Re: Cooking

I make it a lot so am quite practiced, but it normally takes me 4-5 mins while something else is preparing itself. Bottled Mayo really makes me wretch now :-)

brilliant! I would have different recipes for these dishes, but the way you’ve laid them out is super easy for anyone to follow.

Re: Holiday in Sri Lanka in May

Re: Michael McIntyre show...

We went to the Laughter factory on Friday and that was awesome. Lesser known comics but fresh and brutal humour. Don’t ever go if you’re easily offended!

Re: Holiday in Sri Lanka in May

We lived in SL during the late 90s and for all of the troubles, we never felt that unsafe as the violence was never aimed at us. I think the same is true today, just stay away from potential trouble...

Re: How is everyone holding up?
