Becky and I are off to my home town tomorrow, arriving on Wednesday.  I’ve packed the bags; Tim Horton’s cappuccino, Ziploc freezer bags, and Hershey chocolate bars (although I can’t understand that preference myself).  I shall return with a variety of Cadbury’s chocolate, an anorak for Becky, BBC DVDs, and underwear from Marks and Spencers.  Yes, I know you can buy Cadbury’s chocolate here (Canada) but it is rubbish.  It is a pale shadow of the original. Until you’ve tasted a fresh Crunchie from the factory, tasted molten chocolate from the Cadbury pipes, or mixed your very own wierd chocolate bar, you haven’t lived (in my rather biased chocolate-dipped opinion). 

I’m interested to see if I can write a post from there; it would be my first international blog.  I have adapters for both the plug/outlet differences and the voltage differences.  Hopefully I can keep my iPod charged while I’m over there (and not blow the circuits).  I’ll let you know how it goes.

Yippee!!  Going home!!!
