A Day in the Life


At the end of the day
MissM opens the door.


MrsM
Hello! Have you had a good day?

MissM
Yes - I have been busy!
I have decided we will enter
baking into the village show
so I checked out the schedule.
I am entering a Victoria Sponge
and I looked at the other categories
to see what you could do.

MrsM
What?!
I have forgotten how to make bread
and my pastry is like concrete.

MissM
We can enter the 'Tea for Two' category
It is a medley of cakes and things.

MrsM feels faint.
She has never entered a cake show before.


MissM
You need a goal to work towards...

Also, I have been invited
to the Czech Republic for a week
and I have booked the flights.
Don't worry - I will be back
just in time to do the baking.
Can you give me a lift to Gatwick on Saturday?

  5. And I think you must hand cut the doillies. It will get you extra brownie points.
