Default Does this mean I'm settled?!

Some of you may remember that just before I left the UK I bought some foil and had a bit if a cry...
You will be happy to know that I safely bought some NZ foil with no hint of moisture near my eyes

I had a very similar experience with socks just before we left. Have managed to buy them here without incident

I don't understand it, and I'm female (I'd say woman but that sounds too grown up for me)

However, I did get upset when my bisto granules ran out!

I still (over 7.5 years down the line) refer to it as cling film - you should see the looks I get from kiwis Though some of them have admitted that it's a good name since that's what it is and does

Please tell me I'll be able to get gravy granules in NZ - they don't have to be Bisto!

I guess that does mean you are settled - thank you for making me start my Sunday with a smile

I was so anxious about not having a decent (ahem) waxing salon and had a weepy conversation with my beautician before we left! Finding a decent beautician is up there with finding a decent hairdresser Found it better and cheaper here than in the UK Sorry guys this is a woman comment admittedly unless any of you are into that kind of thing!

A silly question but can you get the solid stock cubes like Knorr's? And fromage frais? I have been looking iin Countdown and New World but cannot find it will hardly be the end of the world of course if I can't use them but it would be nice
