Afternoon tea was taken again yesterday. Scones with strawberry jam and cream were followed by Bakewell Tart. This new routine is part of a cunning plan to entice neighbours into our home. Aunty Clarice has already accepted her invitation.
I’m sure it won’t take long before our invitations are reciprocated and we are popping across the road to have tea with a friendly widow or two. That is when the real fun will start as they are sure to offer homemade produce.
The ‘Cleethorpes Bake Off’ is within our grasp and if Maureen thinks I’m going to be a ‘Lone Baker’ she has another think coming. I wonder how long it will take me to learn how to make her signature ‘Cut and Come Again Cake’. What a delicious way to attempt reminiscence therapy!
