It’s Willows birthday and I’ve been saving some flour ever since I realised i may not find some more in shops

Thought I would share a picture, we may run or walk later then i will post but for now here’s some cake and sorry it’s not a real piece for you all

That looks delicious Sola - and a virtual piece of cake is much better for me than the real thing!! Enjoy your outing later - it’s a lovely day here on the south coast!

Lovely! Good plan.

I had already made the middle grandsprocket’s cake last week - I usually make them a week ahead, freeze and then decorate just before - which was lucky as when his nursery had to close on Friday they told my daughter they’d have a birthday party there for him. Cue frantic cake decorating!

That’s a good idea, I never gave a thought to flour when everybody was buying up all the toilet rolls and i was wondering how long 3 would last

I thought I had more flour than I did 🤦‍♀️ but right now there’s only me in the house, and baking isn’t high on my list of things to do.

Hopefully husband will get home tomorrow 🤞

Let’s hope so, I’ve always got flour but last time i looked i have plain for biscuits but only enough self raising for one cake so it had to be Willows

Indeed. I’ve been working my way through my yarn stash scraps from other projects and made 4 single bed sized blankets so far. : have been gifted and gratefully received ( before soc. distancing).

Then I’m going to start working through my larger packs of yarn and making some spring/ summer tops and then some baby clothes for a friend due in 6 weeks.

Trying to resist baking as I know I will only eat it and there’s only me here now.... as it is I have 3 blackberry and apple pies in my freezer that keep tempting me .... 🙁🤣🤣 everytime I open it to cook something they call to me ..” eat me eat me “
