Recommended Posts

Hi sorry my question is not very exiting but we are visiting our family who have just moved to Tas.

What does anyone think would be the best things to bring.There are 4 of us coming.

Our family over there are daughter son-in-law & 3 boys 16,7,& 5 years old.

 

Really enjoy reading " chewing the fat " & you have some very funny comments from people.

It makes me laugh & is a good fun start to the day.:smile:

"The problem with neo conservative capitalism and it's insatiable greed for more wealth and disparity amongst the populace,is that it ended up being the catalyst for the great depression and modern recession"

Hi again Margojacko,

 

Crispy70 also has kiddies she will have some good ideas and she is in Tasmania also Margojacko.

 

My grandparents in Holland send me over food parcels via one of our sons, (all has to be declared of course) I think she believes there is a famine over here bless her.

 

I dont know how much you are wanting to spend.. but Marks & Spencers Cashmere for men and women are wonderful, so useful here in Tasmania.

M & S Cashmere scarfs are also wonderful http://www.marksandspencer.com/gp/search?node=42966030&field-keywords=cashmere+scarfs&x=0&y=0&viewID=results&intid=gnav_search'>http://www.marksandspencer.com/gp/search?node=42966030&field-keywords=cashmere+scarfs&x=0&y=0&viewID=results&intid=gnav_search

I always buy my husband these sweaters, they actually I have noticed gone up a bit:mad: they were 50 quid, but they last forever and he loves them.

Childrens shoes are always welcome here apparently, they are better quality back in Europe.

 

 

HellyHansen have a great sale on for jackets/sportswear right now and wonderful for Tasmania climate

http://www.getthelabel.com/fcp/categorylist/brand/Helly%20Hansen?addFilter=PRODUCT_GENDER&filterValue=men

 

Tins of Quality Street (Declare)

 

For your daughter in law perhaps some Fenjal products.. I enclose a link but they are obtainable in Boots or most Chemists http://www.chemistdirect.co.uk/fenjal_v_3841.html

 

Badedas products (obtainable here but expensive) through Boots and Chemists

 

(If you do purchase liquid items, open the plastic bottles first to let out the air to avoid leakage)

 

I am sure other members will come up with some excellent ideas.

 

I am pleased you are enjoying our forum and managing to get some good laughs.

Oh Chris, I had no idea... what a wonderful Mother you have and I am sure you would be just happy to see them arrive safe and sound on Australian soil.

Had I known it was your Mum, I would have recommended...

wholesale boxes of super glue..

Hi Steve,

are you telling me that pop ( iron brew ) is expensive over there?

At first I thought you meant brew kits meaning beer home made brew kits. Now there's a thought.

Would it get through customs though?

many thanks maggs

HI again Susie,

yes I am pretty wonderful & of course my daughter takes after me.

As I was reading your "post " with the cartoon I was laughing my head off.My husband was sat at the side of me mending our electric

kettle with some Araldite.

I already have shares in superglue (just joking) as I am always breaking glasses & anything else I get my mitts on.I think it must been in our Genes .

love maggs
