I think the point of no return was on Monday night when I awoke to find my fringe in my mouth! I gagged and then attempted unsuccessfully to sleep for the rest of the night in a cap.
So, first thing yesterday morning I made an appointment and upon entering the hairdressers was greeted by laughter and the comment “I will need paying double time to take that on”. After much merriment at my expense and a myriad of comments such as “does anyone have a hedge trimmer?” and “I think I’ve found something alive in here” my bonnet was reduced to something resembling normal. I duly sent before and after photos to daughter number one Nancy, and all I received back was a text saying “who are you and what have you done with mullet man?”. Upon returning home in the evening Stan (5) said “oh no! what have you done?” and Mrs P uttered the brutal words “well that will take some getting used to”. This morning as I left them all supping tea in our bed, I thought I would see if any form of humanity had returned and said “does it make me look a bit younger?” Edith laughed somewhat manically and Charlie simply said “not really, just completely different”. I rarely storm anywhere but I think we can safely say I stormed out this morning quite beautifully and slammed the door with great aplomb!
It has been a very traumatic 24 hours and when such trauma occurs one never knows what time is doing and suddenly here we are on Wednesday morning with only 24 hours left to get anything you would like delivered before the weekend.
The JULY BOX of smoked salmon, hot smoked duck, trout fillets, mackerel pate, smoked nuts and sliced ham has been incredibly well received and is all delivered to any door of your choosing for £35
The FAMILY FEASTING BOX has also proved really popular for all the lovely bigger reunions going on this weekend with a whole baked ham, 600g smoked salmon, whole side of smoked trout , 4 chicken breasts and a bottle of delicious Rose. This is delivered to where ever and whoever you may choose for £85 (a saving of £30) simply add bread and salad and it will feed two or three families royally for a couple of meals.
All our other hampers and products are available like our pates, scallops, pork belly, pastrami, and cheeses. All you need to do to order is either call Amber in the office on 01458 250875 or order on line at www.brownandforrest.co.uk Please also ask if there is anything else you need or would like putting in from avocados to bread making flour via fudge and ginger biscuits, if we have it in the shop you can have it and if we haven’t we can always try and get it for you.
I hope your week has been less traumatic than mine and that your families are rather less brutal with their honesty or as mine see it their “comedy gold”.
Have a great rest of week
