Hi Bughut, many thanks for your cheery reply. Sorry you not trading anymore, just lack of business? I'm actually not in Perth, 13 miles north, in Dunkeld. I don't know Perth that well actually (what, but you live near there!?) there's so much in Dunkeld that, what with Tesco's delivery - when I really must, because I don't really like Tesco's, much prefer to try and source local produce - I can just about never go into town! So I'm not familiar with that Deli. What street? We have a lovely one in Dunkeld, you must visit it! As I am on my own with three kids I don't have much time to mooch in Perth, although funnily enough my eldest two (girls) are always going on about how much better the shopping is in Dundee!! I've become a bit of a hermit, get scared beyond local village limits!!! I do transcription work at home for a couple of companies, medical and other things, Govt research papers, job interviews, some legal stuff. Gives me some extra pennies. I get the sound file thru email and send them a document back. Self employed. Got a good tip here about my soggy pastry, what do you think? Spreading egg white on the base of the pastry case before cooking, bake for a wee while before adding, say quiche mixture. Must try. Will make another quiche today, methinks! Hmm, you're doing a cookery school in Spring. Could be interested in something like that for my daughter (14) at some point, but it'd have to be in hols. Be great if you had the money to send them to some sort of Cordon Bleu finishing school, wow. dream on.
