Have your cake and eat it

Well, after feeling guilty when the children came home on Thursday and asked if there was any cake, I got on and made a chocolate cake. I took 2 pictures, one when it was made and one about half an hour later, and now (Sunday morning) it's all gone, so I will have to make another one this afternoon. Well, at least they like my cooking. This chocolate cake is a staple favourite in our house. I even make it for a lady in a local coffee shop, where it sells really well. I used to make smaller ones, but they were eaten too quickly. I think I get through a food mixer a year!

Friday I went to the lambing shed, for my last shift (hooray) and swept all the floors up, and chucked the muck into a wheelbarrow. I kept hoping I would have lost weight, but in the evening I treated myself to a glass of wine and some chilli heatwave doritos, therefore, undoing all the hard work in the daytime.

I was talking to hubby about how you can motivate yourself, when you are not a motivated person. I never seem to finish anything. Knitting, dieting, shopping for yarn. I have lots of half started projects, and I do find it hard to get round to finishing them. I know some knitting it's difficult because you have to be able to knit in quiet, to count so there's only certain times that you can do that.

I went to a friends surprise 40th yesterday. My mum looked after the boys at her house, and the girls were busy with friends. It was lovely to see my friend, as I only see her about once a year. She only lives about 30 miles away, but life seems to get so busy. It was really nice to catch up with a lot of friends. And not so nice when you realise that 40 happened nearly 3 years ago, where did that time go. Talking of time, I had better go, as still got dishes downstairs to tackle and children to motivate into getting out of bed ready for church. Bye for now.

  1. My goodness you do seem to have a busy life, as a farmer's daughter I can identify with that especially at lambing time. I hope you can find time for knitting and eating chocolate cake. I usually discipline myself to one article at a time, leads to less frustration and I particularly enjoy kniting socks as there is no stitching up and they don't go on too long.
