A very merry trifle

When glamourous Jumeira media couple Kiki and Maurice promise "just a very casual barbecue, picnic-style in the garden" one knows it is time to starch the collars and press on the dress studs.

For as an Acolyte of the Cult of The One, it is haram for Kiki to perform any entertainment rituals without first laying the altar with full candelabras, gold-embroidered cloths and a sixteen-piece solid silver cutlery service. Installing crystal chandeliers al fresco is no mean feat, but Maurice and the faithful neem tree rise nobly to the occasion.

But there is a slight hiccup when the pudding arrives, a magnificent raspberry trifle. It transpires that Kiki has misheard "use a good bit of sherry" for "use a good bottle of sherry". The result is a trifle so alcoholic that her two cats collapse from the fumes.

Reading this article got me so excited that my knees turned to jelly - but they'll be alright in a trifle.

With apologies to Tommy Cooper
