I have been told by people in the know, that I tend to paint a more rosy picture on this blog than what actually goes on in real life. Ofcourse I don't lie or fib but I probably do leave out the things that are not successful or as nice. I don't really know whay anyone would want to read the good let alone the bad. To prevent further rebuking from my husband and sisters, I will show some of the minor hiccups we have from time-to-time.
Thankfully, I can't take credit for this wee baking mishap. Hope was given free range to cook a batch of patty cakes alone on the weekend. Grace helped her with the oven and made sure the measurements were accurate. So I guess it was just a bad recipe. I did taste the cakes and I think there was too much baking soda in them and as the recipe did say 1 tablespoon, maybe it was the recipes fault. The chooks didn't mind them though.
I do love my pets but when I found this photo on my camera, I realised that I don't love them as much as my children do. While Grace was working on her science at the kitchen table, she allowed Puss to drink the water from the candle bowl. I'm not sure I would accept a dinner invitation to my house. Apparently this wasn't the first time it had happened.
I'm off to clean the table,
