Can you have another custard tart for me please!

So glad that you're there safe and sound. I must have missed the stiff upper lip because I'm knocked out for a week with jetlag.
Have fun.

I just ignore jetlag on the theory that it will get bored and go away.

Ah, Vesta Beef Curry. My mum used to add green peas to make it "better". Does Vesta Curry still contain sultanas?

Putting peas and sultanas in a curry is against the Geneva Convention.

Back in the day I would always have curry from our local Chinese take out as it didn't have sultanas. My order was always chicken curry and chips.

I didn't like the Indian restaurant curries

Would you like a snake with your paprika? (it's not a poisonous snake and it's very pretty, but if you have snakeaphobia best not to look)

Raisins definitely add something to some curries. And when they do, sliced banana improves it even more. Even mumsnet agrees.
