Walnut boards always makes me think of Aero chocolate bars… which I haven’t even had for years.
It’s these lovely little pieces of bubbly grained English Walnut boards, they’re busier than one of Peter’s Hawaiian shirts! And speaking of the Master & Commander of the Kiln Dried Shed, he’s been having a tidy up in the English Walnut bay because the new stock is in and he’s chopped off some long ends because they make his bay look untidy.
What a neat freak!
