Oh Caz, cream tea in a country hotel lounge! Sometimes I really miss the UK. I miss proper bacon and sausages, a pint of bitter (real ale), proper thick double cream (sterilised and spoilt here), clotted cream, marmalade (but I bring that back from England, can't even buy Seville oranges to make it here), marmite, peanut butter, nice curry sauces, English bread, English cheese - especially Cheddar etc etc .... I make bread to have a nice big farmhousy loaf with a doughy middle. Here it's all burnt crust and holes. The French boast about their products, but the English are very modest. Some French people are surprised to here that cheese is even made in the UK! One thing that is better over here is driving - emptier roads!
Think I better stop, this is the 2nd over serious post I've written today.
