  1. As much fun as it’s been, and as sad as it will be to leave, I’m not sure I can keep up this level of social activity (and cake consumption) for much longer!

    Michelle – the sponge rolls are easy, only take about twenty minutes all up. What I love about them is that everyone is seriously impressed and they actually take so little effort! I brought one round to a friend’s house on Saturday too. But last night I had a slice of one of Grandma’s, and I’m not sure mine are quite as good as her’s…

  2. Phew I’m exhausted and full of lunch and dinner and coffee and cake. Sounds like you’re having a wonderful time. Lovely family photo on Facebook.
