I would offer to do a crafty swap with you but I'm totally overwhelmed right now, but I'd be happy to send you some British touristy stuff and candy if you want to send me your address? x

The bit of England where I'm from is mainly, I think, famous for white socks and stillettos... not sure how well that would work as a craft theme! Huh Hmmm....

I just sent over my questionnaire!

I'm thinking maybe I might learn more about my little corner of the UK by doing this swap - a quick google search and I just found out that there is a tradition in part of Essex where a ceremony takes place every four years to test newly married couples devotion and if they can show they are truly devoted to each other they get.... wait for it .... bacon. Huh Obviously.

Haha I thought, "ESSEX GIRL" then saw your other post. If it makes you feel any better, I'm from Scotland where we're famous for inventing the TV and the telephone, deep-frying mars bars and dying from cancer and heart attacks Smiley

I'm kind of impressed that you got Essex Girl from the white socks and stillettos... but as I am beginning to discover there is more to Essex than the 'Essex Girl'... there is also bizarre bacon awards. So as I am sure you can tell, I'm just about all set craft-idea wise!  Roll Eyes

A deep fried mars bar is something I just can't even imagine.... like how would the mars bar not just melt when it goes into hot fat?! Have you ever actually tasted one? Is it worth the calories and cholesterol?

YES. YES IT IS.  Cheesy

i tried one at uni in southampton and let me tell you, as a chocoholic and a massive pig, it was devine. alas, they don't seem to have made it to surrey  Cry

my favourite uk traditions: welly wangling and that festival where you roll a big cheese down a hill and chase it. not yet discovered where these take place. but i intend to move there when i do.

Deep fried mars bars are amazing... Yum!
As for cheese rolling, in Dorset there's a new tradition in the making called "Dorset knob throwing" it's brilliant.. You throw a Dorset knob (like a teeny hard bread roll) and whoever gets the furthest wins. There's also knob painting, a knob & spoon race, splat the knob..! I missed this year as I was at the horse racing but the last 2 years were so much fun :p

so many inuendos there too.. We thought it was called something else for a bit! Cheesy
