Mr B home for the weekend :good: - no dont think things like that!!!!! - I have a list of jobs :good: :good:
Same here Bubbles, OH is working away during the week and I always have a list of jobs needing done at the weekend - this week he's getting off light, just a dechetterie run today and helping to pose 2 extremely heavy shower trays tomorrow. :lol:
At first I misread ‘pose’ for post and wondered how he was going to post such heavy things at all, but at the post office and on a Sunday................🤔 . Then I reread it.

In my defence, I’m not feeling great and should be asleep at this hour!

Oh, that has pleased me greatly. Atora on order! :D :D :D
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.
Keep us informed V.
We didn't check the mailbox yesterday but I did today. And guess what I found in there ......? :D :D :D

Only 2 x 240g of Atora and 2 x 400g Bisto original gravy powder!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So now it's turned lovely and warm (verging on summery) and not in the least winter stew weather at all, I could, if I wanted, make loads of suet dumplings. Of course, a couple of days ago I discovered 2 packets of Bisto in my store cupboard too that I'd forgotten I had.

I'm still extremely pleased to take delivery of this little hoard. Just, please don't ask what they cost ........

Now you are all set for next winter so why worry about the cost ?

I'm not worrying Sue. But perhaps shan't tell Biggles voluntarily. :lol: :? :? In current parlance, 'it is what it is' and may make us value dumplings even more than we did before! It didn't break the bank but I can see, for some, it might seem like profligate extravagance (it that tautological?).

Simple pleasure of sitting in the lovely warm sunshine.

No, not in my book .. plus you have bought items which will be used in preparing food for you and Biggles to eat next Winter or when you need comfort food.
It's not like you spent a fortune on a handbag 😶
