There is no point in making your own at home.

Also, I've got to admit a pie with just a lid is actually a decent filling to pastry ratio. A full pie is always a bit pastry heavy.

One for me, the bird in the cafe who just cut my sausage sandwich into four pieces, like I'm a 5 year old.

On the contrary, store bought pastry tastes of nothing. Home made puff pastry and rough puff pastry is, by contrast, sublime.

The more pastry the better.

I'll often eat my wife's crust as well.

People being underhand in work, trying to get new stuff when nothing is wrong with it. If you come out and ask for something in a polite manner be far more receptive than it "don't work" or "glitching" and then hint a new replacement of it, just so sly.

A decent massala.

An oxymoron surely.

No, it's a good curry when done properly, but that rarely seems to happen these days.

The vegetable curry you get with a biryani seems to be in the same bracket - so hit and miss.

You mean "congealed slop they tipped out of a dented tin", I assume.

Normally it's random overcooked vegetables in tepid, curry flavoured water.

Being a (mostly) daily dog walker, who is normally out for a couple of hours. My dress code is always taken from the same BBC weather forecast as above....(Crawley)...........or it was.

Honestly, I've really just given up with it....

I'm often to be heard chuntering away during the walk about the inaccuracy of the bloody forecast.

I have long since regarded all forecasters as gits....Image
