My local supermarkets have 'Irish' sections where you can buy Ribena, Rowntrees Jelly & Yorkie bars. But at $7 for a tiny bottle of Ribena and $5 for the titchy pot of marmite, all I do is go and look. Then write my mum a shopping list and get her to bring me things.
I havent had a curlywurly for years. I might have to request one. And Alpen...
superloopy - I made a right tit of myself in the local BigW - pampers were have a huge promotion about their nappies - ranges released in BigW - I raved about how much better they were than huggies and how I loved them when I lived in the UK etc. The woman asked me if I wanted a job
dh misses bisto - every time I make gravy he tells me it is not as good as bisto - am tempted to get his mother to send me a tin just to hush him up.
Ghosty - I am addicted to the fooc thread but I really can't think what to write. There are so many well written posts that I feel semi-illiterate in comparison. I will over edit and come up with dull unfunny boring crap...
Aw come on Superloopy ... you know you want to ... I am getting into it and have thrown my inhibitions into the wind. I made myself bored with my own post today but hey, who cares ... We will want to know all about minor B List Slebs that your DH sees
me too Superloopy - I have nothing interesting to say on the FOOC thread. (or indeed anywhere) but I will try. I'm sure the world needs to know about how hacked off I am that my Melbourne trip is over, and how into gardening I am getting. Middle age here I come
SuperBunny I think you are in Chicago.....there is a small town to the north west called Long Grove, it has a store called British Accents - it is a tiny store but stocks Bisto, Jaffa Cakes, loads of English chocolate, crisps and sweets as well as seasonal stuff and a multitude of tins and things you never knew you missed until you saw them! Oh and pork pies, bacon and sausages! Long Grove is quite a drive from you but it is a quaint (by US standards) place and fun for a day out - not much for the children though. Also try the back of any Costplus World Market - again a treasure trove of European food stuff! I think here on the North Shore there are so many Brits that every supermarket has a well stocked "English" shelf!
