When friends come to visit me from the UK I ask them to bring me the things I miss and last week I was lucky to get these souvenirs/presents.
Cheese!!! Yes!!! Five pieces of different cheeses from a British supermarket - in Japan this amount of cheese would be expensive. In the Uk it is half that cost.
And chocolates.....Minstrels and a chocolate orange.
And - newspapers/magazines. I love reading current affairs, and although I can keep up with news online - it is relaxing to sit with a newspaper and read longer feature stories.
Of course, now I have lived away from the UK for over 20 years, so there are many BRitish stories and famous people I don't know about. So some stories are not interesting, but I even enjoy the adverts and TV pages.
I'm a happy British person this week.
