Today is World Porridge Day, which is being promoted by Mary’s Meals. Mary’s Meals provide a daily meal of maize porridge (likuni phala) to some of the world’s poorest children. It makes a bigger difference than you might think – for many children it’s the meal that allows them to attend school.

Insights, where I work,  supports Mary’s Meals, and today there are some themed activities and people were encouraged to wear tartan. You may remember Mary’s Meals was the charity supported by Martha Payne, who blogged about school dinners in Argyll a few years ago as NeverSeconds.

Not sure I’ll actually be indulging in any porridge as I hate the stuff, but I’ll be seeing what else I can do.

Nice tartan, both!

All this talk of porridge is making me want flapjacks...

I wondered if it was Black Watch! It is badass tartan :)

(Oddfellows are great, BTW. Having to keep them in a high cupboard to ration myself.)

They remind me of parma violets, but different flavours - yum!

Porridge is fine; tartan tends to be tasteless, though... The MacLeod of Lewis that puts the "loud" in "MacLeod" still gives me nightmares.

Black Watch and variants are fine; but anything that requires sunglasses to be looked at with comfort is plain disturbing.
