For the record
Syrup (Lyle’s of course) ✓
Spoon (favourite bear spoon, but not really mine) ✓
Spurtle (a finely crafted implement for stirring porridge; basically a long stick) ✓
Favourite polar bear bowl (how long will the crack hold together?) ✓
I’m home from my swim on the first really cold morning of the Autumn, ready and waiting to stir my porridge.
(though I did make some really yummy granola yesterday)
