“a jamie oliver recipe for sainsburys magazine dec 2009 i fancy these little appples minus the walnuts cos i dont want to die at xmas of allergy. not made them yet, io really like Jamie oliver recipes, i just wish he wasnt so annoying on dvds, i ordered some of them and had to turn them off after about 5 mins, i developed cooking tourettes over his slang. the room was bright blue, i get like that when i see miaimi ink, i was a body piercer for 6 years in bolton, miami ink is unbelivabley fake. the tattoists i know are not like that at all, much more down to eath and say things like "buzz" for bus, "foer" means the number 4, It probably cos im a northern lass and where we come from we call southerners (birmingham and below) big fairies!... they cant handle the cold in yorkshire, or the beer tehe (i sound like my grandad!) sing with me in a yorkshire accent " orn' ilkley mooer bar tat" that means on the moor in ilkley in yorkshire without your hat it is a beer drinking song of old up ere'”
