When the children went to school this week I cleared the worktops and set about making them a cake. It was for them to eat when they got home from school.

I generally make cakes from scratch, including the butter cream filling and the icing. The only thing I might use a packet for, is if I make a cheesecake.Then I cheat use my initiative and use a packet of Greens Cheesecake mix.

 When the children walk in the door, they are ravenous. Usually they will each devour a bowl of cereal, have sandwiches or both when they get in. 

Despite eating a lunch at school, by the time they have arrived home, they are hungry again. 

As I no longer pick Katie up from school, I have now started cooking tea earlier and when they walk in the door around 4pm, tea is already on the go. That way tea can be on the table around 5pm, when despite eating sandwiches, cereal and cake, they are still hungry....

As you can imagine, this cake did not last long, there is no such thing as a small slice when termites/piranha children are inhaling eating cake in this house.

I will endeavor to do better. Please don't think I will not be back, I will, but I need to get my self back into the habitof blogging again, please bear with me :)

Inthe mean time, I have taken some pictures of trees back in October that I need to show you, I made jam, I have been looking for a job, I have knitted one and a half scarves, I have had my feet x-rayed, the children have all grown an inch and I have lost 10 pounds. I will blog tomorrow when I am on my own computer (I am onJim's, which asa temperamental spacebar) and no uploaded photos.. I will be back tomorrow, I promise :)
