A memorable breakfast

The Immediate Past Master of my Masonic Lodge stayed with Sue and I last night … and this morning we decided to try out a special breakfast service provided by a local company.

BEDNBREAKFASTTT deliver a fully-cooked breakfast – sourced from local suppliers – to your front door at a pre-arranged time. This morning we had four large sausages, six rashers of bacon, four fried eggs, baked beans, cooked tomatoes, cooked button mushrooms, four slices of toast, and two small bottles of freshly-pressed fruit juice … all for £15.00! All we had to do was unpack the food from its insulated packaging, put it on our plates, and eat it.

We don’t usually use fast-food takeaways … but we were very impressed by the food we ate this morning, and I suspect that we will be using BEDNBREAKFASTTT again in the future.

The young woman who runs this business was the person who delivered the food to our door. We looked at each other, and both of us recognised each other … but could not work out where from. Then the penny dropped … and we both realised that I had taught her nearly fifteen years ago!

It is nice to see that an ex-pupil has carved out a career for herself, and I wish her great success in her endeavours. She had become a teacher herself and worked abroad, where most people either ate out or ordered food to be delivered to their home. When she returned to the UK she adapted the idea to fill a niche in the market … and she is about to branch out into supplying cooked Sunday lunches as well!

    Sounds good (I have fond memories of English Breakfast from my travels in the UK). And that's cool that she was an old student of years. That must be one of the great rewards of teaching; seeing your students successes.

  2. Fitz-Badger,

    The English Breakfast is a great way to start the day … and a good one will keep you satisfied until the evening.

    It was very pleasing to see how my former student had turned out … and it reminded me that it was people like her who made being a teacher worthwhile. The vast majority of the people I taught we honest, upright, hard-working young people who were always appreciative of any efforts that you made on their behalf.

    All the best,

    I like the sound of this and a cracking price too!

  4. Francis Lee,

    The produce used was all top-rate, with really meaty sausages, great tasting bacon, and free-range eggs … and at a price local cafés could just about match.

    All the best,

    What a great idea!

  6. Alastair,

    And like all good ideas, it is essentially a simple one.

    All the best,
