Cambodians and Cornflakes
Next morning we make toast. This is fascinating for the girls; they have never seen a toaster or even eaten toast. Hesitant but hungry they are soon spreading, albeit it thinly, butter, marmalade and peanut butter over toast. And then they take seconds and thirds; the toast is a success.
Cornflakes and milk is another matter; the cornflakes go down well, but understandably milk is to them just, well, weird. Still, some liked it and no one starved. It was something different for them all, which is one of the reasons why they come to stay and now that they have all been here twice they tuck into breakfast keenly.
Cornflakes, please, but easy on the milk.
