the best medicine

When you're having a crappy week at work, there is no better remedy than lunch in the sunshine with a good friend and bouncing a beautiful baby girl on your knee. Combine with a fish finger sandwich, and now all is right in the world.

Speaking of food (when am I not talking about food, I ask you?), I was browsing the shelves at Let's Eat in Milton Keynes the other day. It's a food shop/sandwich bar that carries some American groceries, and I was curious to see what they had. I spotted a jar of Welch's grape jelly and with the gleeful "Ooooh!" of a 5-year-old with no taste buds, I grabbed it...and promptly put it back when I noticed the price: £4.99. That's right, almost $11 Canadian for something that my mother could get for me at Loblaws for around four bucks. Next time I go home, I'm filling an empty suitcase with Canadian junk food and bringing it back here to sell on eBay for a moderately inflated price. Kraft Dinner? For you, a special price: £1 a box.
