    I'm moving from england to Scotland to be with my boyfriend. I've visited many times and each time I have the same problem. I really struggle to understand what EVERYONE is saying. Some people are easier to understand than others but often people might as well be talking foreign accent. His dad uses so much slang I've had so many awkward moments where I've just grinned and nodded, I feel so rude. How am I supposed to get a job if I can't even understand what people are saying to me :s :s arrrghhh. My boyfriend is fine coz he lived in England for a while and knows how to adapt his speech for english ears. Is there anything I can do to get accustomed except learning painfully through living there. Maybe some recordings of scottish accents I can listen to. They take the consonants of words and say" ken" to mean know and I'm a little better now but still, they sometimes might as well be talking chinese :s Will this get better or is this the equivalent of moving to say FRANCE :O :S? any english make the move and struggle The thing is, what you think a scottish accent is (Lorraine Kelly, David Tennant) is really a watered down version they adopt when they move to England. I'm moving to Falkirk btw cheers x

  • I put too much lemon juice in my marmalade- can I add something to soften the taste?

    I made prickly pear marmalade for my family members for christmas. Unfortunately, after cooking and canning it (it's not "sealed" canned- it will be refrigerated and eaten by the end of the month), I discovered that I put far too much lemon in, and the flavor isn't bad, but... overpowering. Certainly it overpowers the taste of the prickly pears. At this point, I can't afford to make a new batch. I made marmalade to save money on presents this year. Is there something I can mix into the finished marmalade without completely ruining the texture? It's okay if it doesn't end up tasting like prickly pears... just as long as it comes out delicious and edible, my family doesn't care what flavor it is. Could I just buy a jar of some other, pre-made jelly, and mix it in? I realize that might sound like cheating, but all's fair in love and food, right? @RAB- I already have 4 cups of sugar to 4 cups of pear juice- it's very sweet, it's just also really, REALLY lemony. isn't there a flavor that can counteract/balance the tartness of lemons other than just more sugar? And it won't poorly affect my marmalade if I scoop it out of the jars in the fridge and stick it back in a pot? @EagleEye- I wish it had a bit of tang to it. It's super sweet, but that tang going beyond acceptable. It's like those cute pictures of orangutans cuddling kitties... only the orangutan is bashing you over the head with the kitty.
