I wasn't very good at home economics, at the end of the Upper 4th i remember my teacher leaning over and saying
"I do hope i won't be seeing you next year"
Nice. She needn't have worried, there was no way Mother Hen was going to let me do cooking or drawing for G.C.S.E anyway, not when there was another science or language available xx This is an ongoing joke in my family, as well as the comment i made aged 8 when we were living in the middle of the Yorkshire Dales.
"I want to go to London, If i stay here all there is to do is marry a farmer and bake cakes all day"
Oh the sweet sweet irony of it all.
At school I could cook, i just had no interest in cooking the things in the SHS cookbook. Due to Ma Hen's interest in food and travel we grew up eating anything and everything. Except things like shepherds pie, which was the preserve of going to friends' houses for tea.
In the past i have worked for some great chefs and food companies.
It is A-Level results day, i think this is a sort of it doesn't matter what you do at school post.
It is also a flower school post, we are holding a table centre course in September. If you want to learn how to make something like the above details are being emailed to those on the mailing list on Sunday evening.
That is if i can work out mail chimp.
