This isn’t a cooking blog, but I’ve been a little off my game lately and this is the latest story. I purchased this cake pan from the Op Shop last week for $2. I’m normally quite rational with Op Shop purchases. “Do I really need it?” swirls around in my head while I contemplate every purchase, but my husband (yes, he came to the Op Shop with all three kids) thought it was a good buy.
Yep, just what I needed. How retro! This is my version, with just food colouring. My husband made me change his shirt buttons to start his new job, but I’m not sure how easy it is to hide bright pink cake in the lunch shed! ha ha ha!
I wish I had enough batter to make the three tiered version, but ran short. Still it was delicious.
In other non-sewing related news:
- School drop-offs make the day incredibly short, but Ollie still loves it,
- Adele is kinda toilet training. In the sense that she gets my undivided attention all day, then the second I turn my back she wees on the carpet or lounge. ewwww!
- James is loud. Louder than ever before. Poor middle child!
We have also decided that I will give Ollie another week or so more to settle into school before I start looking into getting work. Normally I’d be cheering with this extra kiddie free time, but I’ve lost my sew-jo and surprisingly, am a little sad about Ollie being at school. The day is so short! How will I ever survive working in those tiny hours?
Anyway, in other sewing related news, I have finished a Rooibos. Hopefully the kids will let me take photos for you tomorrow.
Hope you are enjoying your time at your machine!
