Fridays

As I have previously said, I do love Fridays! Recently, however, we have fallen into the fabulous tradition of meeting at a lovely pool, equidistant between my school and theirs where the water is warm and the cafe serves truly the best and most beautiful cupcakes I have yet seen in this Northern clime! Spot the missing piece of chocolate flake and strawberry slice and smartie...

So I was doubly inspired to buy buttermilk on the way home. The plan was to make banana bread, thus to join the Linden Grove Friday cake bake! But time was against me, and Jojo had decided that the night demanded jelly. I don't think this quite counts as a Friday cake bake, but I see myself as slipping gently into the pool. (Jojo and Mattman both enter with a great splash.)

Another blog that has been floating on the surface of my mind this week is The Philosophy of Lists. Thence came our Holiday Helper- a list of things to do each day in a tub. We can take turns to pull them out when we need something to do. The golden one says that we will tidy up our toys and it's my joker for the end of the day! Jojo resolved to produce the yellow one. I hope he's not going to wait too long before choosing it!

I love your Holiday Helper Bucket. We had a Family Fun Tin - and activities for sunny days were on green paper, and for rainy days on purple paper. Happy memories.

I'm thinking about a writing prompt bucket now. When I was in Australia, I bought an Australian magazine that featured some lovely cupcakes. Now I am reading this post and completely inspired to make some pretty little cakes!

The cafe cakes look scrumptious! Never mind that you didn't make a cake this Friday. Jelly is good too!!!
