Happy Independence Day!

To all our US friends, 

Happy Independence Day!

 

 

My plans for reading and getting started with the Flat Book Society read were cast to the wind last night when a colleague of mine asked for an accomplice in creating a cake for an American colleague of ours...

 

5 hours, a small fire, and several other mishaps "learning opportunities" later we had finally done it. 

 

 

And, yes, it was delicious.
