an oil rig on the amount of tea I drank over there. He should tell his dentist to bog off.

Ahhh, kebabs.

That's a very good price. We really lucked out going in October last year though, including travel insurance it was just over $600.00 each, which is insane since we're usually spending upwards of $900.00 in the summer.

So long as he doesn't take sugar in his tea the tea stains are mostly harmless.

I fill a suitcase full of PG Tips teabags. In fact I empty them out of the boxes and put them in plastic bags, that way I can get more in the suitcase.
