Tea and Sympathy

The nicest thing happened to me today.

A student from last term, a very bright woman of about my age, possibly a bit younger, with a shared interest in Folio Society books and dogs, had heard about my losing Cholmondeley.

So she turns up at my office today with a complete English Cream tea. Home made scones (beautiful ones, with cranberries and whole wheat flour), Devon cream, blackcurrant jam, organic tea. Even some biscuits for Robinson.

How cool is that???

Oh, what a lovely, lovely person. That is definitely a candle in her heavenly crown.

yes, I agree! Karma points, in spades (to mix metaphors).

Man, I am so jealous of that. I would kill for real clotted cream and blackcurrant jam.

You have been very thoughtful in your time, don't worry :)

But it was a very nice gesture!

She gets extra good pats and scritches for bringing something along for Robinson. She obviously is a woman of very good sense as well as being a very special friend.
