Today’s things are: cotton candy, Snakes & Ladders, pinwheel

Today in class Miss Teresa played a game of remember when. For her being the age, she was she had a lot more to ‘remember when’ than did we kids.

She came with an arm full of games, the like we’d never seen before. Snakes and Ladders landed on my desk and Dango, and I set to figuring out how it worked. There was no button to turn it on, no lights to fiddle with, but simply a board with snakes and ladders all over it. Miss Teresa called us to attention and instructed u on how to play. Start at the start and go up the ladder and down the snake. It was a bit of fun but nothing as exciting as Fortnite I had been playing at home.

After a while, she announced she had bought in some food for us to try. Her boyfriend, Mr Jack, had made pinwheels. Most of us had never heard of them, but once we’d tasted them, they were declared a winner.

Then she bought out her cotton candy machine, and after a bit of a start, we realized she was making fairy floss which we had all seen at the last school fete.

Miss Teresa liked to impress us with her worldliness and the fact she had once been on a holiday to the USA.

Overall Dango and I thought it was a fun way to put in an afternoon.

      In my part of the world pinwheels are a stick of cabanosi rolled in pastry, cooked and cut into little pieces for eating.

        I make pinwheels a couple of different ways. One is a chocolate and vanilla cookie, and the other is cinnamon & sugar spread on pie dough and rolled. Both are baked and sliced thin. Now I’m getting hungry…lol
