Having my cake and eating it

mmmm, cake week - so far we have made 3 lemon traybakes (I know that is excessive but one was for knit night and everyone loves them), a victoria sponge, a cherry cake and a Bradbury Biscuit Cake.

Making the cakes = stopping me from going insane - we have a house guest for a week, I have a busy work schedule and the kids have lots of extra extra curricular activities going on (that is not a typo, there are extra extras). Everyone is on their best behaviour, but we are all like little pots waiting to boil over. My Mother-in-Law arrives in a few hours and that will be a test of any virtues I may have pertaining too patience (frankly I don't have many).

The brightest star today is for May who is exactly 2 years old, we rescued her 9 months ago and she makes me smile

Our animal friends can be extremely grounding, can't they? We just need to listen to them...
