You Super Nova!

It's not the long, hard, pink seaside variety as I think our friend is thinking (I just realised how this may sound )

..but the short, pastel coloured, melt in your mouth, crumbly, gently fruit flavoured confections.

BTW, I bought some Walkers shortbread the other day in DF. Mmm, rather nice with a cup of Rosie

lol MB! I am getting you though..... I still think they do the short "chunk" crumbly stuff in the seaside places I am not too far from so am still happy to have a look for you if he struggles.

I always believed it was England (some argue I crash landed here).

While we're musing about seaside treats - a jar of fruity sweets disguised as pebbles came ashore.

Oh the fun we had putting real ones in the mix...

Cheers kiddo

I am sooooooooooo jealous. Not exactly warm here this time of early hours of the morning. And this summer the weather has been complete and utter pants.

Er, we've kind of completely hijacked poor old Jim's thread here.
