Fairy - chocolate cake - is there any other sort?  Made with my age old trusty recipe of weighing the eggs - never fails!  But you have to wait for icing else the maltesers will roll off ......

Ann - its Tracey who is off to Grasmere.

great to hear son's op went well Mrs G - and double great that job offers are coming in 

Cake is in the oven - decorating starts later.  Will post a pic if it turns out well!

Still raining - local river burst its banks again.  Never known weather like it - south westerners must be in despair.

Morning Archie, and happy hols Stacey, Tracey, Panda (and Mr Lizzie).  Think i could do with a mini holiday now - getting a bit ground down by the treadmill - and the weather tbh.

cake making this evening - in prep for littlest chicklet's birthday tomorrow.  Going to case it in maltesers and chocolate fingers, after inspiration from a pic on here recently.

hope you eventually got some sleep lily

Morning archie, Morning Lizzie.  Still wild here.  Off to negotiate my way to work through the tree debris ....
