Cake

More birthday fun with a slap-up Chinese banquet, followed by a visit to Terror from the Skies

Admin2 is reading The Second Sleep by Robert Harris (thx Admin1), an engaging book set in a post-apocalyptic medieval theocracy where archaelology is anathema (he could have callled it A Canticle for Morgenstern).

We scored, um, 8 on the GWQ.

Pizza Cake


Admin2 made a pizza trifle with cake for base, jelly for sauce, custard for cheese and grapes, cherries and bananas for trimmings. It was disturbingly floppy.
Admin2 is reading The Nightwalker by Sebastian Fitzek; nightmare scenario.

Pancake Day


(We also had pineapple upside-down cake. It wasn’t meant to be upside down but it fell out of the oven.)
Admin1 is reading Shatter by Michael Robotham — involving, and very good. But also very harrowing. Admin2 is reading The Dark Flood Rises by Margaret Drabble; various aged intellectuals potter around and eventually push up daisies, with scenic tours of the flood plains of England and the geology of the Canary Islands.
