No overtime available this weekend, so I came home and did a baking instead. Made a bakewell cake and topped it with an almond flavoured icing, coloured some of it blue and make a pattern on it.

It has rained here, rained heavy along with high winds. Sadly most of the rain seems to hit the front of the house, and the living room windows have an issue with that. This is a common sight. New windows are on the cards this summer.

Dropped into daughters on the way back. Bob was in the bath, so I sneaked in to get a photo of the day. He saw me coming and decided to turn his water pistol on me. Loved the way the flash lit up the water as it came to get me.

Saw this parked outside the house. Took this from the upstairs window, it just appealed to me. Not the best picture of a black mini at night with the street light shining down.

Bob and I did some baking today. I had defrosted the freezer and found some blackberries we picked last year and decided to use some. Bob made a pear, banana and blackberry crumble and helped me make pear and blackberry pies. He prepared all the fruit, made his own crumble and added the filling to our pies.

I drop Bob at toddlers on a Friday morning. I got Dinky out of her pram and sat her in the bouncy chair. She loves to watch what is going on. She had been at the doctors during the week as her eczema is getting bad. She now officially has moisturiser and steroids to help it. Wonder what other issues she may have once weaned.
The twins have both been started on baby rice this week, she loves it and sits with her mouth open and it cant be shovelled in quick enough. Minky is not quite as interested just yet.

Using the last week of my work holidays and we went off today to meet with daughter No 2's future in laws. We met on neutral territory for a meal. This was mine, for some strange reason not a plate in sight. This is their steak burger with onion rings coleslaw and a portion of chips. Very nice it was too, as were the in-laws.
