Hi, I'm from London.

I've been living in Jeddah with my dh and four kidlets for six years.

I wish we were in London now to see the snow!

You can get veal bacon here can't you? And turkey slices taste very similar to ham (as far as I remember.)

Veal bacon is not much like the real thing, the turky slices are similar I suppose.
