I haven't really had the time or the inclination to write a post for the last month.
I do want to keep this blog of mine going, if only for a record of what i'm up to as it's nice to look back on, so here i am again with a catch up of this past week.
Yesterday was Oliver sixth birthday and as he is into Halloween I made him a spider cake with Halloween sweets inside.
It wasn't perfect, I just winged it with the decorations after looking at some pictures on Google, but Oliver was well impressed, but then, six year olds don't tend to look too closely for imperfections and mistakes do they?
We also had our Macmillan Coffee Morning at work on Monday, so my Sunday was spent mostly in the kitchen.
There was only myself and two other ladies who volunteered to make anything, it's surprising how some people suddenly become good at avoidance tactics when they think they might be asked to contribute something Isn't it?
I made the cupcakes, carrot cake and pastries, another made a Victoria sponge and the third made some bacon pastries, which went down really well, as you might expect.
We are still selling the coffee pods for the fancy coffee machine we have in the kitchen, and the game card is still running until Friday to guess the length of the veggie roll, I'm hoping to catch people to collect their change when they order their Friday breakfast sandwiches, again, getting people to make a small donation, even when it's for such a good cause is harder work than you think, but I'll be rattling the collection box at them anyway and counting our total on Friday lunchtime.
See you soon with another catch-up post :-)
