The Furlongs have strawberries in their garden. But we can’t get the staff to pick them – it’s school holidays and the staff are doing something else.
We had an excellent day recently when the staff arrived in the form of two small grandchildren. All the strawberries were picked. Not that we GOT much. One member of staff ate them all as she picked, and the other, ate all she picked in our lounge and vomited them up on our furnishings.
Today, I had to pick our strawberries myself. We got more – but it wasn’t half as fun.
