Resource: my Fortnum + Mason Christmas Survival Parcel arrived (and yes, it’s navy related!)

As there is no trip to London for Christmas-shopping for me this year (insert *big sigh*, *whine* and yet another *sigh* here), Miss C. suggested to use Fortnum + Mason’s online shop. Those of you who are new guests of my LJ: Fortnum + Mason as well as Hatchard’s are the two shops I always visit when in London, come rain, come snow. I usually drag tons of tea and jam home from F + M and an indecent number of books from Hatchard’s.

Ordering from F + M is risky business – oh the temptations! And I’m not only talking about the goods – I always have to use greatest restriction NOT to chose “HRH” instead of “MRS” (it’s my inner twelve year old, please forgive me).

So the Christmas Survival Parcel arrived by DHL – the only true luxury I allowed myself this year.

“Yes. Very nice. How exciting. But how on earth is your Christmas pudding related to NAVAL GOODNESS?”

Well, as you’re asking…

Fortnum Mason Nelson marmalade

The goofy thing about it: I HATE MARMALADE. Give me raspberry or gooseberry jam any day, but a hearty ew! to marmalade.

So my friends get the content, I get the jar. Ship mates share. 😉

Maybe I should suggest a Collingwood gooseberry jam. Just a thought.
