A surfeit of cakes!
As I mentioned last week, it’s my birthday soon – this weekend in fact. That being the case, I took some cakes into work to share with my colleagues. I bought a strawberry sponge, 2 boxes of Thornton chocolate cakes, eight blueberry muffins, 8 lemon muffins and 8 chocolate chip muffins.
All fine and dandy, except I forgot the car was due to be serviced today, so I had to drop it off at the garage, then get the bus to the train station, to take the train to work, burdened down with my handbag and a large Oxfam carrier bag, filled with cakes.
Again, all fine and dandy, except it began to pour with rain and our local station doesn’t really provide adequate shelter, so I got drenched. Anyway, long story short, I arrived at work, wet through, and with aching arms, to find my desk decked out with balloons and banners and loads of cards. Fantastic 😀 The fly in the ointment? I’d forgotten there was a charity event on to raise money for a very worthy cause. Guess what they were selling to raise funds? Yes, correct, cakes, homemade cakes, against which my shop bought goodies could not compete.
Ah well, I may be older, but I’m certainly not wiser 😀
