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 ........
Good skills! Nothings to expensive when you produce the next yummy batch of Cornish Oggies, especially them with onions ;)

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.

Wow. Well done you. I tried a couple of times to sew shortened hems on new jeans on my sewing machine, but it couldn't cope with triple thickness. What type of machine have you got? Even if I had one with the oomph to cope, I don't think I'd dare to tackle making jeans.

I have a pre-war Singer that would tackle it but to do a hem on jeans it would never occur to me to drag it out. I do them by hand.

Our 9 year old granddaughter’s Covid test was negative!

Plus, my husband will have his cataract op this morning.
