Default Calling all expat Aberdonians.........

If there are any other Aberdonians on this site, I would like to point out that, thanks to BA delivering my luggage unmolested, I am now the proud owner of a dozen 2 day old rowies....

I dont plan on auctioning them off eBay style, but if anyone wants a taste of home, lemme know before I scoff the lot...............
