Long time listener, first time caller ...

Well, the title's a complete lie.

Nearly 6 years in CH and just was surfing to find out where there might be an Australian store on-line. Spot the Aussie: I've run out of Vegemite. I've been miserable and grumpy for days.

Lots of work travel, but none lately to Geneva (over the boarder to the stores there), or London (last visited in May), where i normally stock up.

OK, my real name's Brendan, Australian/Melbourne, mid-thirties and if you're in Fribourg, drop in the Irish bar (Paddy's), After work I'm normally drowning my sorrows there. I do get up to Paddys in Basel too. If you're English you will be reminded about the cricket scores too.

just a point about the cricket: you couldn't have won so easily had the English lot not turned up

Ha !
But seriously England has to perform better for Christ's sake !
Australia is not even that strong as it used to be, but sadly no other team is any better than them ozzies

Not as often as I'd like. My S/O is not Swiss, much worse. Italian. (Not quite sure what cosmic law I broke to get that one )

When it was just the lads, it was 10am finishes and off to Migros still wasted. Now it's only 6am finishes. And not so many trips to Luzern/Basel.
