Chip butties




Now you must be wondering why on earth I am doing a post about chip butties ??  Well I haven't had one for years and years and they bring back memories of when I use to work in a hairdressers over thirty years ago,  we had a pub down the road from us and in the winter we use to go down and order chip butties for out lunch !!   How warm and cosy were they....

Anyhoo how they came about today is the reason I am blogging about them.  I'm now a mobile hairdresser and mainly my ladies are older and house bound for one  reason or another.  Hilda is 96 and the power was being cut off while they do some tree trimming so she has no electric today. The last time it happened and she was off for several days,   nobody gave her a thought and she went without a hot drink and hot food for several days !!   She is a proud lady and wouldn't ask for help....
 
This time it wasn't going to be the same, hence I took her a flask of tea and fish and chips for her lunch.  Still nobody other than me has called on her......
 
Please, please please give an elderly friend or neighbour a thought when its cold or the power is off...it means so much and brightens their day .........

what a lovely lady you are diane - what you have done is so very important - I fondly remember feeding my neighbour Doris on many occasions - unfortunately she's no longer with us and I'm so busy with Shaun - but I will bear this in mind! Hugs rachel xx
