When I used to come home from school my gran was supposed to babysit until my mum came home (my dad worked shifts at that time) about 2 hours later when we would then have dinner. As a bribe, along with actual cash :) she would make me treacle sandwiches. These were not freshly made as they had started to dry out and go crusty and a bit crunchy. I loved them. As you can see from below it was a perfectly healthy snack, full of, er sugar!

Reason for the bribery? She loved bingo and would rush into town to get a quick session in and then rush back before mum got home!

Fingers. Etiquette is that you break the roll and then use the knife to spread the butter/jam/cheese/unicorn tears/pate/coconut oil (sorry that should be for a different web site) on the bread. 😊
lol really?? not here. the bun/roll is traditional for breakfast and never got broken with the fingers lol furthermore we have even own knifes for this.

We are still in the EU at the moment (and hopefully will remain). I have adopted European stuff like having cheese and cold meats for breakfast, beer just about anytime, using garlic when cooking and so on. I ha not tried the driving on the wrong side of the road yet as that does sound a bit iffy.

In 1998, archaeologists found a well-preserved double track leading to a Roman quarry near​
Swindon
, in southern England. The grooves in the road on the left side (viewed facing down the track away from the quarry) were much deeper than those on the right side, suggesting LHT, at least at this location, since carts would exit the quarry heavily loaded, and enter it empty.[7] In the year 1300,​
Pope Boniface VIII
directed pilgrims to keep left.[6] So driving on the left has been a long long time.​

it's still right to drive on the right side!

To be honest when we either fly to the US or get the Eurotunnel across driving on the right is fine. Done it often enough to not really notice it now. The worst time was when we flew to Germany and hired a car and it was manual. After 35 years of changing gears with my left hand doing it with my right was really hard.

The only automatics we have had have been in the US/Canada. Nearly everywhere else has been a manual, all the European hires and even Kenya and Mauritius were manuals.
