Lovely photo Carol, thanks for sharing.  I think I'll buy the Rinso and a new scrubbing brush  ;D.  Is that a cake on the right hand side?  If so, I'll have a slice of that too, all packed up in a lovely paper carrier bag.

It looks like a fruit loaf sat on a tin of Bartlett Pears  ;D I'll take the lace  cloth and the box of starch, also the embroidered bag to carry them home in  ;)

That cake looks similar to the one I'm having a slice of right now! My mum has made it for over 60 years, and the recipe is much older than that.

It won't be at its best for today's afternoon tea, but you can make your own. Our recipe is at http://andrewalston.co.uk/recipes.html#IrishFruitLoaf

  Thanks Andrew, I may try out the cake. I suppose it is nearly time to think about the Christmas cake as well.

And surely it is time to be putting the sprouts on to cook!  :-X
