Crick = creek
Martian bastard = mars bar
Rake = lake
Crouds = clouds
Hurro = hello
Twain = train

There were tonnes more, but that was two years ago and I've basically forgotten them all now.

The word of the holiday was definitely "confluence". We saw or came near several of them.

I was presented with a dilema recently: which side to cheese up my country cheeses?

As you can see, there are two sides to a country cheese -

Country Cheeses

On one side (the front) is a little extra salt and a smoother texture. On the other side it's a little more bland.

Now naturally you would lay out your Country Cheeses right side up and top away. Except then when put them in your mouth with the topping on top, you get the boring bit on your tongue.

So logically, you should flip your Country Cheeses upside down, and coat the back of them.

Now what should you top a Country Cheese with? Well dear reader, nothing other than Kraft Cheddar Cheese Spread -

Kraft Cheddar Cheese Spread

I suppose you could put butter or margarine or some sort of dip, but my recommendation is the cheese spread.

And what better snack can you think of on a lovely winters day -

Country Cheeses and Cheese Spread

(My brother will look at this photo and see something very definitely wrong with this picture - you see he will consume an entire jar of cheese spread with his country cheese biscuits - each cracker at least a centimetre thick with spread!! :) )
