Our container is on it's way over and there are a number of delightful treats on board:-

Orange Squash
Tetley tea bags
Oxo cubes
Bisto granules
Chicken tonight (dunno why SWMBO put this in, we didn't even eat it in Blighty
Proper English Mustard (what a condiment to make your food taste better rather than sweeter?? )
Proper (sealed) ruby murray spices as bought down the Melton Road in Leicester

We bpacked a ton of Cadbury's chocolate in our cases. It helped Schnorbitz jnr settle at school when she took two bars into class!!
