Good Ol' Mary Berry!

I was feeling a bit down earlier. Not sure why, just suddenly had an overwhelming feeling of sadness and needing a good cry. Recent events (which I haven't blogged about) catching up with me, I think. So I had a bit of a sob, and then I had a cuddle with the cats (makes everything better, even when Millie nibbles my fingers) and then I decided I wanted to do some baking. Nothing difficult though. So I pulled out our 'Ultimate Cake Book' by Mary Berry and just thought I'd rustle up a few Fairy Cakes.


You see that one on it's own on the right?
Quality Control ;-)


If you're wondering about the 'brown bits', I chucked a load of chocolate chips in. Can't decide whether to ice them or not. I would do normally but I don't know whether to just save myself the bother this time...

While I was waiting to take them out of the oven, I spotted a black cat in the garden. Chris was out there having a tidy up in the garage so I thought the cat would do a runner when it saw him, but it turns out it's quite friendly.



Chris even gave it a fuss, although he doesn't usually like to encourage them

It's almost the spitting image of Mischief!

It did the obligatory 'roll on the back for a belly tickle' and I noticed that it's belly fur was really curly - so cute!

Not a great photo, but I think you can just see it...

But we won't be encouraging him though. Nope. No Sirree. Although, you know, if I see him again... well, I'll have to say hello, won't I?... It would be rude not to...
