It seems that I was not the only person to find Haworth such an interesting place. Thank you for all the positive comments.
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you may recall a post where I talked about discontinued chocolate bars, and then about Cadbury’s Husky – a cheese filled wafer. It was a departure from their usual chocolatey offerings but no- one that I ever mentioned it to remembered it, and a comprehensive Internet search, I could find no reference to it. I emailed Cadbury’s but got no reply. The other day I tried again, this time using their online query form and a lady called Kirsten got in touch. Here’s what she said:
‘I checked with the brand team and I can confirm that we did indeed make the Husky bar. I have attached a photo of the packaging for your reference’.
Hooray! I wasn’t dreaming. Oh, it tasted just wonderful. If only they’d relaunch it! Just look at the price – 3p!
It was back to work on Tuesday which is something I never want to do, but I’m always ok once I get there. There’s no-one else to do my work so it always takes a while to catch up. It seemed that everyone I needed to speak to in order to tie up an issue was out for one reason or another, so it was a bit frustrating but I was able to relax afterwards as it was manicure day. I chose an old favourite – OPI Miami Beet, a sort of beetroot juice colour.
I asked Husband to pick a few runner beans yesterday, but he came in and said that he couldn’t get to them. Apparently this was blocking his way. As much as I dislike indoor spiders, I find webs fascinating and agree that it would have been a real shame to spoil it. It was strung across the entrance to our little vegetable plot. We had frozen peas instead!
There are currently a couple of excellent police dramas on TV. The Confession is a true story and actor Martin Freeman is very good in the lead role. The Capture features Holliday Grainger (who plays Cormorant Strike’s sidekick in one of my favourite series – Strike). The Autumn season usually offers several new programmes and what could be better on a cold evening than to draw the curtains, snuggle up in one’s dressing gown and settle down to a great drama. Talking of which, possibly my all time favourite drama series was Downton Abbey, and for me, it was a great loss when it was announced that the last one was the final series. Great news then that a film has been released. Yesterday, Husband picked me up from work and it was straight to the cinema for the matinee. Oh, the costumes (those wonderful dresses), the lavish sets and the marvellous put-down of Maggie Smith’s Violet Crawley, the Dowager Duchess. My two favourite characters, Lady Mary and Tom Branson were as wonderful as ever. I loved it, and even Husband who hasn’t shown a great deal of interest (only watching a few episodes more because he happened to be in the room than by design) enjoyed it. Perhaps the film’s success will encourage Julian Fellows to consider a further series.
Here’s a picture I took recently. No story to go with it but I love this 1930s caravan. I’m sure it would have few of the comforts of its modern day equivalent but doesn’t it look fabulous?
Just wanted to say that I’m sorry I don’t always reply promptly to your post responses. I will always acknowledge them, but it may be a couple of days. I’d like to spend more time blogging but I just don’t have enough of it. I also enjoy reading several blogs, but again don’t always manage to read and respond to as many posts as I’d like. I always seem to be playing catch up.
And that’s about it for now. I’ve already spend an hour chatting to friends at the gym. Time to do a few household tasks.
