Ok, ok, I give in! I was going to show you this on Wednesday, but as ever, I bow down to popular demand! This cake has gone to a work colleague of a friend. Apparently every day at about 11 am this man unwraps 3 custard cream biscuits for his elevenses. Never changes, always the same, so for his birthday, they thought that this cake would be a good idea. I did wonder about making a bite out of the corner, but hey, who would then eat the 'bite'? Any volunteers for next time? (Sorry Dee, you're out of this one, unless of course I use up all that gluten-free flour I've got...)
Today was back to school day for all the staff (I'm a teaching assistant for a reception class for all of you who don't know me). And hooray and hallelieuia, my own children go back tomorrow. Ah. slight draw back there. I lose 2 and gain 30. Hmm. Should I really be celebrating? Yes of course. How much trouble can 30 four and five year olds be?
I had to take my own dear children to football training tonight. As it was only for an hour, I decided to stay - took my knitting of course to while away the tedium (not really boys, I love to watch you train). I made a flower today. I love making flowers - this one is to go on a cardigan (rib and cable jacket from Debbie Bliss's new book). Have now finished the back, just the sleeves , fronts and collar to go. Wish it would knit as quickly as the flower. Maybe will show you a picture of that another day... if you're interested, you'll have to come back tomorrow.
But of course, if you're not interested, bye bye and it was nice knowing you!
