    If you grease it, it should be okay, but why not pop out to the local shop and just buy some, the cost of the ingredients in a fruit cake is not worth messing about with. (Presuming it is a late baked xmas cake.)

    I read up about foil and the dangers of stuff leaching from it using it for baking. So Ive just greased the tin welland Ill hope for the best.

    Its only a tea loaf.

    But a special one.

    Rather than delete in google photos I add it to a used album. I then remove the same photo from the voucher album. You could archive, just remove from album, or delete it instead.

    Hi there
    Yes I stay in Glasgow. I think we just never got round to it.

    I lost my mojo for glitching so its been a long time since my last glitch....But I have been reading up now and again but anyhow yesterday I was in sada and thought why not give it a go.

    So, 6 Aussie shampoo and 3 B&H sets later here I am... of course I thought i'd messed it up a million times during the 3 hours but all worked out well except for a apg of 20.27!

    Will make a point of catching up in the new year. I remember you got me a couple of packs of beans that were really cheap

    Barley sugar you really made my day yesterday. I told two people that I would be meeting up with a glitchy friend after Christmas. A kind gesture that was really appreciated

    Dh just looks at me. You would think after 4 years he may understand. Oh well never mind

    I done my first Amex shop and 5 credit is in my account. Dh’s Supplementary card came today.

    Now to start a list of pressies for about 6 special staff. Fortunately they do notknow I am a glitchy shopper but it will be the thought that counts
