Fruit Shortcake Review
Nicey replies: Mike,

Your tea drinking and sitting down facilities are an inspiration. I love the round table made out of decking. Also the attention to detail in the decor evokes a wonderful lorry park ambience like the two huge concrete slabs and the use of different sized skips, cable reels and a distant ladder. I wouldn't be at all surprised if Linda Barker didn't pick up on this and start passing it off as her ideas.

HobNob Review
Nicey replies: Hi Steve,

All manufacturers reserve the right to change their recipes, however, they don't do such things lightly as it can drive away loyal customers. Hobnobs cut out their hydrogenated fat content a good while back now, using just vegetable oil which is something that McVities can be rightly proud of. This made them a bit crumblier and crispier, and subtly altered the flavour although most people will not have noticed. I haven't had one recently, although of course I now fancy one.

Nicey replies: Thanks Sue for that in depth review of the tea making at Swansea Waterstones, it sounds all very nice, but I think the timers may be a bit intimidating. Waterstones have been doing great work selling our book and are going to be running a special offer on it when it comes out as a paperback in September.

Hope you have some nice Cornish Cream Teas on holiday in Perranporth.

Spoons
Nicey replies: Good speech Paul. I can't be doing with a filthy spoon, and your quite right that cleaning teaspoons isn't too tricky. As with dirty mugs, dishwashers are often to blame for this horrible state of affairs. Many deluded employers seem to think that a dishwasher will make their companies more productive as people will spend less time washing up and more time working. Of course the precise opposite is true. Much time is wasted by people scratching around for clean mugs and spoons as they are now willfully incapable of washing their own. Very few people ever load or even switch on the dishwasher, which although it should go on at the very end or the very start of the day tends to quickly get out of sync with daily office tea drinking rhythms.

A green nylon scrubber some hot water and a spot of washing liquid and 30 seconds later everything is spick and span. Personal responsibility versus some energy burning, chemical gobbling machine that incarcerates all the tea making kit for 45 minutes.

Plus what is the story with those people that half fill a mug with water and put all the teaspoons in there? It's a bit like those tall jars of disinfectant that hairdressers chuck combs in, except it's stagnating tap water laced with tea and coffee, milk and sugar. Having studied Microbiology and been given lectures at one point by a very senior public health Microbiologist on bacterial food poisoning, to say nothing of epidemiology, when ever I see one of these I have to empty it out wash up everything concerned in really hot soapy water then find the person concerned and strongly suggest that they desist.
