Today Stew and Griffin are going over to Whitianga to pick up our Grandson Joshua and his brother.. we will probably have them for a week... or until I can't stand the noise any more!

Brylee and I are going to stay home and bake a cake... or two!

Have some girly time together before all those boys descend on us.
I have not been doing well with the 'diet'.. I am now thinking that the medication I am on to help me sleep is not helping with my metabolism, so may have to go talk to the Doc about it soon. I have gained a bit these last two weeks, even though I have been 'good'... sucks that does.

So, I'm going to make a concentrated effort for a few days to see if I can do better. This heat is NOT helping either.. it's sooooo hot and muggy. How the hell are you supposed to exercise in this heat???

Brylee making a Chocolate Coffee Mud Cake, thanks for the recipe Lelly!
Hee hee, this was hard work on her arms!
Being so very precise! Right down to the very gram.
The VERY BEST bit.... and NO, that was NOT your lunch miss!
Crikey, she even enjoyed this bit. Teaching her that you always have to clean up your mess too!
Cake is now in the oven for almost 2 hours, then we get to put the chocolate icing on.... yum!
End of Day: Stew and the boys are safely back from Whitianga..... and the peace is definitely shattered! Oh and the cake... OH MY GOD..... the cake was/is one of the best I have ever eaten... let alone made! I will show you tomorrow, and give you the recipe. nite nite.


  1. Come to Wellington, it's bl**dy freezing!

  2. ohh can't wait to see the end result of the cake, and the recipe. Your house is going to be very busy for the next week isn't it, try not to mix too much Barcardi in your diet coke!!!!!!

  3. Wow, well done Brylee!
