You never know, this might be just the stuff to encourage me to get out more:

Now, where can I lay my hands on a sledge and some Burberry gabardine?

    I'm hardly qualified to judge such matters, Robin.

    If you like, I'll post one to you so that you can do a proper review.

    I'll want it back in good condition, though - this ain't a bloody charity! 😆

    Shame the Tesco copywriters can't spell 'heroic'. 😳

    They've also omitted the third "a" in "Antarctica" and used odd punctuation/capitalisation immediately thereafter - look below the sledge-runners.

    Piss-poor performance, IMHO.

    The tea's good though - it leaves a decent stain in the cup.

    1. I'm going to seek out that tea, because grammatical rubbishness notwithstanding, their advertising has worked on me.

    2. It's taken me 48 hours to get the post title.

    @Scott - I assume that your search will involve raiding the local Tesco emporium as opposed to mounting an expedition to the original stocks at Cape Evans :mrgreen:

    As for the post title, when you spend three years studying in Brummigen you learn a thing or two. Sadly, not enough of that learning was of academic value.
