If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…well, we would be doing so virtually as we are in lockdown. I have a cup of French Earl Grey tea from t Leaf T and a cheese scone that was delivered fresh this morning from Arobake, and you have a coffee and a piece of banana bread, because after all we are in lockdown.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea….we would talk about deliveries from local businesses. I would show you our delivery this morning, with croissants for Sunday breakfast, bread to toast for weekday breakfasts, rolls for lunches in the week ahead and that lovely Swiss bread, zopf. I would tell you that we also had a delivery from Cameron Harrison of sausages, lamb, chicken and ham. You say, gosh you are all set up for the week and I say yes we are, especially as we also had wine delivered from Noble Rot.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea… I would tell you that I entered the design your own burger competition run by Wellington on a Plate on Instagram. I say mine was by no means a winner when I saw some of the others, but it was fun to do. We agree it was a shame that the festival got interrupted by lockdown. I ask if you had ordered the new Pandemic Pack recipe book, and you said yes you had as well. We agree it is a good way to support local business (it is a downloadable pdf so anyone, anywhere, can get one).
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea… we would talk about our lockdown walks, enjoying the signs of spring, which we can also see in our own gardens.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would of course have to ponder how long we will be at Lockdown Level 3 which starts on Wednesday, after what will have been two weeks at Level 4.
If we were having coffee…or even a cup of tea…we would say how hopefully next time we meet it will be face to face, and I can also invite you for dinner.
