Ah, weans. A west of Scotland home economics teacher was rattling through the S1 culinary lesson when she was interrupted by a visitor, who had come to arrange the school trip.

"I'll just be a minute," she advised her charges. "Anne-Marie, just separate these two eggs while I speak to this chap."

The lass ot the message all right. It was the execution that had heads shaking and wondering if she had ever seen Jamie Oliver or Delia on the telly.

She left one egg on the worktop and carried the second to the other side of the room, gently placing it on the window-sill.

Eggs well and truly separated.
