Today we continue our ‘Poor Poor Pitiful MJ’ theme as I bemoan the fact that all you Brits are spending Mother’s Day with your mummies, eating Simnel Cake.
Yet I, an orphan, cannot enjoy the company of my mum since she passed away years ago.
(insert sounds of sobbing here)
Mother’s Day isn’t until May in Canada but that’s beside the point.
You and your mummies are all stuffing your faces on Simnel Cake, which, ‘til Geoff posted about it , I had never heard of nor eaten.
But apparently it’s what you do on Mother’s Day over there. And more Simnel Cake again at Easter.
Although I’ve never seen a Simnel Cake on Coronation Street so can it really be real?
I don’t suppose you’ll save me a slice.
You won’t even think about me, will you?
Sans Simnel Cake.
