It was because of this. Yep. Jemima’s birthday was yesterday.
But … I did cook a middle eastern feast for 15 people on a school night that included lamb with prunes, preserved lemon chicken, tabbouleh, green beans, couscous, beetroot dip, hommous, marinated feta and bread.
So I figured a delicious bought cake was acceptable. And the kids thought it looked ace!
And … I also spent a gazillion hours today on this. But I have now connected up the ‘latest news’ posts with the Facebook page and as a result I am (temporarily) feeling quite technologically capable and modern.
Oh, and it’s the end of the school holidays.
Oh, and it’s cold and wet outside.
Have I made enough excuses yet?
