October 2012 Reveal

This month I was paired with Nic from who is a nutritionist so I knew that her selection would be well balanced and thoughtful with regard to everything I had told her about myself, my husband and our son who like to share my foodie pen pal selection!  Nic was kind enough to send it in time for us to open and enjoy before our latest holiday and she had written to us in coloured pen to appeal more to 3 year old Harry.

I thoroughly enjoyed the pack of dorset cereal (complete with bowl), it was ideal for our campervan and very yummy.  It is actually a brand I often buy for my breakfasts so I must say, good choice Nic!

The single serving of soup was a lovely warm treat for a chilly lunch outside the van, they were a reminder of home in France.

Harry loves his fruit and the fruit snack pack was a great standby supply.  Nic had also included some fruit leather rolls which Harry and Tony rapidly demolished, I didn't even get a taste!

As I'm a tea addict Nic sent me some white tea and some Earl Grey which I have been having as a nice change from the gallons of English Breakfast I normally get through daily.

I also kept the bar of dark chocolate to myself and have been nibbling a little each day as a little treat.  Tony and Harry would have eaten the whole bar at once but I like to nibble and make things last!!

I apologise for the lateness of my post but after a nightmare journey home including a breakdown and a French mechanic who insisted the cam belt (which our camper van doesn't have) had gone, 2 hire cars later, one hotel and a very kind ferry company later, we are finally home.  Thank goodness we paid for international recovery!!

Thanks Nic for a lovely parcel and for your patience.  xxx
