took my mom to a chippy tonight as she wanted to try typical english food.

Her what is brown sauce?
Me aside from it being a sauce that's brown, I have no idea. It's never been successfully explained more than that.

Her what are mushy peas?
Me peas that have been mushed up.
Her why would they do that?
Me why do they have brown sauce they can't explain?
hidden for non-members3mo
I hate brown sauce
hidden for non-members3mo
But I also hate ketchup
hidden for non-members3mo
If I ever said that in northern England I'd be banished from the lands
hidden for non-members3mo
here i sit in the north. :)
hidden for non-members3mo
Brown sauce is a sweet sickly disgusting slop that people put on perfectly good food in order to ruin it
hidden for non-members3mo
Gotta have gravy on chips and a battered mars bar in the north
hidden for non-members3mo
Not at the same time!

She must also try a Yorkshire pudding, ideally on a huge Sunday roast with all the trimmings
hidden for non-members3mo
Yeah, we won't be here for a Sunday roast but we will get her a pudding if we can.

Airbnb in city centre?
hidden for non-members3mo
I just moved out of Manchester for three weeks and then move to glossop, but my office is there so I know the area really well (been here since 2011)
hidden for non-members3mo
Manchester City centre is all very walkable - Northern Quarter, Deansgate, Castlefield etc

i just grabbed the ibis for 2 nights. i don't do airbnb for less than a week. too much hassle.

If you want any suggestions for bars / restaurants / cafes feel free to tell me what you like and I'll provide a few ideas - trip advisor is pants
hidden for non-members3mo
thanks, i appreciate it. frankly, there is a 99.9% chance i never leave my hotel as i'm very very over being around other humans right now and this isn't even for almost a week. lol
hidden for non-members3mo
the thought of having no human contact aside from that which i have with my uber eats driver sounds like bliss to me.

I'm planning a month in Scotland in February. Does anyone have advice on how to allocate my time in different areas? E.g. spending more time in Glasgow versus Edinburgh, or vice versa
hidden for non-members24d
Oof cold time to go
hidden for non-members24d
Yup. Lucky I like snow ๐Ÿ™‚
hidden for non-members24d
Maybe check out the highlands
hidden for non-members24d
Glasgow Iโ€™m told is more fun to live in with more culture etc
hidden for non-members24d
Edinburgh is more beautiful and touristy
hidden for non-members24d
I only know Edinburgh really
hidden for non-members24d
Hmm thanks! Do you still recommend the highlands if I can't drive?
hidden for non-members24d
Ummm probably less so. Iโ€™m not sure as Iโ€™ve only driven and not sure about transport.
hidden for non-members24d
Snowy highlands shot from 2013
hidden for non-members24d
Transport in the highlands is pretty difficult without a car, and I'd imagine even harder in winter. You can get to some nice smaller towns by train, but to really explore you'd need to drive (or make friends with someone who does)
hidden for non-members24d
That's gorgeous!
hidden for non-members24d
If you stay in Edinburgh I'd recommend Leith, there are some good coffeeshops along the main street and easy bus transport links
hidden for non-members24d
I donโ€™t think itโ€™s worth doing the Highlands without a car, personally.
hidden for non-members24d
But they are sooooo gorgeous so maybe find someone to explore with who can drive!

Anyone have any experience getting a license in the UK?

Iโ€™m Canadian, and have a British passport. Was thinking it would be faster (than 3 years in Ontario) to spend 3-4 months in Belfast and learn to drive there.

Google says itโ€™s 3 steps (provisional licence, theory test, & driving test), just not sure how long it takes between them
hidden for non-members11d
if you've driven before, there are some intensive courses where you can get your driving licence in a week
hidden for non-members11d
grab your provisional licence first, just fill a form online and get it sent to a UK address
hidden for non-members11d
that allows you to drive with L (learner) stickers with someone holding a full licence in the passenger seat
hidden for non-members11d
the default will be to learn in a manual (geared / stick shift) car, the majority here still use them for whatever reason
hidden for non-members11d
either book some lessons with a tutor, they can take you all the way up to passing your driving test
hidden for non-members11d
or maybe you have your own idea how you'll practice
hidden for non-members11d
the test is in two parts, one is a theory test like you mentioned - this is pretty easy, grab some software to practice the test since I wouldn't really say it's intuitive
hidden for non-members11d
the theory test is a set of multiple choice questions and a hazard perception test where you'll have a video play and you click as soon as you detect a hazard (think child about to run into the road, car pulling out on you, etc)
hidden for non-members11d
and the driving test is driving a route around a test centre, they'll check you can follow signage (no GPS), observe speed limits, use a roundabout correctly, and 2 of a handful of manoeuvres (parallel park, bay park, three-point turn, reversing around a corner, hill start)
hidden for non-members11d
I find it helped me big time to explain what I was doing while taking the test - takes out any guesswork, since an observed 'hesitation' can be a major fault.. err on the side of caution always, e.g. driving slower than the speed limit is a minor fault, faster is an instant major fault
hidden for non-members11d
you pass your driving test if you have no major faults and less than 16 (I think?) minor faults
hidden for non-members11d
Just arrived in Belfast. Hi!
hidden for non-members11d
ygqtqizytr Basically everything rhdmyz said. Apparently Blackpool is the best place to do the 1 week intensive course as the roads are straight up & down. Itโ€™s even easier if you opt to only drive automatic.
hidden for non-members11d
The actual majors & minors are really annoying so just research those before your test. As bointc said they are a bit fickle. However, best advice I ever had was to treat your examiner like youโ€™re chauffeuring them and engage in minimal conversation.
hidden for non-members10d
my random alternative idea after completing was do the test as early as possible, fail it, then put a bit more effort into the re-test once you know what to expect. The test is relatively inexpensive compared to the tutoring, and if you do all that but then get caught out by the format/nerves youโ€™ll have to retest anyway. Personally I had it figured out by the test, but then reversed on a kerb for an instant fail, but sailed through the re-test. That being said I think the intensive options noted above sounds good
