Abbotsford spoon

I can’t compete with Private Eye “Me and My Spoon” but I have to record that I spotted a perfect miniature Abbotsford House on a spoon at my local coffee shop,¬†Filament, (they do have a diverse spoon collection as well as faultless coffee). Abbotsford was of course the home of author Sir Walter Scott, who practically defined the novel form, and whose house lies just around the corner from our very own Dingleton boiler house.
