I tried a new method when making this blueberry sorbet. It uses egg white which I had not tried before. The sorbet has an amazing set and is so easy to make. And best of all, you do not need a churner.
Next month Dave and I are heading off to the UK for a holiday. Once again, this meant applying for a Visa. Each time we do so the methodology changes. This year our Visa applications were completed online which was the same procedure as last year. I saved our previous application so a lot of what I did was copy and paste. This was a great time saver, other than the fact the order of some of the questions had changed. There should have been no need to print off the 24 pages but the day I completed the documentation the checklist download feature was not working and so I had to do so. The next day when I went in to book our appointments, the download was working, which meant printing off those 18 pages. With the 6 needed for the appointment I had printed off a small forrest.
The best change to the site has been the fact that you can now upload all of your documentation beforehand. They require a lot of information, such as your flight and accommodation details, proof of employment and income as well as proof of residence. I also had to get a letter from a family member stating they were staying in South Africa while Dave and I travelled. I uploaded a total of 24 documents, forgetting to include our marriage certificate. Thankfully that was not crucial. Due to privacy issues the UK Government cannot create a file with all of this documentation saved to it. Which means in 2021 I shall be uploading all of the data again! After all of the computer work I could not get Dave and I an appointment together, unless I was prepared to pay £89, which I decided was not worth it.
