"Dear Spices of India, Wonderfully the package arrived at 2pm!! Yippee! It was perfect timing as we are having a party and I wanted the Indian Sweets for the desert, so thanks again - I just wanted to check all was OK, and I look forward to using my spices. We are out on a limb here in Guernsey as far as spices are concerned. I shall be passing on your website to my relatives. Kind regards,"
