I read an article about a family recently who have decided to buy only British this year simply to establish their patriotism and support British producers.
|I do like to see our flag on things.|
|How funny is this? English breakfast tea blended and packed in Germany |
along with a Whittard tea cosy adorned with
Royal guards and Corgi's, made in China!
I also admire the patriotism shown by by Americans and Canadians, they fly their flag here, there and everywhere. My cousin in Canada seems to have no problem sourcing gifts for us with the Maple leaf emblem on and I think this is lovely. It is getting easier to find items here but I wonder if this will peter out as royal events aren't at the fore.
Trouble is I have big fat failed already! Typical, I get caught up in a moment and just run with it.
It would be quite an achievement for me to actually think things through before shouting it from the rooftops.
The very day I made the announcement I trotted of to buy a bechamal sauce, made in Poland.
As if that wasn't enough to establish the fact that I am such a flippety jibbet I accompanied my sister to Ikea just a couple of days after, I know! Could I make it any clearer that I am so very forgetful? Probably not.
All I have to do now is come to terms with my conscience and try a little harder...if I remember!
On the flip side I did get a couple of pretty things though ;)
|A lovely little sweetie bowl|
|A pretty box for my daughter's room :)|
