It seemed an innocent question, casually delivered while eating our lunch of homemade soup, biscuits and cheese. Mrs H is so busy with this, that, my daughter and her 3 year old that it’s far from every day we sit down together. It’s good when we do. Usually.

“Is that your cheese?” she asked, pointing to some Caerphilly. I’d mentioned that the cheese I’d just made was very close to maturity. The Caerphilly was well past it’s best.

“No,” I replied, “it’s that one” pointing to another and expecting her to cut herself a piece. But she chose the Caerphilly!

    If she needs an A & E the nearest is Stevenage with a good reputation for intestinal disorders.

    Well it didn’t do you any harm Steve... or did you avoid it? I haven’t heard that Mike’s been whisked off to A&E though!... yet...

    Another story just got up. Go and read it.

    BTW, it seems to be that just me and you are active here.

    Thanks Christopher. I think you’ll find that Drew Martyn and another man called Christopher write a lot, among others.
