Kat was working a long, cold shift last night finishing at 6.00 a.m. this morning. She ‘phoned to ask if she could come home to sleep as there was noisy building work outside her barracks. We told her she didn’t have to ask. She replied that she had been brought up to be polite!
Rick was ecstatic when she walked through the door at breakfast time although he can’t understand now why he can’t go into her bedroom and sleep with her. We are tip toeing around the flat trying to be as quiet as mice and stop Rick from barking.
“I think I’ll do some baking.”
“Can you bake quietly?”
“Of course I can.”
Of course I can’t. It was like I was suddenly suffering from Tourette’s Syndrome or performing Bjork's It's Oh So Quiet. The harder I tried to be quiet the clumsier I became. I seemd to have no control over my movements. First the stack of baking trays in the cupboards toppled over. Then I knocked the coffee bean tin onto the floor. When the oven timer went off I stabbed wildly at the button trying to turn off the loud beeping. I was a nervous wreck by the time I finished.
The cakes turned out nice though. And Kat hasn’t come out of her bedroom yet so she must be fast asleep. Shhh.

You should have gone out for eight hours - allowing Kat to sleep peacefully. By the sound of it, she would have been better off snoozing in her barracks.ReplyDelete
It was too cold to go out for eight hours.Delete
You could have kept warm in the Calne Heritage Centre.Delete
Don't worry, you can offer her a plate of cakes and a cuppa as a peace offering when she wakes up. Rick will be delighted to hoover up the crumbs.ReplyDelete
I didn't hear a thing, nothing was going to wake me up today.....except for lunch, my sixth sense that lunch was on the table woke me up!ReplyDelete
That was like magic when you appeared as lunch was put on the table!Delete
Mmmm, they look nice. How about sharing the recipe?ReplyDelete
They're special low cholesterol ones made with sunflower and oats.Delete
Those rock cakes look simply delicious and I bet that they taste nice too :-)ReplyDelete
They're not too sweet,that's the way I like them.Delete
Me too, I cannot abide sweet it kills the flavour of the ingredients.Delete
The last lot of Rock Cakes that Lady M made could have been used at a Coconut Shy.ReplyDelete
Just like mine! They bounce if I drop them on the floor.Delete
This was funny and Kat slept right through it all!ReplyDelete
I have bought all the ingredients to make "your" Dundee cake recipe again this year Sue. It turned out to be a great success last year.
Greetings Maria x
I shall be making mine just before Christmas. It never fails to please.Delete
