On the subject of bait/bate. In the 70s in Sussex, England, older workman would talk of having their bait/bate, meaning morning break. I haven’t heard the term used since, though.

It’s such a shame that the majority of the links in all the days’ annotations are broken. But as I am 17 years behind the first set of comments, I shouldn’t be too surprised. Even some of the 2005 links are 404s. Still enjoying this, though🙂

Jenny Doughty: yes I believe you are correct. Having suffered from this myself, your usage of ‘plump’ is about right (was this an intentional pun?!) I have purchased Sara George’s book and look forward to reading it - I hadn’t come across it before. Thank you for the heads up, as people say nowadays.

Laxatives: in the sixties, a school friend was given a dose of laxative regularly each Friday whether it was needed or not. Fortunately, with the trend for a high fibre diet nowadays, such cruelty is no longer needed!

Thanks, Sarah - different times certainly!

Am I reading this correctly- Mrs P was unwell and went to bed early but Samuel and Mr Hunt and Mr Spong spent some time singing. Poor Mrs P!
