Dear friends in the UK

I am sending you love and endless cups of virtual tea and platters of Peak Freans.

This is all.

Woke up to my clock radio talking about flooding after heavy rain last night in various parts of the country. There was thunder last night, rain and occasional thunder today. However, I couldn't tell which side the thunder came from so was unable to read this augury. Nor was it saying Shantih Shantih Shantih.

At least this doesn't affect people's ability to vote as much, since we recently (defintitely for 2015, maybe previously?) adopted the American thing of "if you're in the queue, you get to vote".

I believe it's been dry all day in Bristol, but at least one polling station had to move because of rain.

I was going to whimper that this post reminded me I haven't been able to get "Nice", which used to be one of my favorites, in what feels like forever. A bit of cursory googling, however, seems to indicate that the problem is not just that they stopped importing them to the US, but that they no longer make them at all. :(

I am sorry to break it to you, but I bought a packet in the supermarket only a couple of weeks ago. Own brand, they're a generic biscuit type now.

Thank you, I am touched by your concern.

Sadly we're going to need a shitload of Peak Freans to sort this one out... :-(

It's OK, the road to the EU surplus Peak Freans mountain begins with a single box...
