Brighton College has introduced a compulsory etiquette course for its pupils covering such topics as when to remove one's jacket at dinner, which fork to use when and how to waltz.
But how's your grasp of modern manners?
They have done an online test here , have a go, it's interesting, and let me know how you scored.
Here's the first question
1.Which is the most polite way to drink a cappuccino? Should you skim the froth off with a spoon, or avoid completely the use of the spoon?
a)Drink through the froth
b)Use the spoon
Thankfully my score entitles me to use a knife and fork and didn't restrict me to a finger buffet, so I do have some manners.
Dumdad (The Other Side Of Paris) has passed this award on to me
Isn't that kind? Thanks Dumdad.
I have been instructed to: “Give the award to up to 10 people whose blogs bring you happiness and inspiration and make you feel so happy about being part of the blogging community! Let them know by posting a comment on their blog so that they can pass it on.”
As every single blogger who reads my drivel and comments here 'MAKES MY DAY' I can't choose between you, so the first ten people who comment please take the award with my thanks for keep coming back.
As you know my New Year's Resolution was to lose weight and get fit. You may/may not have noticed the new button I've added to my sidebar, just below my profile - this is where I will be tracking my weight loss - if anyone is interested.
