Garfield's Birthday

Story location: Home / bits-n-bobs /

Today is also Garfield's birthday. He's a bit younger than me (he was 'born' in 1978).

Birthday Cake

Story location: Home / Blog / work /

There's a tradition in work where people celebrate occasions such as birthdays by bringing in some cakes. My contribution this year was to bring some assorted muffins and chocolate doughnuts, which I placed in the kitchen before sending out an email to inform everyone.

Unfortunately I used the words 'cake in the kitchen' so now I can't get the UB40 song 'Rat in the kitchen' out of my head

There's some cake in the kitchen, what am I gonna do?

I'm gonna eat that cake, what's what I'm gonna do.
I'm gonna eat that cake.

Yesterday Emma made a Hedgehog Cake based on a recipe and directions in a baking book. We had a small slice of it tonight. It had to be a small piece because we went out to TGI Friday's for our tea and were both rather full when we got back.
