Before I forget

As I said in my last post, you can think of all sorts of witty and interesting things to blog about, till you sit in front of the blogging machine and PPHHHTT they're gone, well before I reply to all my lovely friends who were kind enough to reply I thought I'd blog this before I forget, which I'm bound to do,
Now it may not be witty or interesting, but, it's my little bit of cyber space and I'm using it. To the blog.
Took Ruby and Barney out this morning [remember Barney?] he's the dog I take out twice weekly as his Mum's mum is getting too old, she's almost 92 ! and sadly she is beginning to feel her age, she has been quite weak and poorly for a couple of weeks., say a little prayer for her if you're that way inclined. She took Barney out for her daughter twice weekly when she's on extra shifts up until three years ago, then I took over. She is one of the sweetest old ladies you could ever meet. Get well soon Joan.
So... we went along the beach as usual and boy was it cold, I shan't tell you the amount of clothing I was wearing, but Scott of the Antarctic would have been impressed.
Popped into the shops to buy some eggs and a lemon as I was hoping to do some baking. no problem with the eggs, but .... I would have had to buy 5 lemons... I don't want 5 lemons, what does anyone want with 5 of them ? you can't eat them like you can an orange or even with a bit of sugar like a grapefruit, so I declined and bought an orange instead.
Here's the pictures of the fruits of my labour this afternoon, By the way I didn't use the orange after all, as I made a cherry and almond cake instead, as I had some ground almonds to be used. the flapjacks are an easy peasy bake and enjoyed by my family who are coming over at the weekend.. One good thing about baking, the kitchen is nice and warm. It's still cold, but has got dull, I thought it was going to snow, but it hasn't. Bye for now.
PS not sure whether or not to ice the cherry cake, or leave it, maybe stick some green glace cherries on. ??

Thank you for visiting and please come back, Arlene, Tango and Ruby
