I have driven (yes, that's how desperate we were for food from a real chippy) round the four traditional chip shops in the immediate vicinity and all of them have their shutters down. The next frying time is Monday lunch time at 11.30am!
Why? What happened to traditional Lancashire Saturday afternoon chomping? Or is it all about Friday Chippy Tea like the Lancashire Hotpots suggest?
I have ended up having egg on toast with Jake (who makes brilliant fried eggs, by the way), Michael has had some cereal and Kev made proper chips out of real potatoes!
