I received a care package yesterday! My Mom sent 9 boxes of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and 2 bags of Nestle Tollhouse Chocolate Chips!! That’s right Ladies, semi-sweet morsels!!
Care packages are just automatic ways to lift spirits and be reminded of favourite treats from home. Any of the yucky feelings left over from a rough day at work yesterday suddenly lifted. Note to self: bring small baggies of morsels to work every day.
It got me thinking – what things will I want in a care package from the UK when I’m back in America?
Here’s a quick list:
Cheese and onion pasties or veg pasties if from Thomas the Bakers (not suitable for overseas travel, sigh)
Cadbury’s Dairy Milk
Lemsip – Flu strength
Any number of vegetable curries (also not a good shipping contestant)
Louie Theroux documentaries
Episodes of Never Mind the Buzzcocks with Simon Amstel
Umm, this one is embarrassing but… I really like all the reruns of Murder, She Wrote that you can get everyday if you have Sky. I don’t think you can still get that show in America anymore.
What would you put in your care packages Ladies?
