I've never been a fan of cranberry sauce really but that's not really surprising when you consider that until last December, I'd only ever tried shop bought versions of cranberry sauce!

Exam results and credit reports The second half was more subjective. I had flashbacks to exam trickery, with multiple choice questions that seemed to have three correct answers, when I'd only normally expect to choose one. The hideous prospect of getting loads wrong loomed embarrassingly large.
