Many thanks to David for this great gift.

PG Tips teabags - all the way from England.

They make the best cuppa !!!!

Ahhhhhhhh..... !



  1. They do make a good cuppa! Have you tried Yorkshire Tea? That's nice too!!

    I'm just having a cup of clipper for breakfast - I like that tea as the bags are unbleached!

    In response to your question, we have Ordnance Survey maps here - some are laminated plastic, but you can get them without the plastic coating! They are double the price for that though one of my maps is so dog eared and battered now that we will got for laminated when we replace it!

    There are OS Explorer maps (orange) - "With its 4cm to 1km (2½ inches to 1 mile) scale, the OS Explorer Map series has been adopted by many individuals and organisations involved in outdoor activities – from walkers to cyclists and from horse riders to climbers and water sports enthusiasts.

    Every part of England, Scotland and Wales is covered by 403 maps that include National Trails, Recreational Paths, picnic areas, viewpoints and selected places of interest. In addition, there’s Rights of Way information for England and Wales."

    and there are OS Landranger maps (pink) - "Perfect for day trips and short breaks, the OS Landranger Map series covers Great Britain with 204 detailed maps. Each map provides all the information you need to get to know your local area.

    Visitors and residents alike will appreciate the level of detail, which includes places of interest, tourist information, picnic areas and camping sites, plus Rights of Way information for England and Wales."

    I took the descriptions from the website where you can also print your own bits of OS map.



  2. There's nothing like a good cup of tea. Im rather partial to them myself. I usually just go with the Bushells. You've gone all classy on us!

  3. I like a nice cuppa too. It's hard to get decent tea abroad and that is the only thing from the UK that we miss. Otherwise we prefer to do as the locals do. I will be counting out the exact number of teabags we will need to take on hols with us this week. It makes 42.

  4. TETLEY'S for me with a slurp of semi-skimmed milk and a spoonful of sugar. But tea only ever tastes right when I am at home. Elsewhere I tend to go for coffee.
