I love Jelly Babies!!

I'm currently missing stuff from the UK right now! I'd love to get my hands on a nice Milkybar right now, or some Toffee Crisp, or Walker's Roast Chicken crisps and a chicken caesar wrap from Tesco! :P

Haha!! You know what, I was all about the chicken fajita wrap before, but my sister-in-law kept getting the chicken caesar one and swore by it, so I tried it. Never looked back :P I've been craving it since May, LOL. Once I'm recovered from my jet lag, I'm heading to Tesco!!

Yes!!! I imagine you're counting down the days I hope you can too!

Less than 5 weeks now (technically 1 month as I leave on the 19 Dec)! I'm not a fan of fajitas - so I'll just stick to the chicken caesar wrap ! :P

I can't believe I'm going to say this -- I do miss Tesco :P

Hope you are saving some for me ! Don't eat all the wraps before I get back !
