What will pals think?

Belfast Telegraph - Weekend - - WEEKEND TV -

While do­ing an art and de­sign course, I have made some good friends. To keep in touch, we have been tak­ing it in turns to cook an evening meal for the group once ev­ery month. It’s my turn now and I am wor­ried sick. I am not a good cook. My house never looks tidy. I have man­aged to avoid my turn once, pre­tend­ing that my youngest was sick, but I can’t do that again. My friends have all gone to a lot of trou­ble to do th­ese meals and I don’t want to let them down. FIONA SAYS: JUST BE YOUR­SELF — THEY’RE NOT GO­ING TO JUDGE Cook what you nor­mally eat. You’re not let­ting any­one down, and you’ll prob­a­bly find that your friends may even wel­come it. Some of them would have found do­ing a for­mal meal quite chal­leng­ing and will be happy that fu­ture events could now be a bit more re­laxed. As for your messy house, so what? Your friends are com­ing to see you, not your house. Make sure there is soap and a clean towel, and the loo and hand­basin are clean, then en­joy your evening.
