Strange coincidence

It's a strange thing, but Sally Howe and I have both just returned from a trip to California. While I was there, I went to talk to a book group in Redwood City about Plotting for Beginners. The meeting was wonderful: they were all so friendly, and so funny. They have their meetings on Sunday mornings over a shared brunch, and the food they bring has to be mentioned in the book they're discussing, or to be inspired by the book. There were lots of scones and jam (seen as typically English) but the best offering that day - in my book (hah!) - was from Pam. She tried to get spaghetti hoops (Gus's favourite food) and went to the British shop, where she found Heinz spaghetti. Yeah!
