The phone rang with a minute nd a half left to go LOL so in the time I had 30 out of 46 right. Would have been a couple more if I could spell zucchini and galoshes.

Couple I had never heard of .. crane fly, molasses for treacle , and the whole cotton candy/ candy floss thingy ... we call it fairy floss here.

I was inspired to add:

Having to use pork as alternative - Hampstead

A weighty toilet - Luton

Lumber in house - Woodstock

I won't go on, I couldn't sleep.
