Things we love
Marmite. You either love it or hate it!
By Victoria Sullivan - 17 May 2012
My Mother- in Law has just arrived from England and brought Nick and Florence their favourite British spread Marmite.
But we all fell about laughing when we inspected the jar closer.
It says MA'AMITE , Toasting The Queens Diamond Jubilee. Fantastsic!!
I just had to display it in an old glass cloche I got from a flea market for a laugh.
For those of you who don't know Marmite, its a spread you put on toast. Nick likes it with cheese and Florence( 11) like it with jam...Yuk.
You either love it or hate it and I hate but I get it.
It has quite a history developed in 1680!
Thanks to its high B vitamin content,Marmite did its bit for the UK in two World Wars.
By the time of the First World War it was included in soldiers ration packs. It also became a staple food in hospitals and schools.
During World War II, Marmite became a dietary supplement in prisoner-of-war camps, and in 1999, it was sent to British peacekeeping forces in Kosovo after we received morale boosting requests from the field.
You can check out more on their website below.
This is the original pot of Marmite.
They even have their own Face Book.
We rescued a gorgeous gray persian cat last year and the kids named her Marmite.

The Queens Diamond Jubilee Scarf.
By Victoria Sullivan - 15 May 2012
I am going all out to celebrate The Queens Diamond Jubilee on June 4th!
HRH has been on The Throne for 60 years!!
As I won't be in England to enjoy all the pomp and circumstance I will be hanging out the bunting that my Mum kindly sent us along with all thing red,white and blue.
I spotted on The Liberty Face book http://www.facebook.com/libertylondona beautiful silk scarf featuring a commemorative print of Queen Elizabeth II in the centre with the dates of her reign, framed by her coat of arms on a crimson and royal blue Union Jack background by English Eccentrics.
I ordered it for my Mum as she loves The Royal family and suggested she frame it instead of wearing it.
Fortunately for me she is going to keep it for a while then send it for me to frame!! I t will look great over the fireplace. Can't wait.
They are selling out fast!
