1. Supermarkets have abundant and reasonably priced smoked fish.
2. Supermarkets stock a good range of single malt Scotch whisky.
3. They sell this super instant yeast so when you make bread you only knead and rise once. The French would probably hate it but it makes life easy.
4. Approximately half the time, the transport system works as advertised.
5. Wildlife. Foxes, badgers, squirrels are cute. Weird but interesting to see blackberry and gorse in their natural non-weed setting.
