Looks like nearly 3 times the UK price plus carriage but when the call is " Oggie, Oggie, Oggie" :)
Edit.
Just looked closer at Amazon FR site & it would appear that the sellers are UK companies.
If that's the case it'll be interesting to see if they'll now deliver here & if the fact it's a meat product will have any affect.

It's been years since I've had a pasty made with suet pastry. Yummy. The ones I get are ordinary flour & butter and the Mrs. is a West Country girl. I dare not mention it.

Supplies of decent tea bags are getting difficult these days. Our usual suppliers have taken them off their list and alternatives are pushing their prices up steeply. I don't get it. No meat or dairy ingredients in tea that I know of. :roll:
I have a problem with smartphones. I need one hand to hold the phone, another to peck/push/and swipe, and another to hold the magnifying glass.

There is a vegetable variation of Atora. https://tinyurl.com/m82rzezm. However, Anne has tried it and said, "Never again."

Got myself a lightweight battery lawnedger/strimmer that unlike our other beast you don’t have to be Geoff Capes to operate. Very happy with it, only 2 daffs beheaded so far......

I wonder which will cost you more. The Atora or the fibre upgrade. :lol:
