A definite cake day!

Yesterday did not start well, with my son missing the bus to college and my daughter feeling too ill to walk to school. With friends my daughter walks with I ended up with 4 teenagers squashed into my little car and an unplanned 10 mile round trip.  Now the reason I don't normally take them, apart from independence is the time it takes to get through the traffic, and I have to say this is the first time this term I have needed to go to the college.  I knew the traffic would be bad but it seemed to be exceptionally so and it ended up taking almost an hour.  At that point I still had things to do at home and then get to work which naturally had to be at the furthest of the locations I work at!

As soon as I sat down and wrote the date I thought, typical, it had to be the 13th!  Anyway after a suitably busy day I felt a need for cakes.  Far more important at that point than housework or cooking dinner!


  1. I love your cake plate! I have some cups and saucers in that pattern - I think it has a delightfully retro air.

  2. I agree, it really spoke to me at the Vintage Fair, I just couldn't resist it. I love the fact that it isn't too large - in fact, just right for tea for 2 or 3, which is the usual case here.
