M is for!

Regretably I, have missed a few ABC letters recently.
But, this weeks, must stand for Marmalade or marvelously manufactured Marmite.
Now, I like Mother, much prefer savoury Marmite.
Hot toasted buttered Crumpets spread with said Marmite & served with cool crisp Cucumber slices - yummy, yummy!
Yet, hug member Paddington is now torn between the two.
His original love was Marmalade.
But, a recent advertising campaign has seen him favour Marmite...

Last July, he, Paddington celebrated his 50th Bearday!
It seems hard to believe that it is that long since, author
Michael Bond, first wrote about the arrival of a small, blue duffle coated, bear from deepest, darkest Peru, @ Paddington Station, baring that most famous label "Please look after this Bear. Thank you."
Mother, finally acquired her very own cuddlesome Paddington, anniversary edition no less then.
He arrived home in her wicker basket...
Well, she was not going to make him travel in a plastic bag @ his mature age.

Am posting a day early, as a certain disgruntled Wheelie boy, insists on having a say tomorrow!

We've tasted orange marmalade before, Woodstock, but never marmite! We're feeling deprived!

Love ya lots,

Hi Woodstock,
I've never tasted marmite, but have heard it is offensive to the taste buds, so I'll pick marmalade for my morning toast.
