Was it a good idea...

... to come home from eldest son's football training at 9pm and decide to put a Christmas Cake in the oven? A cake that is going to take 5 hours to cook? No, I didn't think so either. But like the stupid idiot that I am, I did it.

It was a sub-concious rationale to allow you to watch the election results wasn't it?

Mmmm...maybe not the best timing but well done on getting it in the oven. Mine is still at the 'need to buy the ingredients' stage!!

LOL. That's just the kind of thing I do. They alway seem like good ideas at the time, don't they?

Hope the cake turned out ok.

My mother did that every year and the house smelt fantastic when we woke up.

Do you reckon I'll ever be grown up enough to make a proper Christmas cake?



No?
