I’m a bit down again at the moment. We all get our moments, don’t we? But we don’t all get our hubby making us a lovely cake to cheer us up. This is what my better half is on with at the moment. It’ll be very welcome, even if I do have to pedal harder on my cycle machine tomorrow , walk a few extra miles and generally move about a bit more to work it off. It’ll be lovely with a cup of Earl Grey later on.
What won’t be so lovely is the kitchen. Mr Whale tries his hardest to clean up the mess afterwards. A slimy, flour – coated dishcloth is dragged across the work surfaces and things are sort of washed up. It’s the flour:
- In the tumble drier?
- On and in the books.
- On the seat cushions, on the chairs.
- On the floor.
- On the downstairs loo, toilet seat?
- On the sofa?
- In the bedroom?
All little surprises, waiting to be found by me!
Yes, our house looks like a flour wonderland, when his lordship has finished doing his Mary Berry thing in the kitchen. Thank god I haven’t done the BIG CLEAN of the kitchen this week, just yet. Then he would have been in trouble, cake or no cake. I’m a hard woman! I can’t be won over with cake alone.
So, I’m going to do my online food shop and wait for Mary Berry to bake my cake, for my supper. Yummy.
As I type this I can hear the swifts screaming outside, as they fly overhead. The jackdaws are having a chinwag and there’s a lovely cakey smell starting to waft up from our kitchen. A warm summer evening, in our lovely part of Yorkshire.
There…I’m starting to feel better all ready!
I hope you’re having a lovely evening, wherever you are and whoever you’re with.
Until the next time!
