It's a different language!

Just a short post today as we are busy gardening and laying laminate flooring (if Lovely Man ever gets back from across the street).  He's gone to borrow a spanner which usually takes at least half an hour as it usually comes with a free bottle of beer!  Anyway I've been meaning to share something that really did tickle my sense of humour.  I've really been doing my best to speak the language over here.  You know the sort of thing.  You say "boot" we say "Trunk", you say "bonnet" we say "hood" and so on. Well the other day I bought a pork joint already marinated and ready to cook. When I checked the instructions I couldn't help but laugh. They read:- Set the oven at 425 F, place the pork in a roast pan, cook for 15 minutes and then reduce the oven to 375 F.  Cook for a further 50 minutes or until cooked to the required doneness!
