Default Shippers coming and.......

The shippers are coming on Monday and I just wanted to know if there was anything you wished you had brought with you, we have time to rush out and stash it in the container before it leaves.

Anything???????

I must admit I have hidden a jar of Marmite in a draw - sssshhhhh

Stoof is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: Shippers coming and.......

we'd developed a wish list of stuff to stash when our time came (it hasn't yet!)... but when the removal companies came to quote they all said it's a big no no.... please someone tell me we're ok to stash stuff?? it's just the idea of finding silly things we put away months later that appeals rather than dreading running out of camp coffee or something

although OH will DEFINATELY want some bensons cheese XL crisps in there!

Heinz salad cream is one thing I shall be sneaking into our container....when we visited back in April we had some very odd looks in the shops when we asked for salad cream! We were given sour cream!

O...and definately Minstrels & Galaxy...although I think the Banoffee pie Dairy Milk may just about make up for it!

You can get loads of English stuff from supermarkets, different supermarkets stock different things, you just have to keep your eyes open.

Our local Woolworths sells both HP sauces as well
