Thanks. I don't expect to be here for more than 2 years tops, and I also don't expect to use it more than once a week, so if it survives that I'll be pleased. Can't decide what to christen it with: lasagne, I think, but I don't know if you can buy the sheets here. Or I might roast a couple of poussin...

I found chocolate oranges!

So I'm making chocolate orange fudge for teacher presents this year. The kitchen smells good.

Coles have been selling them for a while. The boys have been going shopping for me if it's going to be a heavy shop.

That's not a good combination
