Look what I made and I didn't use any glue - how unusual. This is my famous summer Tiramisu which I make for most family occasions. As my SIL and family are moving to Wokingham next week, we clubbed together to say goodbye and all brought a meal to my MIL's. My SIL made french onion soup which was, I have to say, out of this world. basic onions soup poured over the top of french stick with cheese. It was divine. My MIL made a tradish sunday roast which was also to die for. Then my effort was laid on the table. I was so proud of myself but worried about it being laden with over 3 trillion calories so I only had a small porsh. Simply made out of maderia cake drenched in bacardi combined with mascarpone cheese mixed with custard, whipped cream, strawberries and crushed amaretti bickies. Then decorated with more strawbs, amaretti bicks and shaved chocolate. If anyone wants the method of this recipe I'd be happy to mail you xx

Im torn on which classes to take as they are all above standard but heck, its a girls weekend away and my parents are up for sitting (loves ya). oooooooh and thanks, Jane xx
Yesterday saw me tidying up the hovel that is Belles bedroom. She has no room for anything so we ripped her cupboards bare and made three piles. One for the bin, one for the childrens hospital and one for saves. It broke her heart to part with things she never even played with but when I explained to her how sad it is to spend time in hospital with nothing to play with, her toys would make a great gift from her to make them feel better. Two large refuse bags for the hospital, 3 bags of rubbish and a semi-tidy room later we can heave a sigh of relief. But with her birthday and christmas looming - I kow its going to be chocka-block a again. Why do I bother?Am finishing off artwork right now whilst mark and belle are at the cinema so I should sign off for today.
