Thursday….. ARGH!

The day of the school Cultural Awards evening… so it was going to be a MAD day setting up the auditorium, checking certificates, polishing trophies etc…. sigh. This was designed to be snacked on at the big table where we were organising the certificates…. Bottom layer…. nectarine, pears and mini M&M’s.  In theory, a good…

Wednesday…. food in a box….
