I've recently learned that there's no such thing as half and half in the UK.  Are they not aware that I consume the equivalent of a small developing country's GDP in half and half each morning?  How have these dairy loving people not discovered the magic of half and half? (Not to mention that Horizon half and half is the creme de la creme of half and halfs (pun intended) --and I'm a connoisseur so take my word for it!)
I buy at least two of these at a time!!
I am thinking that I will have to create my own...this seems so dramatic but milk is just not enough and cream is too much.  I feel like half and half is the Goldilocks of morning coffee.  So, I've found this recipe -- looking forward to seeing if it will actually work...

For 1 cup half and half use:
3/4 cup whole milk + 1/4 cup heavy cream
2/3 cup skim or low-fat milk + 1/3 cup heavy cream

UGH! I feel for you! Not being able to find foods that you are accustomed to has got to be one of the biggest bummers about moving abroad. I have been in France for over a year now, and still have not been able to get my hands on some cheddar. I mean it's cheddar! It's a staple.

You might be able to find a few American shops in London, or a website that delivers American food to English addresses.

Oh no!!! No cheddar? In a country full of cheese? That is just not right...
