Am travelling back for a short visit next month and just wondered if there's anyone here on Forum that wants something brought back with me. Please no requests for 3-piece suites or bedroom furniture ;) nor am I scouring high street shops as I detest shopping. Keep it simple like Euthymol toothpaste etc. or perhaps you want to order something on Ebay/Amazon or the likes and someone out there can drop it off to me. Again, small items please :p

Have seen some threads on here where people are asking if anyone from UK is coming over here soon and would they bring something over for them.

I so hope I don't regret this once in a lifetime offer (from me that is) :D

A melton Mowbrey pork pie and a chicken balti madras hot with a table nan. Thanks :D
Haha I'll do my very best just for you Laowei. :p

Wouldn't mind packing a whole suitcase with Greggs cheese and onion pasties and sausage rolls - can't beat them. Scrumptious :D

I was in Seahouses which is a small fishing port in North Northumberland over the easter week end and I stayed right next door to what could be the best fish and chip shop in the country! I could have eaten it every night.

I'm hungry now!!!!:-(

Am not taking much over with me 5herry, pretty much an empty suitcase which is basically why I can offer this. Although I will admit I shall do my best to stock up for the return :D

Kenco coffee is definitely on the list unless Laowei can kindly point me in the right direction :)

Off topic, i was so fed up off the crap choice of instant coffee here i bought a Nespresso machine, makes great coffee(ran out of the pods a few weeks ago and had to revert back to instant which tasted like s4it) they model i bought was around 1800dhs here, same one in Uk is around £199 could do worse if you like decent coffee. You can get a basic one for around £140.

Great, now I'm going to be inundated with requests to bring back coffee machines ;)

Only jesting, in fact I've thought about investing in one, so perhaps I might treat myself and find a cheapy over there to bring back
