Serious Stuff

At the start of the new school year, I was roped in to help at the village youth club. I am now officially in charge of the tuck shop. What a chore! For someone who loves sweets, this is an ideal post (I am even talking in an official capacity!)

One of the downfalls of being a faffer is that I just can't leave anything alone. After manning tuck last week, I decided that the whole thing lacked something. Something I have made up for this week.

I felt I lacked a certain gravitas - after all, I am in charge of tuck. Let's not beat about the bush here. After having a chat with Keanan who informed me that I would embarrass him beyond belief if I wore a full apron, I went with the half apron (with Keanan's consent).


Also popped into the youth club bag, ready to go, is a table cloth for the tuck. After all, I can't stand there in all my finery, with my wares displayed on a old chipped formica table can I?

I love the apron, but I have no idea what the 'tuck' is? What exactly is it? ;)

Wow you will certainly be the best dressed tuck shop manager around!!! Love the apron and tablecloth, sounds like a wonderful job to me.

Good for you missy, a little bit of plump pudding loveliness will go a long way! I bet sales will shoot up!

Hope you are all well. Must catch up soon. x

How delightful Samantha! As the proud owner of one of your aprons, I know how lovely they are. I am sure that the tuck shop looks much prettier now that you have taken over. Enjoy your weekend.
