I had lovely surprise "sweet treat" last week, sent by my UK friends Peter and Judy. They'd struggled to find anywhere selling my favourite Curly-wurlies so, when they did find a stash, they bought and sent 8 of them to me! "Bitter sweet" though, as I read in newspaper the next day that Cadbury have stopped making them (since their takeover by Kraft). I'm not happy about that!! And the same paper also warned that the Chinese Government is planning to block internet telephony ("Skype", to you and me) and force everyone to use a "China Telecomms" alternative. Guess who owns "China Telecomms"? So far, Skype still works but I'm bracing myself! It's a bit of a lifeline back to UK friends and family.
