Dear Mum,

Dear Mum,

As we muddle through our lives on opposite sides of the Atlantic Ocean, there are always certain times when we are brought closer together, through our experiences. I feel closest to you when I am cutting my boys’ hair, making pastry, going for a walk… And making the Christmas pudding. I have found a silver lining to our distance from each other, and that is that I have had to figure out a way to get the wrapping tight without a second helper…


An elastic band! You’re welcome!

You merely need to place the elastic band around the parchment paper, then tie the string while it is nice and well-behaved. After cooking, place the elastic band again and restring, or wait until Christmas time and do the string then.


Your daughter
