We return from our morning visit to the bakers to find Madame Bay sitting in the kitchen chatting to 'the font' . Madame Bay has returned from Boston bringing with her a collection of tiny jello cartons 'liberated' from the restaurant of their hotel. These now sit in a small pile in the middle of the kitchen table. '' I thought you'd like them ". The emphasis is on the "you". This implies that Madame Bay and her fellow travellers have tried them and found them unpalatable. '' It's a shame to waste them " she adds as an after thought. ' There's nothing Angus loves more ' says 'the font' with a degree of enthusiasm rarely heard when breakfast jello is being discussed. Angus thinks that there are many, many, things that he likes more than grape flavoured jello. However, he keeps this thought to himself.
The battle of wills over Sophie's digging continues. Stones are placed in the bottom of the hole before it is filled in for the fourth time. This will hopefully put an end to it.
