As you know, I fell in love with a little something called Walker’s Roast Chicken Crisps when I was in England last month. I brought home a little multi-pack of them that I was rationing out until I became desperate enough to put in a distress call to Kathryn!
Then last week was my birthday and Kathryn told me to expect a package from her to arrive by then. When I got home on my birthday there was a big box on my porch and when I opened it – there was a smaller Walker’s box inside and when I opened it – I saw THIS!!:
A CASE OF WALKER’S ROAST CHICKEN CRISPS!!! And underneath all the bags were loads of Cadbury candy bars and hot chocolate!!
I got right on FB and uploaded this pic screaming about how awesome Kathryn is – and she was thrilled it had arrived in time and that I was so pleased. Later that night I emailed her a thank you and asked her about a t-shirt she’d mentioned because I couldn’t find one in either box.
The next day she responded that she was happy I was happy, but she was a little confused because she hadn’t sent me ANY Cadbury, and had sent me a t-shirt and a BranCard. Hmmm…we both pondered how in the world I could have gotten a box from her that had the personal gifts removed, and the candy inserted. What kind of customs officials do that?? And how do they know I like Cadbury so much?? Yeah Holmes and Watson we are not.
OK so maybe you are smarter than we were – and have already figured out “Um – maybe someone else sent you that box!” Well, yes – of course now that seems obvious! Especially since the box came from New Hampshire NOT England – but in my defense, I thought she had just ordered it on-line to save the cost and hassle of mailing it overseas.
So after fretting for half a morning at how this had all happened, it occurred to me to text Rachel who had also told me to expect a package. Rachel sent me the case of crisps and Cadbury – mystery solved! So you know what that means – the next day I got THIS!!:
This one came with the custom-made t-shirt and a pretty boy on a card 😉 So I now have TWO cases of Walker’s Roast Chicken Crisps – soooo – I think I’m set (for a few months at least ;-p)
Many many thanks and lots of love to my wonderful friends who know me so well that they were generous enough to fill my tummy with all this deliciousness!
