Yes...this is ALL about me, and mine. Marvellously self indulgent, feel free to tell me how splendid I am, leave comments, nice ones please, I have little kids and teenagers who can do the rude stuff. I am a grandma, to the glorious Joshua, I'm allowed to look frazzled and weary, I earned it. The older I get, the more I see that hanging on and being patient is worth it! They ( whoever 'they' are) are so right when they say you never know what is around the corner, it isn't always an articulated truck! It is vital to make the time for making memories, friends are the greatest treasure, I love mine. I am rich!

When you're weary.....

I suggest that you walk right past anything that looks remotely like this.....

And you make something like this, homemade leek and potato soup, with real cream and nutmeg and serve with wholemeal crusty bread and butter.

And if it is still raining and cold, when the kids are in bed and life is looking grand but missing a certain something, have a slice of this...

Which is lemony and light and made by myself, such cake makes ones soul sing and toes will curl in a happy and guilt free way because something that tastes like this, is absolutely and perfectly good in every way.
You will be impressed to know that as well as eat this food today, I did absolutely nothing with regards the move. Nothing. In fact I had the most horrendous headache so I slept. What a marvellous and unproductive day. I rock.

I'm glad you were able to rest with your headache Helen. When my head hurts, that is all I want to do.

The lemon cake looks good! My family wouldn't like it though. Zachary would love his bread frosted, er, buttered like that! :) We always tease him that he frosts his bread.
