I was gonna post this on Monday after my weekly shop but knew if I did I'd have to tell you all what happened and at the time I was very embarased.

Before I start I'l just add that it is that time of the month for me and that is my only excuse for my behavour. (hopefully some other hormonal, mentally unstable ladies out there will understand this )

There I am in Woolies, see out the corner of my eye the Mr Kipplings, grab phone from pocket to share the happy news with Ant and just as he answered I burst out crying, so I am standing in the cake aisle sobbing (no exageration I really don't know what came over me) about some frigging cakes, trying to explain to Ant that I hadn't just seen an old lady murdered or anything it was just the cakes making me behave like a mad woman.

Anyway back to the cakes, they didn't have Mr Kipplings Chocolate slices, which are my fave cakes ever in my local wollies but they did have

Mini Battenburgs
Apple pies
Summer fruit and custard pies (might have been winter fruit)
French fancies
and Cherry bakewells

Oh and the boxes have changed since I left the UK so you might not recognise them straigh away

So if you are hankering for a bit of home then get your butt down woolies

Found these in Perth about 3 weeks ago. I am now the best 'Mum in the World', daughter was gasping with excitement to have cherry bakewells and battenburgs back on the menu. I was the only food she was missing and when I saw them in Woolies I nearly cried too, sad but true

Needless to say I am the loon who cleared the shelves so they would re-order them

We found McVities Digestives and Hob Nobs in Kirribilli deli last weekend. Gav's very, very fond of digestives and has tried loads of biscuits that look like they're going to be digestives, but taste nothing like them! He was, erm, shall I say, excitable.

Funny to watch - especially as he's only been here for 2 months.

Talking Re: Mr Kipling in woolies

LMAO at these replies !! I took as many as I could off the shelf too just to make sure they re-order ( HONESTLY!! ) and then ran around the shop telling everyone just how exceedingly good these cakes are !! Shame they didn't have vienesse whirls !
Digestive biscuits ! I know !! Quite expensive compared to arnotts biscuits but the taste just doesn't compare - McVities all the way !
I know this is getting really sad but has anyone managed to find REAL "NICE" biscuits ??
Maybe we could start a "where to find UK food in Oz supermarkets at normal or slightly above retail price thread".
I would have to add in BISTO GRAVY can be found in Coles.
Our taste buds have started to adapt but it is nice when you find a little bit of home close by. The familiarity and comfort thing.
All I need now is to find Aunt Bessie hiding out in the freezers too !!!

Have you tried the British Shop in Sydney CBD? Not sure if still there.

They took Mr Kipling off the shelf for a while whilst I was there then when they came back - Mini Battenburgs - I was in Erina Fair Woolies, I was shaking telephoning every expat in town asking if they wanted me to get them a box . . . little things hey

Funny thing though, back in Blighty for 16 months - craved so much stuff like pickled onion chips and Galaxy but don't go near the stuff now. Too much of a good thing, no doubt back in Oz I will miss them again. Ya can't win!

Definately not him, hes one of those blokes that has the same waist size (now where have I heard that before) as when he was in the australian army at 17. The boys are on the verge of not being seen in public with him, he bought 6 pairs of size 28 waist jeans in about 1980 and has been wearing them ever since, I have made subtle comments on the height of the waist and the fact the rest of the family have long since gone hipster
