And then before I had time to formulate an encouraging response he said,
‘I can’t eat that, I’m too busy’
So now I have a lonely custard tart that doesn’t taste of anything in particular, sitting on a plate waiting patiently for someone to taste test and confirm the wee ones suspicions.
Seeing is, sometimes, believing.
