      One little luxury..

      What would be the one thing you had wished you had brought from the Uk when deciding to move abroad?

      My one item would have been some decent shoes.. the quality of shoes here in Perth is terrible!

      Oh heck Tim now there's a question!
      Well given the fact i live in nam and you just cant get bugger all here then my list would be extremely long but to pick one id start with a case full of body lotion, you can only get it with whitening in here. All the girls want to be as pale as possible, i dont!

      That's funny Doz - I would never have thought of that. Here in California they don't seem to do the added tanning stuff in lotions but at least they're not going to make me paler!

      I miss Johnson's bath and shower stuff - they sell it here in Cal but the fragrances are disgusting - they are so heavily perfumed and smell like sweets. Whenever I go back to the UK I stock up my suitcase and it's heaven for a couple of months!!

      Not really Tim, they can stick a few chillies in things but generally its quite bland and tasteless.
