Leaving The Cake Out In The Rain

"I was so naive as a kid I used to sneak behind the barn and do nothing," - Johnny Carson
Welcome to my Saturday­čą«
I have the cake being judged later...
Sleepless night doing lots of tossing and turning...
 Hug and brew first.
Out in Sexy Beast↓

 The view of the church.
We get the balloons,
Go off to enjoy coffee while they are blown up↓

 Back to Sexy Beast↓

Quick peek in the newspaper↓

 Catch up on some programmes we taped↓
 Nervous about the judging of my cake↓
Off to the  Redditch LGBTQ Support Services BBQ and to see how my cake has gone on in the LGBTQ Bake Off↓
While the judges added up their marks.
Suddenly started to rain...
I'm not leaving cake out in the rain.
We hurry the cakes indoors ready to hear how everyone got on.
The moon cake came first.
Whoo hoo I came second \o/
All the cakes were then cut up and sold to help with the Pride Event in Redditch next year.
(Over £100 was raised \o/)
I swapped my second place prize of a bottle of white wine for some lovely Avon products.
(As I have been tea-total for 7 years)
We all had a great chat.
I was so proud of finishing second...
 Then off to do our food shopping↓
 Pity I don't drink↑
 I got one already↑
Gets back,
Gives my neighbour his shopping.
Unpacks ours.
Nice beefburgers in a bun for tea.
I put my Certificate next to our wedding photo in the hall↓
I was asked to make some black facemasks for a dear friend.
The only black material I had featured red dots on...
Off to Dunelm tomorrow, as younger son wants some black facemasks for school.
More of NYPD Blue↓
With some sleep tea↓
 Off for some walking tomorrow to walk off the cake I ate!
