Dunno about hot vimto (start with cold and warm it up? ), but they have Heinz tomato soup here in various shops...

I miss loads of stuff - traffic jams, general crapness, dreary weather - and am glad to!

Watties! I didn't think it was that bad, although I did only try the ketchup.

And about NZ only being only mediocre with there being no excellence is a little harsh. I found the meat and fresh veggies to be good quality compared to the UK. More expensive but better quality.

Wouldn't that be a novelty, sausages that contain the actual meat that they are meant to taste of.

I have abandoned all hope and now have venison ones but even they occasionally have a bit of ewey lambiness about them.

We miss that as well. We are surrounded by some beautiful rolling countryside, but we can only look. Really miss our weekend walks in Derbyshire, particularly around Chatsworth in Autumn.

Yep my mistake Tommyluck, Fruli is Belgian and I am indeed a lady! I'll be packing some extra in my suitcase for when I come out to NZ and grace you all with my presence
