I was relieved to learn that the messy holiday cottage in Lanarkshire was not, in fact, ours. My parents had bought it with my middle sister and her husband – and then filled it to the brim with junk.
I saw that there were at least two Le Creuset measuring spoon sets hanging from hooks in the kitchen. Nobody would mind if I took one, would they? The mini-pans were so cute, especially in volcanic and yellow.
