Speaking of J.J.R. Tolkien, I came across this link the other day - he reads a poem in Elvish - and thought you might enjoy it:

I was thinking of treating myself to the 70th anniversary edition of The Hobbit (the one with Tolkien's original cover and illustrations). Now might be the time to click on the order button. Second breakfast sounds good to me but I will be doing pilates this morning so maybe tomorrow would be good day, particularly as 22nd September is both Bilbo's and Frodo's birthday.

Lucille

Great supporters of the second breakfast here too. Our late lamented cat used to favour second and third breakfasts.

Cornflower

I've seen it! Many thanks, Nancy, that is indeed a curiosity.

Cornflower

Tomorrow would be fine!

Breakfast can be such a good meal that having more than one is to be commended.

Dark Puss

I almost never eat anything savoury for breakfast these days and clearly on a Saturday you are not rushing off to a music lesson mid-morning! My local patisseries (only two ss down south though!) open around or before 08:00. I'll be happy to raise my cup of tea (without accompaniment) to Tolkein today however.

Cornflower

May I recommend Waitrose Three Malts Sourdough with Mixed Seeds, toasted and served with (raw) good tomatoes and olive oil?
On Saturdays breakfast number one is taken at about 6.30, number two around 8.15. Plenty of time for whatever morning activities are planned.
(Shall go and remove that rogue 's' ...thankyou!)

Dark Puss

Sorry, what I should have said was I don't like to eat much in advance of playing, not that second breakfast would clash with it! Thank you for the recommendation for 1st breakfast.

Darlene

My mouth is watering with your breakfast recommendation for Dark Puss! I'll be in London next month and consider Waitrose as an itinerary item. And yes, as someone with a blood sugar issue second breakfasts are a must!

Dark Puss

Fancy meeting the spiky cat when you are in London? I promise to keep my claws sheathed.

Cornflower

I'm sure hobbits everywhere agree with that sound medical reason for second-breakfasting!

Rebecca

Our high school librarian sponsored "Second Breakfast" for the school today--"no eating" rules temporarily lifted!--and we all baked alongside her to help feed enthusiastic teenagers, many of whom had skipped their first b'fasts! What a wonderfully warm and essentially hobbity way to celebrate. Hope yours was pleasant, also!
