At school when i was young i won a prize for making shortbread.
I made it all by myself at home and took it to school in a tartan tin.
I remember forgetting all about it, after all the shortbread was made and handed in.
All i was thinking about was my mums tartan tin.
I was sure mum said i had to bring back the tartan tin, i assumed whether i won or not.
When i got home and gave mum back her tartan tin with the first prize rosette on.
I can’t remember what she said but she was happy to have her tin back, and surprised to see i’d won.
The other shortbread must have been bad i thought for my shortbread to win.
Then i thought, was my win all because of my mums tartan tin?
