We gave our chiminea to family!! BIG MISTAKE!
2 boxes of bacon fries from coop
cold, crisp autumn days
Morrisons lamb seasoning packets
chargrilled chicken seasoning
cod, chips and curry sauce from the chippy!
Them were the days!
Bet you can't quite believe you're nearly ready to go! Happy days ahead, all being well, so good luck and bon voyage!
My luxury item would be a Henry vacuum cleaner. Such a smiley little chap and good at his job, too!

If you like shoes, consider stocking up on some classic styles as they are rather woeful quality and/or price here.
I bought a pair of Fitflops for £30 in the UK. Same pair, online Aus shop, cheapest price I could find was in a 'sale' for $110. That currently converts into about £60. Full price would be about equal to £71
Other pairs I picked up for £25 before leaving the UK, some £40 or so. But average price over here is around $130-160 a pair. Not even sales can match price wise.
I also order son his school shoes from Clarks UK site. Much better range and price. I had his feet measured in store at David Jones and so knew what size to order. I did go in ready to buy a pair of shoes in store there but they had bog all choice and what there was seemed not so good quality. Skechers and stuff are really pricey here. I saw the same pair on sale here recently for $80 or so and I picked up son's pair in the UK for less than £20, so better than half price. My mum was over recently so I had them shipped to her and she bought them over for me (along with some other stuff).
I've been really disappointed in shoes here in general, glad I have good quality pairs to last and that I stocked up on summer shoes and a few other pairs before we left. I plan to go shopping when I am back in the UK on holiday next year and top up
ETA - Blundstones, my favourite boot ever are cheaper here than the UK though
