McVities and Marks & Spencer tea

When Marks&Spencer owned my local supermarket, we discovered St. Michael tea in the blue box and never thought we would not be able to get it. But after a decade or more, Marks sold Kings and not only is the tea gone, but so are the McVities digestives. They are both right up there on the comfort food list. When Marlene came to visit from London last spring, I asked for tea and biscuits. I am still rationing the tea but the digestives are gone. HOWEVER, on the Internet, I found a source for the biscuits and one day when I was feeling flush, ordered 6 packages of them. I just opened the 3rd. Uh oh. Marty gets his hands on them and they are gone in five minutes. Ok, a day.
On another subject - I printed tonight with the screens I made last night. Some interesting results, although it is premature because I have not washed them. I loved the screen but didn't love all that white I was printing on.So I mixed up a color it told me it needed and painted into it. Click to get a closer look. Tomorrow I will steam and wash it and see what else it needs. Or not. This one I will have to think about - but I can do that in the morning. I don't have tobe anywhere early tomorrow - only I have to drive to the eye doctor's in the afternoon. So I will have time to sleep late if I want to, and time to work. Right now, time for bed.

Hi Rayna, I'm always happy to send you tea and biscuits if your need gets overwhelming! I'm a hob nob fan myself but they're not good for the waistline as it's impossible to stop at one.

Howdy, stranger! Heven't stopped by in a while. Looks as though you've been busy like the rest of us!

I haven't heard the word Digestive for almost a quarter of a century when my youngest daughter brought several boxes home when she returned from her first year of college in the UK, I do remember them being very tasty and enjoyed then each morning til the boxes were gone with my then favorite drink "tea". She also introducted the family to scones which I instantly loved, but as a southern gal, scones are not too far removed from a biscuit. I would envy your your remaining boxes if I had developed a wheat allergy. Yucky poo.

Thanks so much for posting the picture of the striking purple and brown piece. It's a real wake-up call for me. I need to do something a little less regimented. I've been doing a good bit if drawing with dye lately, which is great, but can also devolve into a rut. Thanks!
