As you may have noticed I don't need much of an excuse to bake a cake or two.
Today I have several excuses:
1) It's Friday
2) It's the start of a bank holiday weekend
3) It's the start of half-term week
4) It's Tom's last day at school
5) It's George's last day at sixth form college
6) I now have only one school aged child
Six excuses warrant cake with icing. And a cherry on top.
They might take my mind off the howling wind which is wreaking havoc among my quince blossom.
