Here's a preview of the text for the writing challenge, when you're ready click the start button above:

In my family, everyone has a different breakfast, which can make mornings a bit complicated! Mine is relatively simple: a small bowl of coffee with a few slices of toast and some strawberry jam. My father prefers a savoury breakfast which includes a mug of dark tea, scrambled eggs and a few rashers of bacon, whereas my mother drinks a big glass of freshly-squeezed orange juice, and eats some yogurt with a croissant or a pain au chocolat. But my grandmother, who grew up in the Norman countryside, has a very peculiar habit at breakfast. She likes to spread some Camembert on a piece of bread, which she then dips into her giant bowl of black coffee!
