There is so much stuff that you just can’t share! Stuff that creates panic and frantic overtime at work that the public never ever hears about, and then you go home and get asked “you ok?!” and you can only really say “...it’ll be fine”.

I mean like there are a lot of Commonwealth countries. What I don’t get is why Americans are so obsessed.

Yeah, as an Australian/UK duel citizen, I am absolutely sick of Americans telling me Australia should throw off the ‘yoke’ of the Commonwealth. The Royal family have no, none, zero political influence - they operate purely as a head of state upon which the foundation of our laws rest, and are figureheads without any Read more

Yeah I definitely experimented more with lipstick for online work, trying things I wouldn’t do if we were face to face :P

Weirdly enough I think I bought more make up than usual, and skin care seems to have increased, at least some brands are reporting? I definitely bought some nicer eyeliner :P

I could see there being a fair and valid argument in waiting for the EC vote, as the basis for the final legal confirmation of the results of the election (in fact, the gap between finalised results and EC vote is staggeringly long!), tbf, but she clearly wasn’t and was pretty obviously obeying Trump vs having any Read more

Yeah I have never even considered returning a food item that I bought - even when I’ve picked up the wrong thing, that’s my error and either I can work out what to do with it, or give it away to someone who can make better use of it!

I’ve never had the opportunity to try ambrosia (or “jello salad”), since I don’t really want to make it just for myself and no one wants to embark on the journey with me! Maybe next year I’ll convince some friends to do a USAian themed dinner and I’ll make some!

Huh, the candied fruit isn’t really used here?! It’s dried fruit and peel soaked in alcohol haha. Some people might add glace cherries, but they’re the only one that would be similar. I am definitely referring to the old fashioned, British fruit cakes :)

You can’t get it store bought here, so yeah I’m always made my own! I prefer a more shortbread tart shell, which is very buttery, and definitely use evaporated milk, brown sugar, and enough spices to make myself happy (ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, clove and mace)

Grease a backing tray with oil or butter, and sprinkle it with sugar (preferably demerara but castor sugar is fine too!). Read more

I’m Welsh! And my grandma used to make this all the time. I’m not a fan because fruit cake is still fruit cake - father in law likes the soaking in whisky part, I think, so tea might be a bit boring for him!
