Saturday, December 5
Cleo and Gary left the cottage together once Grit and Toni had appeared to take charge of the infants. The big girls were going to meet for a biscuit-making session at Cecelia William’s house down the road. Their school-friend’s mother was German and observed all the best German traditions all the year round, and that included making mountains of biscuits for Advent. A nice custom, Gary thought as he handed Charlie a twenty pound note to pay for some of the ingredients. After all, he would probably eat most of the biscuits.
