foreign goods

Brian's been blogging about funny foreign stuff so here's my contribution!

The coffee is from Spain and is just the thing for a post-prandial pick-me-up, while the can of "refreshing water' was purchased in Japan.

My all-time fave was a bar of chocolate I bought in France called Crap! ah - le plaisir de crapsiller. I ate it and it was indeed a plaisir. I should have kept the wrapper. There also used to be some French Lemonade called Shittt but they've stopped making that now which is a pity.

BONKA and SWEAT - yep, well, I guess they do kinda go together... But ending production of Shittt is not just "a pity" but also "shittty"! If you had a can of that and a CRAP! wrapper you'd have a very funny photo!

uncovering old lath and plaster

This morning this was a blue-painted wall which collapsed in less than two minutes in two almighty thumps revealing all this lovely lath and plaster work. This surely hasn't been seen since 1879 when the house was built and is a rather beautiful piece of handiwork. Sadly it will all be stripped out and replaced tomorrow with something less interesting and which probably won't last nearly as long.... but I am reliably told it has to be done.
And me and the builder are listening mainly to The Silver Seas.

Chelsea has the best hats but Tavistock has the best cakes. I spent more money at the Tavi show...
