    Yeah really simple. It's fun as well because you have to knead all the ingredients together so get really sticky hands covered in gingerbread mix :p: Do you want the recipe? I don't tend to decorate them because I think they're nice as they are
    Here are my efforts (made with wholemeal flour so good for you as well, yay!) :
    Yes please! They look amazing! well done!!!

    What can you actually do? Those wee books?
    Books, old 11+, 12+, 13+ papers, generic odd shapes based questions, code questions, you get stacks of books of that sort of thing for passing time on boats etc...

    Even if you only gain from it say 50 marks out of the 900 I fail to see any reason not to pull out all the stops, if could put you ahead of someone else then whatever the cost do it.

    Ah yeah, went for a boat trip off the Isles of Scilly and saw them! They're really clumsy when they fly :rofl:

    Another bird worth seeing is the dipper - saw one once and watched it for about an hour :rolleyes:

    There's a birdwatcher's heaven quite near me called Farlington Marshes - dunno if you've heard of it but apparently people come from all over to see the birds.

    Wife?!? I shall live alone with my butler, and during one rash moment at my country club I shall vow to travel around the world in 80 days using nothing but a hot air balloon. :holmes:

    That would never happen in Newcastle. There's about 6 Greggs just in the city centre, and they are only the ones that I've discovered :p:

    If it's a facilities bragging competition I think I'll win to be honest... :ninja:

    Apart from when it comes to gyms. Imperial just destroys all the competition when it comes to that. :coma:
    Because it is free I might actually use it.
