Your current poll about milk in little pots reminds me of a cup of tea I had once on a British Airways flight from Athens to London. The little pot of milk I got was labelled only in Greek, and it made the tea taste very peculiar indeed. It was only later I found out that tea is not a popular or well-understood thing in Greece (despite it being such a nice place otherwise). And that what they really like is coffee. And that what they really like *in* coffee is cream of goats' milk.

Tregroes Toffee Waffles Review
My colleague Helen (from Gorseinon) and I (from Pontardawe) were exiled in the wastes of Bloomsbury last week studying the intricacies of DB2 UDB at the IBM offices there. During one of the tea breaks we managed to sneak on to the internet. Your review of the Tregroes Waffle really cheered us up
with a taste of home. We could tell you then - no access to e-mail. But better late than never.
A bit of info. for fellow waffle lovers. If you're ever in the Carmarthen area on a Saturday the nice ageing hippy types from (I think) Tregaron Waffles have a stall on the outdoor market, and will make them for you while you wait. As a family we normally buy half a dozen between the four of us.
They don't last the walk around the market. Warm syrupy waffles, Yum!
By the way, a belated Happy St, David's Day. Hope you gave the Welsh Cakes and Bara Brith a bashing.
|Nicey replies: Hi Sue,
I had a lovely St David's day awash with Tregroes Toffee waffles I have to say. I had a nice chat with Laura from Cardiff about leeks and daffodils, and Welsh hats. We were a bit miffed at not being able to home at lunch time though...
Tregroes Toffee Waffles Review
1) Thank you for bringing the firm of Tregroes to my attention, my order is winging it's way as we speak.
2) My eldest daughter is in deep poo and cast from the maternal sight, she works for Harvey Nicks yet withheld the knowledge of their presence on the food hall shelves from me.
3) They're mine, allmineallmine (all £13.20's worth)
4) There is a lot to be said for lycra stretch materials
Love as always to the family
||It is with a heavy heart and a great deal of anger that I write to you to inform you of the sad demise of a fine, upstanding mug.|
My own Dennis The Menace (of Beano fame) mug which I have had for many a long year and has accompanied me through various offices, was today mortally wounded by the incompetence in the tea room and clumsiness of a fellow worker.
The aforementioned colleague seemingly dropped the mug onto a hard concrete floor with no consideration of the cups well-being. The handle of the mug snapped clean off, whilst miraculously the rest of the mug remained in one piece.
This mortal wound has left the mug unusable and although it saddened me to do so I had to hold a short ceremony and bury the beloved mug within the contents of the kitchen bin. It will soon be carried away by a hearse (in the shape of a dustbin lorry) and buried in the nearest rubbish tip.
As you can imagine I am heartbroken, as if I had lost a dear friend.
This terrible incident is made worst by the fact I now have to drink from a stained, crappy yellow Hewden Industrial air mug that makes coffee taste disgusting because itís the only spare mug knocking about.
I hope you can help me get over this traumatic event
|Nicey replies: Wayne,
Our sympathies are with you, at what what must be a very difficult time. However, loosing a mug is a bit like loosing a Pet. Although another mug will never take the place of the one you have just lost, you can of course console yourself by going out and buying another. It will take a week or two to get used to the new one but time is a great healer and soon you'll be able to look back and just remember all the happy times you had with your old mug, before your mate smashed it up on the floor and you had to bin it.
RE: THe Milk Pot poll: Are we talking the fearfully scorned UHT products, the dreaded Semi Skinned, or the blessed Full Fat honest to goodness cow juice?
Although Iíve voted for the two pots, I wish to make it clear (and I think I have) that only proper milk will do.
|Nicey replies: Realistically its what ever is on offer at the time, it could even be that stuff in the little brown pots that is really supposed to be used for Coffee.|
