50 Things I miss about the UK

And so on the 23rd of April and approximately 17.00 PST I have lived in Canada for 97 days. Which in other words means that if I was on a tourist visa there would probably be someone from immigration looking to throw me out of the country right now.
Alas..

Heres just a few random things that I miss about the U.K.
Obviously I haven’t included any friends or family because 1- kind of goes without saying, 2- not about crying right now, 3- I probably will at some point

Don’t get me wrong, I definitely have a few comments about some things the UK could take on board too- again… maybe I’ll talk about that another day

  1. Tax already being added
  2. Tipping if you want to
  3. Adverts on TV that don’t last for 5 minutes
  4. (Surprisingly) the lack of rain
  5. Free doctors appointments
  6. the DATE FORMAT
  7. Decent sockets and a decent voltage… ( Canada do you seriously think I have all day to dry my hair)

  8. MnS Food Halls

  10. Buying a small milk which isn’t in a carton
  11. Normal Breakfast Tea ( what the hell even is Orange Pekoe?!?)
  12. Being able to buy decent wine at a reasonable price
  13. The definition of Lemonade
  14. Supermarkets you can buy alcohol in
  15. McCoy’s Cheese and Onion
  16. Chips meaning the hot things that go with a burger
