    "Hello, Borchester Bothies, the country cottage specialist, Mandy speaking. How may I help you? A cottage to rent? Certainly madam. Now we are a bit booked up over half-term week. In fact nearly all 15 of our cottages are booked out for that week already , but because it's really out of season at the moment you have pretty much got the pick of any other dates leading up to Christmas and New Year. Actually, we have a special offer on at the moment. We are providing a welcome pack at a very reasonable price. Oh the usual stuff, bread, milk, butter, a bit of cheese, eggs and a couple of packs of ready meals from a local supplier. Erm, let me see..... hungarian hot pepper pork meatballs, pork goulash with carrots, ham and leek bake. Yes they do all seem to be pork based - yes I understand that Mrs Aziz. So you wouldn't be interested in the welcome pack then? No. Just the cottage...."

Oh my goodness, I didn't realise you were THAT Jamier Oliver - no I quite understand you wouldn't want to be serving prepared ready meals high in fat and salt and sourced from an unknown supplier to your young children."

Wouldn't touch pork with a barge pole,especially non organic. In fact between ourselves I wouldn't eat anything from these people- they had to close their farm down last year after an outbreak of e coli. Terrible it was, a child nearly died."


    "Joe, it's Mandy here. About these cheapo ready meals you did the deal on?They aren't selling you know, to be honest no one's interested. I reckon you need to go back to the free bottle of wine and jar of your home made marmalade offer. And forget the breakfast packs too, most people say they'd rather have fresh croissants and access to a decent coffee maker....".

    I like it, but this one's more like "Reality Archers", compared with the main storyline!

    Oh, Vicky - after Tom and Brenda have cooked all those meals on the hotplate on the burger van, and got Feebs to design that pretty packaging. How could you be so cruel?
