I Can See For Miles & Miles..

Welcome to my Thursday...
 A bit earlier for a cupcake↑↑↑
Once everyone left the house.
I went outside for some fresh air...↓
 Tidied up the house...
 Coffee, banana and catch up of newspapers
Is it going to rain??? 
 The farmer busy cutting down the hedges..
 The path to the Jinney Ring is clear
 All the crops have been harvested
 The tractor in the distance...
 It was threating to rain during the dinner time.
Gets back to Sexy Beast, and it pours down all the way home..
 Now to do some chop chop before my kids come home from school.
Chicken Tart with Red Pesto with Asparagus.
 Went to other Job
Made some men laugh....:)
Back home to dish up tea...
Had a lovely massage from hubby...
Then I did likewise with my warm hands ;)

Drama & Crisis Rolled Into Cake!

Today was the day I was going to make that cake.....
I got out of the house to get some milk from Lidl...
 I asked in Lidl if they sold the Wonky box.
They didn't :(
 Dunelm selling nice stuff...↑↑
Now to start on the cake finally...
Wrote out the recipe..
 Things didn't start brilliantly when I discovered we had no coco powder!
Into Sexy Beast to get some...
 I decide to use Kane the Kenwood this time.
It didn't help, that as soon I turned him on.
He went way too fast, and I lost most of the mixture through the gaping hole of the lid...
 I added some more mixture, and poured it into the cake tins..
Into the oven it went...
Time for much needed Coffee....
 Once the chocolate sponges were cooled down, I knew I was going to have problems...
I made the peppermint chocolate mix to go in the middle of the cake. The top sponge was falling apart. I add the shiny chocolate for the top of the cake....
Oh dear, this isn't going to end right....
I made a chocolate collar and put it in the fridge to set...
In the meantime...
It's tea time...
 Chop Chop Time.
 Vegetables in Creamy Mustard Sauce with Chorizo
To the sound of groans in my house..
Back to watch more Bake Off...

Clipping The Bush

I woke up like it was a week day.
Played with hubby...
Then by magic, tea appeared!
We heard our son's Birthday request for Friday heard on our local radio station.
While hubby went to do my dad's shopping.
 I clipped the bush back..↑↑↑
 Lovely blue skies..
 Sat in the shade while waiting for hubby to come back home.
 Hubby came back home.
We went off to do our shopping.
As we were going into the car park,
I saw a former work friend. I shouted hello to him. Ignored and blanked me!!!
That's nice, considering I made him a Birthday Cake back in September 2012
 Man Bonking Sheep Cake
We parks the car, and does out Lidl Shopping.
 Back home to unload the shopping.
 Sits in the front garden to enjoy some nice herbal tea.
It doesn't help with the refrigeration lorries being charged up with diesel, making a noise.No windows be left open tonight.
 Picked some strawberries that were growing in our garden.
Now for chop chop...
Cauliflower, Hazelnuts, Mustard Mash, Peas & Carrots.
Hubby and kids gets their things ready for work and school tomorrow.
I meanwhile plan for my son's Birthday cake I have to make.... 
Time to dig out that bikini for tomorrow!πŸ‘™

I had no fruit or nut in the house :(
Just had to enjoy coffee on its own...⛾↓
 Waiting for THE LETTER to confirm what I have known for the past week....I have a certain job, I won't be having in September...
I had a choice of having the last remaining 
cheese & bread or a can of beans for lunch..
 *Cheese on Toast won....*
Then I started to write out this week's shopping list..
 I needed to get out of the house.
I went to visit my dad.
Enjoyed the sunshine in the garden with coffee...
 The clouds are coming in.
My dad watching some films on Film Four..
I said goodbye and see him tomorrow.
I gets home and did have the letter.
It said what I knew already.
