Two pints of lager and a packet of crisps is the name of a popular English ‘sitcom’ (situation comedy) set in the North of England.
Generally speaking, a pint of lager and a packet of crisps are by far the most popular English snacks. Personally speaking, the tastiest crisps are cheese and onion flavoured, although my brother prefers smokey bacon; disgusting!!
According to an online poll, the tastiest snack in Spain is a tortilla, but I think someone is pulling my leg as it seems to me that people prefer to eat fried fish.

The service is second-to-none and the waiters are hot! As a vegetarian, I have to say I’m bored, bored, bored of Spanish omelettes, honeyed aubergines and a few tomatoes and onions mixed together with enough olive oil to sink a ship. So I was over the moon to have lots of vegetarian options when I ate at El Tapy the other week.
Moreover, if you are on a shoestring budget, this is the perfect place as it’s as cheap as chips, especially if you order the ‘daily offer’. In addition, I had a blast chatting to the owner.

This is a favourite question of grammar checkers. Most of the time there is little or no difference between the words especially and specially.
Special is a common adjective. Specially is its adverb form. Special means “particular, distinguished in a distinct way, or designed for a particular purpose.” Specially means “particularly, in a distinguishing manner, or for a particular purpose.”
Especial is an uncommon adjective. Especially, its adverb form, is much more common. Especial means “exceptional, noteworthy, or particular.” Especially means “exceptionally, in a noteworthy manner, or particularly.”
Please note that in the sense of “particular” or “particularly,” the words mean pretty much the same thing. Often they can be used synonymously. However, if you want to stress the exceptional or noteworthy quality, then especial or especially is a better choice. If you want to stress the distinctive purpose of something, then special or specially is the word you are looking for.
Example:Dictionaries are specially designed to define words as well as improve vocabulary and pronunciation: a distinctive purpose.
Example:Chambers dictionaries are especially effective: noteworthy for their excellence.
To put off doing something means you delay doing it usually for these key factors: too boring, too stressful, too uncomfortable, too time-consuming, too embarrassing, too energetic, too expensive, too difficult.
Indeed, this week I have put off going to Ikea (too boring), paying some bills (too stressful), doing my accounts (too time-consuming), painting the kitchen skirting board (too messy), making an appointment with the hairdresser (too embarrassing) and buying a wedding gift (yes, it’s true, I do know some people who are the marrying kind).
However, I didn’t put off, checking the results of Leeds United Football Club (boo hoo, as usual, we lost!) booking my flights for an action-packed Easter getaway (fantastic, I have tickets ), catching up with friends (lots of beer and too many delicious snacks), or developing my strategy to kidnap George Clooney.
As I’m sure you will have guessed, to put something off means, you delay doing it usually because you can’t stand doing it.
To not put something off, means, hurrah, you have done it, usually because you are keen on doing it. So,
