I still feel weak, and doubt that I can step out tomorrow to buy necessities. This started last week when i was rummaging in my kitchen. It was cold while I busily lifted things around, the room still looks like a minor construction side.
I asked a young man to buy me things because I really was wobbly, he fulfilled his task with admirable abandon, I was even given a home made semolina pudding and a chocolate blancmange (I hope this is the correct word for Schokoladenpudding, I never fully understood the English pudding language convention).

A picture is worth a thousand words. How do you call this “wrapper” ? It is an industrial product, it is sold & bought over the world, at least where mangos are grown, harvested, packed & shipped.

I could not find it – I blame the mush in my head ! Do you have any idea, venerated reader, how this mango thingy is officially called ?
