Frustrating weekend


I made my first Christmas cake on Friday and I was a little disappointed as it sunk in the middle, yesterday I found out why!!! I made another cake and baked it in the small oven, I went to put last nights tea of meat and potato pie, with crust to cook and found my oven knackered again,!!!! only 2nd time I have used it after paying over £100.00 to have it repaired......... Oh, I DID laugh!!!! as you can imagine, the air was blue and I had to take my pie to my neighbour who cooked it for me!!!! (Christmas cake was cooking till 7.30pm) Sat down after with a glass of red and watched Rod Stewart !!
I have been to visit Aunty Sue every day and she is recuperating well, so easy to visit as she is very near to me, today I took a bacon and egg sandwich for her breakfast and a chicken sandwich for later lol

Todays card I hope to get into a couple of challenges, one was a sketch, but I have missed that as it finished last night!

Sweet image and lovely card Tilly! Your story reminded me of one Christmas when the kids were small and I had to get the gas man out on Christmas Eve because my oven wouldn't work - all I had was the pilot light! xx
