Having cooked four quail last night the only cooking I have done today was for the bacon sandwich I made myself for breakfast. Looking back to Father’s Day last year I see that the bacon sandwich was a highlight then as well although last year it appears I was able to find some black pudding to go with the bacon.
This year it was just a full packet of bacon (there were no kids to share it with) cooked in a pan and then placed on a toasted baguette with a good dollop of HP Sauce. I ate it with a cup of tea reading the Sunday paper.
The kids were assembled later in the day and handed round handmade cards and presents – some of which went some way towards explaining the raised voices and slammed doors. The presents included (at last) a copy of Sabrina Ghayour’s Persiana which should help to keep me busy over the next few weeks.
