I am currently feeling somewhat ill (big aww!) and whenever I am ill, I tend to consume fairly large quantities of Heinz Mulligatawny soup. It is the only time I ever eat tinned soup – and I will only ever have that spicy beef curry soup.
So you can imagine my horror when stumbling out over the past few days to get provisions that none of my local supermarkets seem to stock it anymore – or somehow all ran out of it at the same time.
Being ill is bad enough – without my staple foods being unavailable as well.
I am not sure quite why it is that I seem to have this hunger for beef curry soup when ill, although when I was in hospital a few years ago and talked about this very issue with some nurses they pointed out that it is quite a common thing for people to prefer much spicier foods – something to do with the tastebuds going on strike during fevers etc.
Maybe I can get some soup on the NHS if that is the case?
In the meantime – would my local supermarkets kindly get some soup back in stock please.

The ianVisits website has been running now for just over a decade, initially as a news blog, later adding the events listings guide to the offbeat and geeky events in London.
Advertising revenue contributes to funding the website, but doesn't cover the costs. That is why I have set up a facility with DonorBox where you can contribute to the costs of the website and time invested in writing and research for the news articles.
It’s very similar to the way The Guardian and many smaller websites are now seeking to generate an income in the face of rising costs and declining advertising.
Whether its a one-off donation or a regular giver, every additional support goes a long way to covering the running costs of the ianVisits website, and keeping you regularly topped up doses of Londony news and facts.
