Isle of wight?

My Mam had a cast iron bakestone - it was ridiculously heavy.   She tried to give it to me recently as she can't lift it any more but  neither can I (plus it would probably wreck my ceramic hob).  I bought a large heavy based frying pan to cook my welshcakes which I keep hidden at the back of the cupboard - woe betide anyone who tries to use it to cook anything else!!

FYI Geoffrey - tomorrow in Welsh Wales people of all ages will be dressing up in silly outfits with tall hats, will have leeks or daffodils pinned to their jackets and will be singing all day in a strange language.  Nothing unusual at all!

Bridgend Ben - we're slowly taking over here

I am sorry to say I am not welsh, have no welsh relatives. The only time i went to Wales was when I landed in Cardiff on a flight from Leeds Bradford to Chanel islands. Was cheaper to touch down in Wales than fly direct. However have a few friends from wales. Happy st David's day to you all ???

My sis does lots of baking Caz, she tried to use mam's bakestone, but it wasn't flat any more and the cakes kept burning.

Geoff, we Welsh are patriotic you know! Especially when we don't live in Wales any more, need to maintain our identity!
