Toaster, teapot with cosy and kettle carefully arranged on the kitchen worktop and as he left them. Even when he was quite poorly he was meticulous at organising his space. A slice of toast, or cheese on toast with a cup of tea, was my dad’s first choice for breakfast. A cup of tea and a biscuit, or a sandwich, was always offered to visitors. He was a generous man and always considered himself to be ‘well off’; thankful for what he had, he never envied others. When I worked with him in my student days, the very first thing we did after lighting the furnace was to balance the kettle on the edge of the crucible and have a cup of tea; it was often made with sterilized milk, which probably tasted dreadful though my memory says not.
