Fruit cake or sponge ? Doctor or vet ?
Angus buys three large Christmas cakes and has them shipped back from London. They arrive safely . ' The font ' looks at the sell by date on the packaging. Best Before 12th December. '' That's an unusual sell by date for a Christmas cake ". Seems that instead of Christmas cakes I've bought three 'Celebration' cakes. Victoria sponge with a jam filling. We're going to be eating a lot of sponge cake over the next week and a half.
An article in a London newspaper wondering if it might not be better to use the services of a vet rather than a doctor in order to save money in this time of ' austerity '. The article has begun to generate a wave of , mostly humourous, letters in reply.The last letter is perhaps the most amusing.
