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???
