Could also have been a sugar rush, there's a lot of sugar in Liqourice Allsorts :grin:

Back to the topic - our teachers used to walk round the dining room making sure none of us were holding our knives like a pen.
Say only a little but say it well.

I'd forgotten that Moh but yes, ours did the same. In those days there was no kitchen and the dinners came in big aluminium hot boxes by van from a central kitchen run by the council. I remember them being stacked in the large hearth in front of the big coke fire to keep them as warm as possible. We ate them in front of the fire at Hope Memorial in the 1940s.
