Creature comforts

Jackie: I'm talking to Helen, hi Helen...

Helen: Hello

Jackie: ..who comes from the UK but is now living in Portugal and I'm going to ask her the question. Helen, what do you miss from home?

Helen: Proper builder's tea.

Jackie: Tea?

Helen: Yes

Jackie: Can't you buy tea here in Portugal?

Helen: Yes. You can buy tea in Portugal but compared to English tea it seems to be very, very weak. So in Portugal when you ask for a black tea, a cho preto, its um... a very weak tea [which] they often serve with hot milk, which is very wrong for an English person.

Jackie: Right

Helen: So every time I go back to the UK I come back with a suitcase full of proper builders' tea.

Jackie: Builders' tea, strong, proper tea.

Helen: Strong, forceful tea, yes.

Jackie: Fantastic. Anything else?

Helen: Um... I miss Marks and Spencer's.

Jackie: Now that's a shop, a clothes shop.

Helen: Well, its clothes and food.

Jackie: And food, yes.

Helen: And food. But what I miss about Marks and Spencer's is you can go in and get absolutely everything from Marks and Spencer's and it’s a great place to buy good underwear and socks and things like that. I miss Marks and Spencer's.

Jackie: Good value for money.

Helen: Absolutely, yeah.

Jackie: I always think of it as a kind of a comfort shop somehow.

Helen: Yeah, you're right actually, yes. Their food is very good as well because you can buy lovely urn... ready-to-cook meals which is always good.

Jackie: Anything else?

Helen: I suppose one of the things I miss most, especially being here in Portugal, is the different culture of going to the pub.

Jackie: Right. Because they don't have pubs here, do they?

Helen: Not so much, no urn... going to the pub with your friends on a Sunday for a roast lunch is a really wonderful thing um... and its quite a different culture here. They've got lots of places to go with friends but the good old-fashioned English pub doesn't exist.

Jackie: And I think also a British pub... there's something very cosy and welcoming about it whereas maybe some of the bars here in Portugal, they're a little bit stark.

Helen: Yeah. I suppose its to do with... I always think when I think of a pub I always think of it being quite dark in there.

Jackie: Low ceiling.

Helen: Low ceiling, yeah, and comfy chairs and a roaring fire. But here, yes, its a, its a café so brighter lights, its very bright in there, usually a...

Jackie: No carpets.

Helen: No carpets, tiled floor, yes, and you know, café chairs so you don't sink down with the drinks so that's what I miss quite a lot and being around all the friends and just talking for hours.

Jackie: Fantastic. Well, but you do enjoy being here in Portugal.

Helen: I do love being here in Portugal, yes, definitely.

Jackie: But some creature comforts are missing.

Helen: Always [both laugh]       

Jackie: Thank you, Helen.
