Hurrah for the bread salvagers!

entry picture

( as mentioned to Tom Harding in a comment on his recent wonderful poem and amazing sketch! )


This is my Gran

in Granddads fully bread loaded van

having rescued all the skip intended bread that they can

its all in date so its not too late

to freely deliver it to those individuals and community groups

struggling with high prices of late ( BOO! )

brown loaves, white loaves, barmcakes and so much more

for eating today or bung in anybodys bread starved freezer store!

such as the old folk, football clubs, and so many church groups

to butter and jam them, toast them or dipping in soups

for all of our towns every age lads and lassies

I hope Granny survives being squashed

thats her not a binbag wearing the glasses!

I get annoyed when my other half throws out a slice of bread that has a speck of mould on it- "I could have toasted that!"

Then I get annoyed at myself for making a big fryup and not being able to finish it - because I'd been on the ale the night before!

Do I say hi or howdy Helene? 😉 thank you so much indeed for such a lovely ( albeit sad ) comment.

I am so sorry for your loss of what I can rightfully assume was a lovely thoughtful lady and wonderful Mom. God bless her and may she rest in well deserved peace.

Good on her for also being a salvager and especially so when you think of all the people ( and animals ) who are starving around the world.

Would it be ok with you to let me know her christian name please because I do not like being ignorant. You can leave it on my profile page or inbox-thanks!

Look forward to keeping in touch whenever-take care.

Rose 💋
