This Week at Sack Posset Hall
We are planting mandrakes in the garden, in order that we might marry the roots. We are eating too many Wagon Wheels. We are claiming them on our MP’s expenses. We are cursing our confounded sewing machine to the ends of the sodding Earth. We are trying to coax the monkey out of the cistern. We are sporting a darling playsuit over the top of our long-johns. We are reading Consuming Passions: A History of English Food and Appetite by Phillipa Pullar, and it is one of the best books we have ever read. Our new hero is Trimalchio.
