If you haven't already done same, if you ever want a really nice day's outing I would certainly recommend Blenheim Palace. We thorough enjoyed the tour which ended with a lovely afternoon tea on the terrace!!!

Patricia, those pumpkins reminded me of when my children used to carve them. Taking the tops off and taking all that mush and seeds out before making a face, the stuff used to be everywhere......soooooo messy :D

Elaine - Know what you're talking about!!! I wonder if that is why Jillian is just decorating the steps with them rather than having the children carve them out?
I can never get over how we used to do the same with "Swedes" now, that took some effort, those things are as hard as Hades!!! :D I hate having to peel the darn things let alone carve on them!!

Elaine :D :D :D I keep everything in a second Fridge I have in the Garage with the fervent hope "Out of sight, out of mind!" :D Just waiting for the large jars of Quality Street they get in BJ's, will have to visit there one day this coming week to see if they are in because once the "Brit Girls" know about them, there is a "Surge like a huge Tidal Wave!!" of first come first served!!!! :D

I have had trouble trying to buy piccalilli for a couple of weeks, that and Weetabix. I will put them back on my delivery list at Walmart again and hopefully have better luck next week. :cry:

Oh dear Patricia. That’s IT, I can never emigrate to USA if Club biscuits cost 4 dollars For 5!
I have the same problem as Elaine....that lot wouldn’t see November never mind Christmas.

:D :D :D You Ladies are a Hoot!! Bee, I truly believe having to pay quite a price for each item, it then seems to instill the necessary discipline needed to "Savour the Flavour" :D Anyhow, it does for me!!!!
By the way, would love to have just an estimate of what each item costs across the pond. For instance I paid $1.99 for each Crunchie bar, Flake and small Cadbury Bar. The Horlicks was $6.99.

Not the best quality photo
This was on the TV programme, North West Tonight.
I paused it and took a photo. Thought that it was a great shot of Liverpool.
