    Not long now

    The Hymer is being readied as I type. PinkLady is hopping around inside it cleaning it all up for the last few ours. I'm checking over bikes.

    Hymer finally passed its MOT after I had to fit new RHD headlamp units. All MOT stations seem to be getting much pickier these days, things that passed previously are now being picked up.

    Got bikes booked in for MOTs on Thursday morning then I'll decide which one to bring.

    Managed to source another bottle of Extra Fine Calvados.

    This morning I have ordered 4 dozen oatcake Annie's oatcakes and 2dozen fruit pikelets. I have paid for these out of my own money and whilst I'd love to be more generous, the thought of a bunch of tosses kicking off because someone ate the last fruit pikelet was too good to miss

    The weather is looking more promising, so I might actually travel on the bike...

    Jack fruit I reckon.
    A Pikelet is obviously a youngster and young Pike are known as Jacks, so it has to be Jack Fruit

    It's a sort of flat crumpet type of thing, with currenty bits in it... So i believe.

    Well yes, I know what Pikelets are, having Northern parents. I always call crumpets, pikelets.


    I've never come across fruit pikelets though.

    Strictly speaking, they are made with the same mixture as crumpets, but are made without a round ring, so can be any shape, and are thinner.

    But I've always known crumpets as Pikelets.
