  1. My late Dad’s one sister owned a fishing fleet and factory in Denmark, and would courier parcels of Norwegian Smoked Salmon and roll mops to us here. My brother, who was already living and working in Pretoria, used to have a little hissy fit when he heard how my cat and I were enjoying the smoked salmon!
