Last night we received a text from the PE Lady saying that she had been pottering in the kitchen as you do on a Sunday afternoon and had made some strawberry jam, using some of the real strawberries that she had picked that morning and wondered perchance if we would like to avail ourselves of one of her spare jars.
Well, as you know we don’t need to be asked twice where comestibles are concerned and so Darrell was immediately tasked to text back a resounding “Mais oui, mais oui, et nom, nom, nom!”
And when Nigel arrived first at work this morning, there it was waiting on the desk for us, complete with a note from the aforementioned and much loved PE Lady.
I am afraid the excitement got the better of the little fella and going against all the stringent rules of hygiene that we have always tried to instil in him, he just couldn’t resist trying just a tiny weeny morsel, without a serving utensil ……. what is he like? His verdict? Well, I feel a review of a strawberry preserve type nature coming on ……. ideally accompanied with, perhaps, a few scones and thick double cream!!!?????
