I made a wedding cake using spelt for one tier. - nightmare - practiced on OH uncle till he said taste and texture was OK.

Got to start pratising after Christmas for another one - I think they want a choco one, as not to keen on chocolate so will have to find a willing volunteer or 2 to taste - L daughter and daughters partner I think at moment

Jo yesterday after i said about daughter asking if she wants help now I had text a asking if you have to get special detergent if there is something that needs hand washing - so now I am a walking cookery book, and a cleaning book. Great

Where we used to live - Cannock Chase - there is a Santa. The present for seeing Santa was a very small pine tree. The children thought it was lovely and was carefully planted in the front garden so that when it grew it would be easy to put lights on. The grass grew very long that year and OH did the first mow of spring forgot about the tree and ..... can guess the rest
