      The book was for Ken, but it still goes down on my side of the tally because I spent it. As to the tea pot: either something very silly e.g. a teapot in the shape of Chaucer/a dragon / a JCB, or something classic that will pour well (not that you really know until you buy it. In Scotland I once bought a teapot in a cafe because they served tea to customers in the same type of pot and it seemed to work beautifully; but the one we took home slopped all over the place).

    Eek! Apples are expensive in Ireland – unless of course he bought several Kilos. Perhaps an apple tree would make a good ‘house’ present. I still have a few from our autumn crop but they are all rather small as we have eaten the better ones.

      8 small apples. The per kilo price was €3.50/kg. Rip Off Ireland is alive and well.You can however get cheaper ones. At Lidl, the cheapest apples are €1.49/kg. I bought these from a local greengrocer because I wanted to avoid doing a big shop.

    My great aunt Bertha would have made clerks fetch a pitcher of water and a tea cup and demonstrate the various spouts. Aunt Bertie had that effect on people.
