I am still spectacularly overwhelmed by the kindnesses of strangers – and I wanted to share this with you all.
I am no longer at the Southend Echo office (postal address details to be added to my contact page shortly) – but popped in a few evenings ago to pick up any remaining bits and pieces from the office.
And there, wrapped in pink paper, was a beautiful trio of hand-carved spoons, including a small one for SB.
I can’t wait to use them – although there is a part of me that is reluctant to stain them with tomato sauce and red wine and all sorts!
Thankyou, B and A – especially after the torrents of abuse I’ve had these past two weeks – for your beautiful gift, which has been very happily received and is now pride of place in my kitchen.
Best wishes –
