(I don't want people to feel embarrassed eating it in front of me!) (They are really nice people I work with so they will be polite, but I would much rather they genuinely liked it!)
Psst! Just between you and me and don't tell anyone, Tesco et al do very good ready rolled pastry (made with butter even) - both shortcrust and puff pastry - in the chiller cabinet near the butter and cheese. No-one will ever know if you "be like Dad and keep Mum".

"be like Dad and keep Mum"

Never heard that one before. I love it and will try to remember it.

It was on a famous and much quoted British WWII poster warning people that "Careless talk costs lives". If you Google it you can see a selection of the posters including the one with the glamorous blonde with a sailor, an airman and a soldier oggling her and the caption "Keep mum, she's not so dumb"

I think in USA they had a "Loose Lips Sink Ships" campaign among others.

(I was a product of the post war baby boom and these sayings were still very common in my childhood.)
