I'm also new!
I'm also new to this site, and feeling very 'remote' here in Hungary. I'm actually English (please forgive me!) but have been living here for a couple of years. I enjoy cooking new things, even if I can't spell them, and find that talking about, sharing and eating good food makes life so much more fun :-)
Just because your grandma can't get up stairs doesn't mean she's a Dalek!
