  1. ERMA GERD!! Mom & Dada LOVE TimTams, they are eye-watering expensive here though so they only ever get to enjoy them when their friends who live in Oz come home for Christmas & bring them some. Everything else looks pretty similar in price to us.
    Have a grrrrrreat weekend Auntie Bev!

      • It depends on what you are buying,a bag of 6 apple is 99p in morrisons where I work but strawberries are about the same as they are out of season,the walkers crisps are the same except when they are on a multi buy then they are cheaper ,the balsamic vinegar can be a bit cheaper depending on the brand,some things are a lot cheaper some not so much or the same,I’ll join in a bit later,xx Rachel

    I li-li-like it li-li-like here we go
    rocking all over the world…. and I like balsamic vinegar too, it’s the taste of summer :o) but it’s a little pricey in Oz… probably because it’s a long way from italy :o) can you send me some strawberries as a mail attachment please… I would make the salad I saw at Bacon’s foodblog… my dad forgot to buy that red thingies :o(… butt at least he bought eggs…

  6. OMP! Those wedges my friend. They look so piggy delicious! I want! I want a whole bag in my pot belly! Licks lips. And chips – THUD – piggy down. You are really going for my heart this month. And do you know in the spring/summer when strawberries are abundant, mom puts one on my pillow on my bed every night for a bedtime snack? I ❀ them!! XOXO – Bacon

  7. Mommy has decided that she’s going on a hunt for those TimTams. And strawberries are also one of my faves. It’s just about strawberry season here, and we live near a town that calls itself the Strawberry Capitol of the World, so we get some pretty good prices for some pretty fresh berries. Yum! We even have a local beer brewer that makes a strawberry-flavored beer. Mommy says it tastes like spring. Silly Mommy. πŸ˜‰
    This month all of our items were all about me, which is the way it ought to be, don’t you think? πŸ˜‰ Thanks for hosting and here’s a link:


  8. Those Tim Tams sound like US Girl Scout Cookies Thin Mints. Mom’s favorites.
    It is really interesting to see the different things from different countries.


All your words are special so thankyou for leaving them
