328 – Booty

We never return from a visit to my sister Gillian without booty. Fruit for me to make marmalade or jelly, cookies, cakes, flowers, books, magazines, fabrics, gossip, ideas, and inspirations. Banana cake with the Lynsey-friendly lemon icing, and the – urgh – chocolate icing.

In adding the lemon peel slivers to the cake Gillian really touched a part of our shared hearts. As kids we took great delight in having our very own, just for me, food – a little cake, a dessert made in an individual dish, something just for us. Mum used to bring us home tiny, individual loaves of wholemeal bread – identical in every respect to the full loaves except baby loaves – and just for each of us. We made sandwiches out of our very own loaves, and probably some toast. Back then bread was white, and unsliced, and wholemeal bread, especially presented as a tiny individual loaf, was very special to us. The simple pleasures.

Manifesto
18. Every day express love. Some people need to hear it. Most people need to see it. Donít take it for granted.
20. Every day say thank you.
29. Every day eat, drink, rest, work, exercise, play, love, create for your own good. And the good of others.
