      Hot or not Sheena. I like mine fairly hot otherwise to me it's not a curry.
      What meat did you use this time.

      I've definitely lost my sweet-tooth since moving although I always buy a box of Thornton's chocs when I'm in the UK!! At least I can get Marmite and PG Tips here - we've got an 'International' section in our local supermarket and in the British section they sell - curry!!

      When I first moved out here I used to be forever bringing things over with me on visits home, HP Sauce, Salad Cream, Branston. I often send SOS messages home "Mum I have run out of salad cream" and luckily it will only take a few days for stuff to arrive. I can remember a friend coming to visit and bringing 2 huge 1kg jars of Branston which lasted me ages. Its only recently I noticed that once open you are supposed to eat up in 6 weeks and I definitely had one of those jars open for at least 6 months. As time has gone by I do need things less and less but I think I amused a security woman at Stansted last week when she was searching my bag and was bringing out my Paxo, Atora and Bisto gravy.

      Okay this might be a bit girly and it's not food but it's driving me nuts. Sure deodorant spray. I can buy the rollerball over here but not the spray can. And as you girls will know the rollerballs still leave those annoying white marks on your clothes no matter what they say. Whenever I go back I buy tons of those spray cans!! They haven't taken them out of my suitcase yet and I'd hate to have to explain it to a security guy!!:twitcy:

      Saw some today as well as Thorntons Chocolates in The Scottish Shop , fairly close to where I live. Bought the chocs, as well as Garibaldi biscuits, and other goodies.

      Hi Sheena,
      It's easier for me to go to the Supermarket and the little shop down town. I can get everything I want there.
