whilst doing the ironing this morning, I have made a MANCHESTER TART, so reminicent of school dinners. OH has been on about it for ages, so I thought I would treat him. Dead Easy.
After lunch I am making a Kentish Cobnut Cake, in between other jobs.

Island, I'll send a few down to your house LOLOL.
Better send Prickles Babes and Wend a few also, though I have not seen them about this morning.
Perhaps Prickles is Christmas shopping and Wend 'doing' lunch. LOLOL
Better not forget BarbinGlos.

Only one word I can think of Julia, Bakewell. :-D :-D :-D


Julia Report 14 Nov 2012 13:13

Yes Merlin, I can make a mean Bakewell. It is lovely walking around the town centre in the summer, only about 20 miles from here.
Prickles I don't mind ironing, but positively hate putting away, the same with shopping.
Barbra, only a small sliver for me, after the sugar readings.
Paula, I thought all us women could multi task. We were born to it. LOLOL
