@beautiful_FrEaKDoes Milwaukee shop offer DHL shipping too?  Last item I bought from them was a Buzz sweatshirt almost two years ago.

@SuperJackle Yeah, naoki is THE man :) What did you order? ;)

It’s the pair of edo-ai sugar canes that I ordered back in April, same as yours. I’m glad that they won’t be in limbo anymore.

Our First Minister announced today that the shielding order (the advice given by the Chief Medical Officer to secure the health of vulnerable groups) has been extended from 16 June - I was so looking forward to that date - until 31 July :sad:

That's a long haul mate... 5 months or near as damn it?  Good luck...

Yeah - near enough 5 months ... I thought we were doing pretty good but that’s a kick in the nuts. The Duchess said that means there’s plenty of time to do a complete overhaul of the bedroom  ... :dry:

Mr Porter sale started today’s so no issues on buying Beams, Blue Blue Japan, Gitman, RRL, etc.  No shipping issues with them, just have to jump on what you want early.

Anyone got a lead on a ProxFH05 in size 34 or larger? I messaged pronto and their site says I’m out of luck. Maybe you magicians know better

I recall from my time at Flat Head that this cut is basically the same as the SE05BSP or 3002. So if neither of those work for you, I don't think the Pronto model will either. I'd think the 3012 would get you better results - just my two cents.

Dang I’ll take your word. 3012 is ideal but I can’t find a pair anywhere in the world in 34. I have a pair of 3009 in 36 coming from BF but I might taper a bit if they fit

^If i'm reading that right, they charge a 10% fee. I know all proxys charge fees but that seems a bit high.

I'm always on the quest for the perfect peanut butter, it's always been Sun-Pat for me, not so much for the flavour but more nostalgia.. it's one of those comfort foods which reminds me of childhood, a slice of Americana from a pre (UK) convenience food age. Meridian is too earthy and adult for what i seek, same with Whole Earth, Pic's is too hard to spread...ect 

Anyhow.. I went to Morrisons at the weekend because i couldn't get a click and collect food order, i haven't been to a Morrisons for years and spotted 'Proper Nutty' it's made in Yorkshire and this one was jarred by Kevin

IMG_9544

Damn! it's everything ive ever wanted in a peanut butter.. i tried to buy more online but it's £7.99 +ship for 2 small jars, this one only cost me £2 from Morrisons reduced from £3, i'm going back this weekend buy a tray.

Be careful about finding the peanut butter mixed with chocolate...you’ll end up eating the whole thing in one sitting...and have regrets about eating it all later!  :o

I’ll look out for that Neal. We usually get Pip & Nut Crunchy (good) or Meridian Crunchy (OK) if P&N not available as they’re the 2 best varieties usually in stock at Sainsbury’s. The other week Mrs F went into Waitrose and bought Manilife Roast Crunchy Peanut Butter. Best I’ve had by far but very expensive.

well done Kevin! :D

I do love peanut butter but Italians don't understand it unfortunately. I can either get utter Unilever shite (Calvè) or equally unsatisfying vegan/too healthy stuff.

A friend of mine swears by the Marmite Peanut Butter...what the hell! i love Marmite (especially with beef dripping on a white breadcake, a northern delicacy) and Peanut butter but don't mix them together ffs!

Ive seen Manlife at Holland & Barrett Martin, i seem to think it was in the £3 to £4 price bracket, so not mad expensive, ive bought almond and cashew butter from H&B, it's pretty darn good...but it's no Proper Nutty :D

I think it’s £4 for a small jar - when there’s 4 people in the house who eat it, it doesn’t go far!

I’m afraid I can’t contribute to the peanut butter conversation as I’m not a fan (I know, boo hiss me) but I’m glad of the food chat as Mrs Unders made these beasts earlier today. Yorkshire puddings in balti dishes. Not convinced it’s fusion cuisine in the true sense, but I’m impressed! They were about the size of an adult face.

^^I don't envy the person who's job it is to scrub that enamel tray..

If you're ever up in Malham, North Yorks, check out Sunday lunch at The Buck Inn, they serve it with the greatest yorkshire pud ive ever seen, even better than my mums... better still for desert they serve the same massive pud warm from the oven and filled with icecream of your choice, its ridiculously good!!

Patience is key with daschunds.  They are stubborn but lovable.

Thanks for the recommendation. The dessert sounds amazing. I’ll be sure to remember for the next time I’m up that way. 

As for the tray, it’s going to be a right bugger. My tactic is to avoid the final serving at all costs.
