Oxford English Dictionary- Volume 5
Desserts are pretty important to me.
So it as soon as bank accounts, phone contracts, rent, & employment
were settled after our move to England,
I decided it was time
to get on local terms with the sweet stuff here....
but it was all a bit of a doozey.
Things looked familiar...
....and they sounded familiar
....but they just weren't the same.
Learning to work my way through menus
that included curious items like
non sweet pies full of steak & ale
could be headache (& tummy ache) inducing!
These days when it's time to indulge in a sweet treat,
I've really got my legs under me.
....though they're a bit chubbier than they were before.
