It looks like we ran out of capacity toward the end of the meringue, I guess we ate too much Hollandaise!
We sent a parcel through DHL to Zimbabwe the other day, always an interesting experience. Gavin looked on the internet first three weeks ago and it was 147 euros. Gosh! He was quoted 115 euros by the internet yesterday, 108 euros by the first contact on the telephone and then offered a discount by the second sales person on the phone to 75 euros! The driver arrived 3 hours later, and managed to find our house without phoning us. What a delight, compared with our first french experience with DHL some years ago when it took a month for a Christmas parcel from my Mum to arrive from the UK, which had to be encouraged out of the Bordeaux depot after several rather terse telephone calls from both sides of the water. Maybe they wanted to keep the Cadburys selection boxes destined for the children.
I am farming sheep and goats on the Dordogne/Gironde border with my husband and our 3 children. We have an on farm butchery and sell our meat direct to the public via the markets and delivery points in our local area
