Squiggly bit that spoils it

We went out for a pub lunch yesterday, abandoning my poor disabled daddy.

The sweet was a lovely Bakewell tart flavoured cheesecake.It was delicious and subtly flavoured with almond,once I had scraped off the totally unnecessary pink sauce that tasted of synthetic strawberry and that had been flicked over it.

Don't tell me they had stuck a mint leaf on the top too, now that would have irritated me...lolol

I tried to ring you yesterday Sharron. Might've guessed you were down the pub again.
