    Me too! I only make shepherd's pie when we have leftover roast lamb, in fact I'll sometimes buy an extra big leg to ensure there are leftovers! It is SO yummy!

    I make cottage pie, it's vegan, but my mum calls it shepherd's pie and I've said that at times because that's all she refers to it as! Oh and everything is a cupboard to her, even if it's a DESK or a bookshelf, or a tallboy, it's just a cupboard to her and it does my head in!

    Lambjamb- I see you're truly passionate about lamb!

    As for formal grammar education - the only grammar instruction I received at school was from LOTE classes.

    I saw some 'cashwews' for sale at the local fruit shop.

    Huh??? I disagree there... I would say it's the other way around. Cottage Pie doesn't have vegetables and Shepherd's Pie does. That's the way I was taught... *now googling recipes to prove my point*

    ^ Okay, google says the difference is the meat only. It makes no difference whether either dish has vegetables included in the recipe, but Cottage Pie uses beef and Shepherd's Pie uses lamb.
    Interesting.

    In a Letters to the Editor this morning a contributor has used the word perswade instead of persuade And that is how it was printed

    The newspaper I found this in is notorious for spelling mistakes and grammatical errors, even naming local landmarks incorrectly
