It may not be the Oscars but…

Hey Bagel lovers,
First of all, big Bross Bagel thank you for all your votes in the long list for The List’s Readers Award. The fantastic news is – we made the shortlist and are in the Top 5. The not so fantastic news is – you have to vote again! Look, if Theresa can do it. …!
It’s almost Easter – can you believe that!? I mean I know we still have Scotland’s second winter to get through, but this year seems to be going in a flash. Mother’s Day is THIS Sunday. That annual day of the year when Mothers everywhere get rewarded for their daily commitment to raising children by getting woken from their hangover at 5am to see their oﬀspring proudly presenting them with something that wasn’t edible before they burnt it, while Daddy gleefully destroys the living room trying to stop the dog from being on fire. It’s such a beautiful, peaceful start to the day, don’t you think?
Anyway here’s to the mums, my own most of all who has to put up with me talking about my hole all the time. I’m lucky she is Canadian and thinks a ‘double entendre’ is what you call a waiter in French Montreal. As a Mother’s Day present – I’m sending her some bagels, and for those of you who think that’s mean spirited – you weren’t there for the Christmas I got given tokens for a shrink.
Anyway, be nice to your mothers, and mothers, don’t raise your expectations too high.. just think of the hole there would be, if it weren’t for your children…
