A slice of birthday cake

 

 

Yesterday, my niece Maliyah has her second 1st birthday party. Her cake was this massive chocolate cake with lace patterned icing, white and thick. Adorning the top was a pair of cute little pink Converse trainers, made entirely from icing, plus a number 1 also in pink icing. It was the first time I tucked into a chocolate cake with icing!

Maria’s candle

 

I got a message at last from dear Maria. Her sweet words warmed up my heart like the glow from a candle.

E119

 

 

Strange name for a post isn’t it?. In case you’re wondering, the boiler that services the houseshare I’m living in is giving me an ‘E119’ error. The pressure is low and there’s no hot water or heating in the house. I’ve had to report it to the agency. Now I’m waiting for them to pull their finger out and get it sorted.
