One of the challenges of writing for the magazine is the need to put things together well ahead of publication date. As a result, I’m putting the final rather-later-than-they-should-be touches to a Gear Guide on picnics today, which is scheduled for March’s issue.
We had a successful test of a Stainless Steel Lunchbox from Bush Gear (pictured) a couple of weeks ago, though the contents were consumed inside school rather than sitting on a picnic mat.
Its sturdy design and two compartments (keeping the pasta away from the salad, so the salad remained crisp) was a great success. The Lunchbox's big brother, the three-part Tiffin Carrier, will be appearing in March’s Gear Guide.

Her interests are wide and include the Club’s Archive – though she’s careful to wash her hands after checking 1919 editions of the Club’s magazine to avoid lurking traces of influenza.
