In happier news, I opened the Mid-kid cupboard this afternoon after the kids were gone and saw a bright red bag sitting on the shelf. 'Hey!' I said, 'mooncakes! Did T's mom bring them in?' 'No, T's Dad. You want them? I don't like them and Other Staff said they're too sweet for her.' Oh yes I want them. Swiped the box of four. And then, on conscience-stricken reflection, put two back, because our infant part-timer wanted mooncakes too but couldn't find any. She can have them Monday.
And yes, they are very very good. Standard lotus paste but... very very good.
