    K2,   YOU MUST LIKE CHOCOLATE AS MUCH AS ME,  WONDER IF IT HAS ANYTHING TO DO WITH THE RATIONING,WHEN YOU COULD,NT GET IT.

            SHOPPERS HAD A GOOD DEAL ON THEIR TINS OF QUALITY STREET LAST SUNDAY. ON FOR $10.99 INSTEAD OF $ 16.99.   THEY WENT LIKE MAGIC.  ALSO JACOB,S CRACKERS WERE $5.00.

Hi Moorsy,

you are back in great form, tugging at our heart strings.  Did you get your Harvey's Bristol Cream, that is the only drink I ever remember in the house at Christmas and I never liked it.

I am trying to picture you guiding the cars round Shaftesbury Sq.  :D ;D

Did you get all your orders filled, I am sure you will glad of the rest. ;)

A very Merry Christmas to you and your family, and a Prosperous New Year. :angel: :angel:

Moorsy,

Jacob's crackers are 2 for $5.00 in Dominion now called Metro. I went to Jones St and got a tin of Roses for $24.95 and all the British stores were selling them for $34.95.

I forgot to ask, do you remember the EE sweetie coupons. ;D

Moorsy,

sorry that was packets, I have never seen a tin. That store is fantastic, it was worth the drive although my husband wasn't so sure, I spent nearly a $100 that day. Of course he saw all the different bars of toffee so he had to get a couple of each but they didn't count. Now he wants to go Back for more of the Liguoice toffee because our one doesn't have that. You know everything they sell is at least 50c or better less than the other stores.

That is funny everyone of you bringing the Harvey's, I think every house in Belfast probably had a bottle of that at Christmas.

My husband say's he thinks I am older than I say because I tell him about the ration books and the sweet coupons. I remember well because my Aunt lived next door and if you went for a message for her, one time you would get thruppence and the next time you would get the coupon, then you could go and buy sweets. ;D

     Val, loved the highland toffee bars, and always picked up dairy flakes to make my own 99s.
   
     loblaws sell the tins of Jacobs,you get a whole mix of crackers.

     There was another british store called Mortimers in Waterdown,that also had a bakery and butchers, dont know if its still there or not.

     Across Lakeshore from Jones,about a block to the right was a butcher that sold all the belfast breads etc.

Moorsy,

we went down Bronte and then made a left at Lakeshore and Jones was the next street on the right, I think, I don't drive but what I remember. Now which way when we come out of Jones St ?

Do you remember the Name of the butchers or the street and we could find it with the GPS.

By the way Deke was asking about you, have you seen his thread on Exiles, "Around the World"

maybe you can post some pictures of the 'Peg.

 Cant remember the name of butchers, it would be a right turn out of Jones onto Lakeshore and on the left side just before the Harveys restaurant,before Nelson st.

 look for P.M.
