    FWIW, I would try and fight that "no need for physio" recommendation. Full range of motion is, as you note, not the same as full usage. If you wait a few months you may find that you've compensated in bad ways for the strength loss and then find it more effort to recover. To compare, I had a clean break, no pinning. Started physio 6 weeks after the break, was onto full weight press ups by 11 weeks post accident, and back climbing after 15. My experience was that focussed rehab exercises really helped that along (had previously dislocated the AC joint in the same shoulder so was expecting this).

    I write lots of code. That people even use.

    As @hamham says, what rehab have you done so far? If little, then all of the supporting muscles will be weak, which won't help the shoulder (I couldn't push myself away from a wall while standing after doing mine in). You can often self refer for NHS physio through your GP.

    My idea with this was that additionally a blue passport should be treated as if we had left: requires visa, no right to work in EU, etc...

    You can reboil to get a better set. Careful though, in my experience it's easy to overdo it.

    Missing Bean on Turl St (also their roasters on Magdalen Rd).

    Peloton coffee on Cowley Rd also good.

    If you don't have a smoker/bbq then peaty whisky is a good shout. Just make the marmalade as normal and then when it's ready (and hot), whack in a reasonable dram or two. The alcohol evaporates immediately: careful for bubbling over.

    It was a bit of a stab in the dark. Ice cubes in a shallow pan in a smoker for an hour seems to be the preferred option if you don't have fancy kit.

    You could probably also just smoke the oranges whole, but the the water approach might be easier to control smokiness?

    Seville oranges. Perhaps smoke the water?
