A crumb-tray's not a dust-pan, hen!
It's a recycling tool, a wee tray for collecting food crumbs.
When yer finished yer dinner, brush the crumbs off yer table cloth into the crumb-tray...
they can be used to coat the kippers for yer next meal. :)

Re: To see you

Hi Virginia
The word 'surreptitious' is the only word in this that jars for me. I think it takes from the mood.
Again you've created a really atmospheric piece.
I'd look forward to more, but that seems exploitative because they're all so sad.

Another moving vignette, Virginia.
