Year 2 Day 161: Chramin or Cushelle
The UK has a knack for taking products and re-naming them for seemingly no apparent reason. A few months back the paper towel (or kitchen roll, as they say here) brand 'Bounty' was re-named 'Plenty.' I just don't understand why.
But here is yet another...if you're looking in the supermarket for some bog roll, you will no longer be able to find 'Charmin' as it is now 'Cushelle.'
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
